Go to the Settings section on your Blubel app - then Manage Device. There you will be able to see whether you have a device paired. If you do not - press Add device and it should start the connection. If there are several devices around you, you will see them on a list.
Make sure that you’re not calibrating the device right next to your phone or where there may be some magnetic interference. Place the device in the mount on the handlebars. Turn the handlebars left and right like you would turn your handlebars during a ride, as indicated by the lights on the device.
You only need to calibrate your Blubel once. If you change position or angle of the mount on the handlebars or set it up on a new bike, please make sure you calibrate it again: go to Settings > Calibration.
You can make sure the app is no longer synced with your device by unpairing. Just go to Settings > Manage Device and press Unpair. Once you have done that, you can add another device, by selecting Add Device.
You can download the journey for offtrack use or just when you want to save the route. To the right of the search bar is the icon for download route: a downward arrow in a circle. The downloaded routes are listed on the home page, when you open the app.
Yes - you need to search for the route when you have an internet or data connection. Once you have found the route you like, just download it by pressing the download route button. It's to the right of the location bar: a downward arrow in a circle. This route will now appear on the home page and you will be able to guide along it without any internet or data connection. If you go offtrack from this route, the device will go show this (red LED at 12 o'clock position), however it will not recalculate.
Smartphones are getting more and more accurate in estimating your location, but if you're finding that your is lacking accuracy then make sure you have Wifi enabled. This will improve the phone's GPS estimate, particularly in cities.
Some Android phones are a bit trigger happy when it comes to getting rid of apps that work in the background. We are continuously optimising the app to make sure this doesn't happen, however if you are experiencing some trouble, try out the next steps:
1) Stop battery optimisation with the Blubel app: To do this, go to your phone Settings > Battery > Battery Optimisation. You will then see a list of apps. Find Blubel and make sure the option "Don't optimise" is selected.
2) Lock Blubel app in the phone tray so that it does not get cleared: Open the Blubel app, then press the square button on the bottom bar of the phone. This brings up all the apps and you will see a little lock sign in the top right corner of each app. Make sure you press on it so that it is locked for Blubel. This means that if you want to clear all the apps, Blubel doesn't get wiped and it keeps Blubel active during the journeys too.
Please note, that we make sure Blubel is not active if you do not have a live journey. Also using Blubel to navigate actually saves your phone's battery use because you are not using the screen for mapping.
If the app is prompting you to update the firmware, please make sure that the Blubel device and your phone are not running out of battery charge. Then press Update and it will start updating the device. Please do not lock or background the app during the update. Once the update has finished, the app will notify you about this and the device will also light up.
You can sign in to your account on a new phone (or if you have reinstalled the Blubel app) in the same way as you had done before. If it was through a social media account, please make sure to use the same one, otherwise you can log in using the email address.
You can tag hazards your encounter on your journey but ringing your Blubel, while the device is navigating you. Once you have reached your destination, you can end the journey on the Blubel app. The app will prompt you to label the different rings on your journey.
