Is Mounting Your Smartphone on the Handlebars Outdated?

Chigee AIO-5 Lite motorcycle Smart Riding system meets Japanese standards, reduces smartphone navigation damage in tough conditions

Many riders attach smartphones around the handlebars as navigation aids. Occasionally, we hear stories of smartphones breaking or falling due to vibrations, or becoming unusable due to overheating. Therefore, quite a few riders prefer not to mount smartphones around the handlebars if possible. For such riders and for those interested in installing a dashcam, it's worth knowing about the "Chigee Smart Riding System AIO-5 Lite," a motorcycle-mounted smart riding system with equipped dashcams by Chigee. Chigee is a specialized motorcycle technology company that also exhibited AIO-5 Lite at EICMA (the Milan Show). This model was specifically developed for the rigorous demands of motorcycle use, including vibrations and rain.

By using a 5.0-inch monitor that isn't too big for motorcycles, visibility is ensured without standing out from the side, preserving the vehicle's style.

In terms of features, it supports wireless connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, automatically connecting upon turning on the main switch, providing the utmost convenience. It's not just a navigation system; it also alerts you to incoming calls, emails, and social media messages. For navigation, it shows smartphone maps on the monitor, so you don't need to update map data like with regular car navigation systems. You can easily use the touchscreen to control it (basic functions are also available with analog switches at the top of the monitor, even if you're wearing non-touchscreen gloves). With its high-performance CPU and 5GHz Wi-Fi connection to smartphones, it offers quick response times during operation. Also, because it's IP67 waterproof and dustproof, and has rubber covers for the charging port and microSD card slot, you can ride in the rain without any issues. It's securely fixed with torque bolts for added security. Furthermore, careful consideration has been given to vibration resistance, with the use of red rubber parts in the pillar mounting section to absorb vibrations.

The dashcam is equipped with front and rear cameras, functioning as a rearview monitor. It also includes a Blind Spot Detection (BSD) system, commonly seen in modern cars, which alerts when vehicles approach from the sides. Additionally, recorded data can be quickly reviewed on the monitor and downloaded to a smartphone using an app, allowing for enjoyment as touring videos. Regular firmware updates ensure ongoing improvements in functionality.

There are also plenty of options available, such as mounts, antenna brackets, and even wireless remotes that allow you to control apps and switch screens without taking your hands off the handlebars, as well as conveniences like tire pressure sensors.

    Great products! I find the screen too small though. When Chigee produce a 6.5 or 7 inch version
    I am certain I will purchase the complete set.
    Great work guys.
    Regards, Wayne.
