Motosmarty - Map for Motorbikes with Dangers & POI Alerts en Route

Motosmarty bvba
Motosmarty lets bikers warn each other about road hazards without pulling out their iPhones. You can mark potholes, slippery surface, tricky corners and other dangerous locations and share them with the community. The members receive advance vibration & audio alerts to avoid bad surprises ahead. The app works by integrating a smartphone's built-in sensors and crowdsourced current road conditions with an interactive map and preemptive location-based alerts.

*****************************
Interface 100% for bikers
*****************************

Motosmarty has a specially designed interface to let you fully benefit from the app without interfering with your riding tasks. Your iPhone stays in your pocket throughout your ride while allowing you to:

- mark a dangerous spot at your current location with a simple double-tap on the phone in your pocket.
- leave a voice memo to remember the type of danger
- feel the phone vibrate on an approach to a reported POI
- confirm or deny POIs on your way with a simple tap on the phone
- receive detailed warning messages via cable or bluetooth headset
- automatically filter warning messages as function of the number and the type of votes and the POI direction relative to the direction of your movement.

******************************
Information 100% for bikers
******************************

- 20 types of POIs including:

* Pothole
* Fissure
* Low Manhole
* Minefield
* Uneven road slabs
* Slippery road
* Slippery paint
* Cushion bumps
* Guard stones
* Dangerous curve
* and more...

- user-defined hazard warning area distance and angle:
