Orange, Honda run Spanish connected motorcycle trial

Wednesday 7 March 2018 | 14:47 CET | News
Orange Spain has announced a deal with Japanese motorcycle manufacturer Honda and Catalan startup Mapit IoT to launch a pilot of GPS tracking technology using the operator's LTE-M network. The trial will see 18,000 Mapit GPS devices added to Honda bikes, allowing users to monitor the GPS position of their vehicle at all times, track it via their smartphone if it gets stolen and receive a mobile alert when the device detects movement or a blow to the bike. The corresponding app also allows Honda bike owners to share their location, view their routes and monitor usage statistics.
