- Rugged CNC billet aluminium with hard anodisation, bluetooth controller for motorcycles.
- Connects directly to 12V bike power system. It will consume small amounts of energy always – it is recommended to connect past ignition
- With backup internal battery, keeps device on for around 30m after you disconnect from power (with ignition off, it will keep working)
- Allows you to control over 20 Android navigations apps with the same control scheme.
- Allows connection to magnetic wheel sensor
- Intuitive and easy to use app to setup and manage the controller.
- OTA Firmware Updates
Currently our Controller works only with Android devices.
- Minimum Android version is 5.1
- Your device needs to have BLUETOOTH
- You will need to be able to connect to the internet to install the CI Control App
- You need to have a power line in your bike to connect the circuit box power supply to it
- You need to find a secure and stable place to hold the circuit box
2x Four Button Controller
2x Handle Bar Bracket
4x Bracket Screws
1x Circuit Box with all the connectors
1x Wheel sensor cable
Note: There is no power supply, the Terrain Command connects directly to your motorcycle 12V power system.
Secure both controllers to your handlebar, connect them to the circuit box, connect circuito box to your bike 12V power, done!
The two button sections can either be installed both on the same side of your handlebar or you can install each on a different side.
The installation in your handlebar is really simple, just secure it with the two included brackets, plug each button section into the box with electronics and connect the electronics to 12V auxiliary power outlet. When connecting directly to battery, a fuse with no more than 5A rating needs to be implemented (you can use our Battery Extension Cable for that). !!! Warning – if connected directly to battery or always powered auxiliary power outlet on your bike, it will consume small amounts of energy even when not in use. When you do not use your bike regularly, it could result in the bike battery depletion over the period of several weeks.
Wheel Sensor Connection
The connector for wheel sensor (image on the right, black/yellow cables) is intended to be used with a standard magnetic wheel sensor.
Chances are your bike already includes one and is connected to your gauges, in this case you need to either install a second sensor or re-route the connection to the Terrain Command. You should NEVER connect both the Terrain Command and the bike gauges at the same time, this will damage the Terrain Command or electronics on your bike.
We try to keep the control scheme as consistent as possible among all the supported apps.
Some apps like DMD2 allows you to define each key for some of the views like Roadbook.
For other apps we are working with developers to allow the same level of customisation.
As reference this is the default mapping:
CI Control App
To take advantage of all the controller features you will need to install the CI Control App.
With this app you will have be able to:
- Quickly setup the device connection
- Monitor device connection and battery level
- Configure the wheel sensor (wheel size)
- Choose a specific app profile or let the app manage it automatically
- Access the controller HUD (over any app) for quick shortcuts:
- Screen Brightness
- Lock Screen Touch
- Control Volume and Media Player
- Plus many other features
Troubleshooting / FAQ
When the Control App cannot connect to your device you should first check if the device is enabled.
Start your engine and look at the back of electronics enclosure. A red LED indicates that the Controller is powered. The Controller requires at least 13.1V. The red LED indicates that the Controller is either powered by your bike or the auxiliary power source. The auxiliary power source can sustain the Controller for several minutes of operation. If there is no red LED, it means the Controller is not powered and, therefore, no connection can be achieved.
Make sure the device is not already paired with another device, the device should NOT be configured with more than one device at the same time!
If the controller is indeed connected (check your bluetooth devices list), and it still does not work, you should reset the connection.
The easiest way to recreate a proper connection is to remove the controller from the paired devices list and then start the CI Control App.
Button functions are not correct
For the controller to properly work it needs to be connected and it needs the Control App to be working properly!
The fastest way to make sure everything is working is just manually starting the CI Control app, when the app starts it checks if the device is connected and if everything needed is running.
If pressing the keys does actually produce a result, like cursor up/down/left/right but the keys are not doing what they should on any app, then you can do a quick test, long press A (first round button) and check if a HUD overlay menu pops-up. If not then the CARPE accessibility service needs to be started / restarted. Go to your Android device settings and go to Accessibility, search for the CARPE service and start it or restart it (manually stop it and start it again).
Where do i download the Control App
If you have the CARPE Tab then the Controller should be already installed, to make sure you are running the latest version please use the CARPE Manager app that is included with all CARPE Tabs, open CARPE Manager and click on App Shelf to check for updates.
If you are not using the CARPE Tab then you should install the app from Google Play Store.
On-Screen keyboard disappeared
Some devices, specially tablets, will disable the on-screen keyboard because they set the Controller as an external keyboard.
You will need to allow concurrent use of hardware and on-screen keyboard (the on-screen touch keyboard you normally use on your Android device for typing). Click the notification that a hardware keyboard was attached and you will get menu that might look e.g. like this:
Alternatively, go to system settings on your Android device – “Language and input” and click “Physical keyboard” – enable “Show on-screen keyboard”.
