ELLR. YOU'LL NEVER RIDE ALONE.
Next generation alert system for motorcycles.
I was 17, when my first bike was stolen right under my girlfriends' bedroom window, and with it went my entire ego. Even today, 36 years later, I feel a pinch in my heart. For me and for many of us, our bike is just like another child, and as such, we want to keep it safe and secure, so we can have the peace of mind we deserve.
Over the years I have learned that riders share something in common - we help a friend in trouble. in 99% of the cases, we will stop and help a fellow rider in trouble. And this is true for every country around the world. We call it brotherhood.
With that in mind I have setup Ellr.
Ellr is not your regular tracker, it is much more than that. Ellr automatically detects a theft and an accident and alerts not only the rider, but also his Guardian Angel, his riding group members and the nearby Ellr community. Ellr alerts the rider when his bike battery is low, and automatically records all his rides and allows him to share it with friends. Ellr is easily mounted on any bike model and comes with 2 years unlimited global data plan.
HOW IT WORKS
Ellr is not your regular tracker, it is much more than that. Ellr automatically detects a theft or an accident, and alerts the 3 security circles we built around every biker:
Your Guardian Angel, who is your best friend and will always be alerted if you're in trouble;
Your riding buddies, whom you ride with and know you, will be alerted in a 50 km radius; and
The Ellr community, in a radius of 30 km, who may be willing to help a fellow rider.
Moreover Ellr checks your bikes' real time location; records all your rides and allows you to share them with friends; send you a low battery alert and more. Ellr is designed for a rider who wants to continue his routine, so its fully automated, requires no change of behavior and is very simple to use.

LOW BATTERY DETECTION & MORE
The Ellr tracker has its own internal battery, which is only charging when the engine is on. Ellr sends you a notification to your phone once the battery goes below a certain threshold to remind you to charge it.
Other cool features:
See the real time location of you bike on a map anytime you want.
Put your bike in Transport Mode (TM) when you want to mount it on a trailer.
Your bike details and photo are a nice add, so in an emergency, fellow riders would know what to look for and how to get in touch with you.
Build you community and chose your Guardian Angel. They will be alerted when you're in trouble.
RIDE RECORDING & SHARING
Ellr records all your rides automatically, and allows you to share them with other Ellr riders or on social networks. All you rides are logged and can be accessed from the app. Ellr also saves rides shared with you by fellow riders. All routes can be exported to an external navigation app (coming soon). All this is done without any action needed from the rider. No need to open an app, click a button or press "start"... it's 100% automatic.
Every route comes with all the relevant data: date, time, start-end points, distance, top and average speed.
