Easy Motion Bluetooth Premium App setup and user’s manual
- Download the BH Premium APP from either the Apple Store for iOS or Google Play for Android.
- Remove the LCD display from the handlebar mount and insert the Blue Tooth Module (BTM) until it clicks into place.
- Turn the BTM on by holding down the button for 2 seconds. The blue light will come on, and then it will blink until connection with your phone has been established. Once a successful connection has been made, the left side of the button will remain solid blue while the right side will blink.
- The APP will pick up all blue tooth items in the area. The BTM will show as “Unknown Device” in the list. Select it to make the connection. You will know a successful connection has been made by the blue tooth item being shown in orange. 1. Home page 2. Settings 3.
- You will notice in the connection status screen that “Location Satellites” and “Sensor Connection” are also called out. The Location Satellite is basically a cell phone signal and used for the GPS functions. The sensors will turn orange when a successful link has been established with your heart rate monitor (heart icon), cycle computer (speedometer icon) or your cadence sensor (chainring and pedals icon).
- From the settings screen you can also setup your user profile. Here you can enter your name, weight, height, age and select metric or imperial units. Simply go to the user profile page and press on the digits of the unit you wish to change. Below example is an change age. When finished you can use the back button in the upper left corner to take you to settings and then the home page if needed. NOTE: The large buttons found on the home page are often shown at the bottom of the screen as well like in the below photo. These can be used to shortcut to those features.
- Once you have the User Profile set, you’ll want to do the same for Bike Profile. We’ll go through these one by one since they are not as common as weight, height and age. Like before pressing the screen on the units will allow you to change the number. When you press wheel size a scrolling window will appear at the bottom. Select the size that matches your tire (size is printed on the side of the tire). The APP will calculate the correct cm unit for you.
Next is the crank arm length. On Easy Motion bikes, this is almost always 175mm, but to be sure you can check the back of the crank arm (usually by the pedal axle).
Battery Amp Hour size can be found on a sticker on the batteries belly. This number is usually rounded up. For in the below example, 8.7 is set at 9 in the APP.
- The sensors connection is used to pair the Premium APP with your heart rate monitor, cadence sensor or cycle computer.
- Locate My Bike is only for bikes that are also equipped with our aftermarket GPS unit.
10. Motor Settings is used on Easy Motion All Wheel Drive bikes to choose between front, rear, full and eco. Simply press on the mode you want and you are ready to go. A small square will appear next to the mode that is selected.
- The last option on the Settings page is the System Diagnostic button. From here you can choose 3 different diagnostic features. The first one is Battery Check. Clicking here will show you the SOC (State of Charge) for the battery and also the SOH (State of Health). SOH shows you how much capacity the battery has. As the battery ages, its capacity will decrease. So even with a 100% charge a battery with 90% SOH will not last as long as one with 98% SOH. Once a battery hits 80% SOH, it is considered to be at the end of its useful life. Although it can still be used. It will not get you nearly as far as it use to.
The Torque Sensor Calibration option is very helpful. If this sensor is set too high or low it can cause problems. Examples would be: the motor not wanting to turn off when not under load or requiring too much pedal force to activate. 1.0-1.15V is the optimum range. It will also say “SENSOR OK”.
Lastly is the System Errors screen. This will list any error codes the bike has experienced. In the window you will see the description of the error, its associated code# and recommendations of what to check in the comments window.
- The Ride button on the home screen is used to select the type of mode you want to use to deliver the power. Once you arrive at the manual screen, you will see a slider at the bottom. Slide the white dot from left to right to increase the % of assist. The exact % is shown just above the slider. Once the desired assist level is set, you can start your ride. NOTE: There is no throttle mode when using the Premium APP.
The second mode option is GPS. When you click the GPS button you will be taken to a screen with a map and a green S marking your current location. Also take note that the green S icon at the bottom of the screen is highlighted. This indicates that the start can be changed by pressing on the desired start location on the map (usually it is best to use your current location).
Next, you’ll want to set your destination. Press the red Destination icon at the bottom of the screen for a few seconds. Now it will be highlighted and you can press and hold where you want to go on the map to set the destination. While there is no way to enter a text address, you can zoom in for greater accuracy. Then double-tap the destination icon and the address will come up. If this isn’t where you want to go, hit the red “X” and reset. If the start is no longer visible like the photo below, hitting the compass style circle in the bottom right of the screen (circled in green) will take you back to the start location on the map.
You can set pit stops along the way, with the yellow Intermediate button. Press and hold the yellow icon at the bottom of the screen and then press on the map where you would like to stop along the way to your final destination. This is used for route planning. It is also a good way to modify the route. If you find the initial route uses major roads that you would like to avoid, place intermediate stops along the side street you want to go down and a new route will be calculated using these.
Once you have set all of your markers, click the “OK” button in the bottom left corner. This will plan the route, highlight it in red on the map and the distance will be indicated just above the “GO” button in the bottom left corner.
If everything looks good, you are set to press the “GO” button. The GPS ride display will now come up (bottom of the screen) and you can now ride with the bike providing maximum assistance while making sure you don’t run out of battery. Also note that the destination address will be displayed at the top of the screen.
The final ride mode option is via heart rate. This will take you to a screen that allows you to enter the maximum heart rate you want to have. The bike will assist you as much as possible to keep your heart rate from going over this set parameter; in the photo below 155 beats per minute. To change the number simply press and hold then use the keys to enter a new value. NOTE that a heart rate monitor must be used in conjunction with the BTM for this function.
- A few other ride features are also accessible from the ride screens. Starting at the top of the screen you will see that you can choose “Normal” or “Hybrid” map. Normal showing only streets and names while hybrid shows the corresponding satellite image.
If you move to the bottom of the screen you will see two orange rectangles inside a button. One filled in and the other in outline. Press and hold this to modify the screen displayed during the ride. You can choose the type of map displayed, number of parameter screens in view, map only or information only display. The one that is dimmed is what is selected (the street level view is currently not available).
Here is what an all information screen would look like. NOTE: going all information allows as many as 12 windows to be displayed. For larger numbers choose fewer screens to be displayed during the ride. A slider to choose how many will be visible when information only is selected for display.
The ascent map is useful for planning your route around the flattest way. The red indicates descents and no assist while the climb indicates ascents and assist power.
Next to the display button is a button that looks like a light bulb. This is used to turn on the bicycle lights if you are using the light wiring kit that powers them using the bikes battery.
The final button at the far left that looks like a speedometer is to employ the “Walk Mode” function. This is a Europe only feature and not used on bikes in North America. NOTE: There is no throttle mode when using the Premium APP.
- Returning to the home page, you will see that there is a “History” button. This will show you the complete list of every ride that has been recorded.
You can select individual rides by pressing on the date of the desired ride. This will highlight it. At that time you can click the “Detail” button at the bottom for more stats of that ride or click “Delete” to remove it from the list.
The small white dots at the bottom can be used to scroll through more ride information that shows the route taken and the climbing done for that ride.
