I wrote this app so I could get audio warnings in my bluetooth helmet when going over the speed limit. The official app knows the current speed and the speed limit as it can flash the speed limit icon on the bike dashboard, so I made an app to monitor this and give me beeps.

It's a work in progress so yeah the UI is minimal. Just got pretty guages working for speed + rpm but it's now beer o'clock so updates and screenshots tomorrow

currently adding more to it such as recording rides so I can export graphs to excel and a decent display of current info (speed, rpm, etc).

note:
only tested with my supertech using km. need a testers for other bikes.
also a computer is required briefly after installation of this app to complete the process. Instructions are in the app.

Agreed!

How did you gain access to the inputs (current speed, speed limit, etc)? I wouldn't think Piaggio would provide an API, or any easy way to get the info.

My app is able to 'monitor' the official app (the official app needs to be connected to the bike). I'm able to do this because their programmer did something stupid 😆🛵

By this stage I've actually learnt enough of the Bluetooth protocol that i might soon try directly establishing with the bike ...

Nice work! I don't have a Supertech, but am generally interested in electronics and programming projects! Please post a link if you ever decide to share details on GitHub or anywhere else.

Good work!

Happy to test miles on mine (I don't have a Supertech but I have the PMP module installed on my GTS. It should work, right?)

Also, I'm a designer by trade, and if you want a hand to make the app look a bit less like something from 1986 let me know...

don't know about the PMP yet ...

the dashboard (speedo, tacho, etc) should work with the following with a small amount of testing as they are all supported by the offical Vespa app:

Supertech 125/300
Elettrica
Primavera 125/150 Sport
Sprint 125/150 Sport

the speed limit currently will ONLY work with Supertech as the Vespa app only supports navigation on the ST. I may investigate adding my own mapping / navigation system based on something like google maps and then maybe able to add speed limit stuff for other bikes, but I doubt this will be too soon.

I'm still rapidly changing the main dash, but have no idea for an icon yet ... ?
