Xplova G5

Searching the right route is a thing of the past, today there are three of these devices available to you at the Kärntnerhof.

Restricted to car drivers so far, the G5 outdoor navigation device by Xplova, now also enables a dynamic route guidance (so-called routing) for bikers and hikers. Gone are the days when prior to a tour, the route had to be created tediously with the help of waypoints on the PC and loaded on the outdoor navigation device. With the new G5 it’s as simple as in a car: by choosing the starting/end point via touchscreen display, the optimum route is displayed. Of course, there is the option to select the desired terrain – streets, hiking paths or cycling trails – enabled through a sophisticated linking of street, grid and vector maps.

From the hotel to the hut – no problem for XPLOVA G5.
Not in the mood to continue? Or for a short detour instead? If so, select the new end point via touchscreen and the new route is immediately shown – it’s as simple as that.

Fitted additionally with heart rate, speed and cadence transmitter, the G5 makes a complete bicycle computer.
The tours can be stored and later viewed and analyzed on the PC as the G5 supports all common file formats (analysis with Google Maps, for instance).
