KTM My Ride box

Anyone know if this is a DIY install?

If not whats the cost of having it fitted at dealer?

£82.80
I just use my android phone that I either put in my pocket if I just want to listen to instruction or fix to my RAM mount if I want to see the route and Bluetooth to my scala rider headset.
works great
KTM my ride really only allows you to answer your phone and see who is calling via the display and handlebar controls not sure how this will help with sat nav

Latest KTM documentation says the 790 will display Sat nav directions on TFT screen if bike is fitted with my ride unit?

if true that makes it a lot more useful, just not sure how that will work? i presume an arrow will appear to show direction

if you go for it, hope you will advise all of us exactly what the latest version will do.

It fits next to your petrol tank under the plastic cover on the RHS.

It still is only available for the adventure models, scroll all the way down and see.

I fitted the MyRide to my 790 myself, it took about half an hour and required removing the tank and some plastics.

After fitting i had to go back to the dealer to get it activated.

It lets you change tunes on your phone and shows the name of the song. It also lets you answer calls showing callers name.

There is no GPS map option for the 790 only the Adventure models.

Honestly not worth the money if you ask me.

but if they did add sat nav functionality then i think it would be worthwhile come on KTM wake up to the 21st century.
you only have to look at the electronics within cars these days to see how quickly the market has changed and lets face it BIKE's are the same price as cars

If they could tie in carplay and android auto that would be amazing, but highly doubtful.

Usually just use my phone with voice navigation and bluetooth, however if I'm riding a specific planned route I do prefer having the maps on screen in front of me, especially on unknown twisty roads as it gives you the ability to anticipate trajectory of the corners. For the moment I'll continue to use either my phone with a ram mount for day trips and the garmin for longer journeys as like you say in it's current state, myride is just not worth it.

Observation is the greatest source of wisdom.
