KTM MY RIDE navigation

KTM MyRide is standard on all versions of the 790 Adventure. You need to:

  • Enable the navigation option: Navigate in the menu to “Extra Options”/“KTM MyRide” and enable navigation there.
  • Download the KTM MyRide app (£8/€9) to your smartphone. If you want to operate without a data service you can also download the country maps to your phone. The Bluetooth (optional) symbol on the combination instrument actually refers to a pairing of a device via KTM MY RIDE

The navigation app is fairly basic, and the display in the bike is just directions and pictograms. For short road trips it is fine. But not at the level of a real GPS or phone app like waze, google map or calimoto.

Most importantly, if the phone lose the connection with the bike (which happens rather often in my experience) the display will stay stuck on the latest guidance and not refresh. This caused me to miss some turns 🙂

But if you have an Android phone you are in luck! Inmate Undingen on advrider created an app that reads notifications from Google maps, adapt them and send them to your dashboard. Uncanny.

Note that early bikes had problems connecting to phones and showing navigation. The bike may need a software update.

Very old bluetooth devices may have problem communicating with the bike. The first gen Sena SMH 5 and 10 for example, the ones without USB port for updating, will not work properly.
