As most of you must know tha Ather 450x comes with a fully functional speaker and WIFI module but its never been in use while every other scooter with screen offers it.As atherstack 5 is being polished out with annouced and lab features coming slowly this would be great addition as scooter is already capable of this through test/service menu.
Simple features like casting phone screen to watch youtube or stream something on dashboard using phone hotspot(pretty handy if you are waiting for ordered street food ).Even satellite view for maps over wifi.
These are doable on scooter’s internet but I can understand the reasons and network plan has its very own benefits rather than pairing phone for hotspot each time.
Absolutely agreed…Even though the streaming option is a little out of box, the speaker and WiFi functions optimization would be welcomed by everyone…If this happens,then Ather could help us to completely utilize the vehicle by enabling these …
That Wi-Fi feature, I would very much like to use being staying in a Jio data coverage deprived area.
It has another extra port (two terminals) on the left side of the boot left unconnected anywhere. Is that for some other usage?
Hate to break it to you but Snapdragon 212 is capable of wifi, but screen sharing or casting is way out of it’s limit, the processors is almost buried in tons of background work. With monitoring over 30 sensors, CanBUS, and data communication to and back to Ather servers. Maybe better processor was asked in 2020, still they haven’t gone for it. So maybe in Gen4 something may improve or not.
The port isn’t inside the boot. But you can guess the location; it’s somewhere on the middle of the left side boot; there is a small mark/cap. If you remove the basket, just outside of the location, a two terminal port is hooked. Below image is just explanation of the similar port, not the exact port. Sorry, I deleted photos taken somehow a few days ago.
Not even remotely thats for a sensor, but it didn’t make it to final stage of production. The usual diagnostic for scooter was in the display,where there is a mirco usb port but they have changed the location of that too from gen 2 onwards.
Only gen 1 and gen 1.5 has accessible diagnostic port. They have moved it to someplace else in gen 2 onwards, since i don’t have a access to one don’t know where it’s placed. Sure other gen 2 owners might be to your help.
