My son has a Solowheel Glide 3, purchased a few months ago. I'm looking at http://hobby16.neowp.fr/buy/ The charge doctor site indicates a GX12-3 connector for Glide 3, but my son's wheel has a 4-pin connector. I'm not sure if it's GX12-4 or GX16-4 (or something else?), and can't measure it. I'm thinking that this looks like a GX12-4. Does anyone know for sure? Here are the pics...
I’ve had my Glide 3 (INMOTION V8) for about a month now, and I tried to change the sounds on the wheel yesterday. I downloaded a few free sound packages in the INMOTION app, but when I try to transfer them to the Solowheel, I get an error that says “Applying music failed.” The only way I can add new sounds is by recording my own, but then I can’t revert back to the default factory sounds. Has anyone ever had this problem or know of a way to fix this? Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Nick
So... backstory in an attempt to justify my bad decisions I've been rollerblading for the majority of my life and about a month ago decided to buy a Segway miniPro to commute to the bus stop. After getting the hang of it, I decided it was just too slow to meet my needs and a bit too awkward to carry on the bus. Fortunately, I found a better use for it. It was the perfect speed to teach my Husky to jog next to me so she can get more of a workout than our usual walks. This had been going extremely well and the Segway's balance and control made it easy to control her 'personality'. After doing a ton of research, I decided to purchase my first EUC (V8) and learned how to ride in a few hours. After the second day, I felt comfortable enough to ride from the bus stop and back. After a couple of weeks of riding, I was starting to feel extremely confident on the wheel. Around the same time, I had been taking my pup to the park and Segway'd around a low foot traffic area to tire her out. Again, this had been going really well and I was very proud of my girl. Naturally, I realized 10-11mph was not enough to get my pup running and now I had all this extra power with the V8 and I was confident in my riding abilities. I had already taken her on a short ride with the V8 around my neighborhood at a slow speed and she acted the same as on the Segway. After a few laps around the park on the Segway, I decided to take her on the V8 to really get her running and to tire her out (only wearing my wrist guards). She was doing extremely well and we were almost done for the day when I decided to take her around the park for a final lap. At this point she was trailing behind because she had already gotten a good workout in. And then... a squirrel ran across the sidewalk in front of us and my pup kicked it into gear and sprinted toward the squirrel which gave me a huge yank to the left going around 15mph. I held onto the leash for dear life and unfortunately overcorrected and fell off the wheel on the right side and skidded several feet on the sidewalk. Luckily, because of my rollerblade experience, I bent down when the instability hit and fell forward. My wrist guards took the brunt of the fall and I managed to escape with a sore knee cap and a scrape on my forearm. Lessons learned: Wear full protective gear, especially when you're doing something new or have something like a dog that you can't have full control over. When taking your dog on your EUC, ensure that at minimum they have a good call back in case you need to let go of the leash to save a crash. When she took off after the squirrel, I should have dropped the leash then called her back. Running your dog on your EUC is a bad idea unless you're willing to put in a ton of time to train your pup and yourself. Otherwise, this is a danger to you and your pup. There were many times during training on the Segway she wanted to walk in front of me and stop, which could have resulted in getting hit if this was at higher speeds. If you're like me, you'd rather hurt yourself than your pup so you end up taking spills to avoid hurting your pup. At some point during my fall, I let go of the leash and my pup went after the squirrel. Attached is a photo of where she ended up after I dropped the leash.
I just got the Solowheel Glide 3 (Inmotion V8) and can’t reconnect to the wheel by Bluetooth. When I set up the app there was a password for the app and a separate password for connecting the wheel to Bluetooth. I am quite certain when creating the password for Bluetooth there were letters and numbers as options and even wrote it down immediately afterwards. But now trying to reconnect it only shows numbers. Has anyone else dealt with this or know how to reset the Bluetooth connection password? I’ve written Solowheeel and they didn’t know off hand but are working on it. Great service from Jeff by the way. I’m impatient and want to know MPH, distance and play with the lights. Today was my first day riding a wheel, oh I’m in love! Tha ks in advance.
