Hey, Ive been waiting nearly 3 months for a 16X to come to me from Ali seller... I have made a mistake and tried to connect it to the KS app after first unboxing. I can make my GPS to look like I am in china, but I didnt make this the first time opening the KS APP and pressing connect. The wheel locked instantly and I havent managed to use KS again... I can use the wheel no problem with Darkness Bot, but there I cannot do any updates. I am on version 2.02 Is there any solution please? Thank you guys, stay safe!
Like some other people here on the forum I have tried to install a gsm/gps tracker in my EUC (A Kingsong KS-16), but I gave up last year since I did not find anything small enough to fit anywhere inside the tiny space under the shell. My new idea is to buy the Deeper Lock. It's a bike lock that has a gps/gsm tracker built in and also is charging itself with solar power. They are looking for funding right now on Kickstarter: The drawback might be that it is much easier to get rid of it since it is clearly visible. But on the other hand, this also has a loud alarm that will trigger when someone tries to tamper with the lock or move the bike. There are still quite a many thousand dollars to collect before the campaign reaches it's funding target (wink wink nudge nudge ), but I hope they will make it so that I can probably have it in my hands some time next year. While waiting for Deeper Lock, I am using another kind of bike lock, from Ali Express: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Bluetooth-Smart-Lock-with-Alarm-Bicycle-Smart-Lock-Bicycle-Motorcycle-Keyless-Lock-APP-Control/32803360594.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.IwWEyB I know it's Ali Express and quality could be anything between bad and par. But it's not sold for one dollar or something, it actually costs some $25 USD. I cannot really say much about it since I have only had it for a few days. But it feels pretty solid. I have no doubt that the cable could be cut off, but as with the before-mentioned Deeper Lock that would trigger an alarm. The sound level of the alarm is quite high, if you stand close you don't want that sound ringing in your ears for very long. It is locked/unlocked by an app that is bluetooth connected to the lock. There is an autolock feature in the app that will automatically unlock it as soon as there is a bluetooth connection and lock it if the phone is too far away from the lock. It lacks the GPS/GPRS function. But since I always never leave my EUC unattended other than for very very short periods, I feel that the most likely cause of loss of my EUC would be a robbery, and in that case the alarm would trigger when me and my phone are too far away (or I believe I can probably trigger it manually in the app), which I think will give me an increased likelihood of confuse and scare a robber so that I might be able to get it back.
As people know it is hard to find a way to lock a KS. This is my solution. I drilled a 3/8" angled hole through the pedal from the bottom . The hole is angled so that it come out the existing pedal screw hole. When the lock is in the hole it blocks the screw hole that allows you to remove the pedal. Technically you could still remove the pin from the other side but it would not be easy trying to suck the pin out. I use a full size 10 foot master cable lock so that I can lock two bikes and two EUCs but you could also use a regular full size lock. ( As you can see this is a learner wheel. Five people have learned to ride on this wheel so far. )
