TRIPY II the innovative GPS and Digital Roadbook especially designed for Motorcycling, Off Roading and Rallying.
Tripy II is a smart, easy-to-use GPS that immediately takes you to your chosen destination, whether it's a specific address or one of 800,000 points of interest (hotels, restaurants, service stations, cash machines, etc.) .
However, it is different from other motorcycle and off road specific GPS's in the following ways:
It has a 15 hr battery life, so there is no need to wire it into your machine
It has two choices to navigate by either a scrolling map or dot and arrow turn by turn directions
The screen is specially designed for easy reading in bright sunlight and at night.
The only GPS on the market offering route planning via scenic routes as well as the usual shortest, fastest options.
The only GPS on the market already loaded with over 500 ready-to-ride/drive trips. It provides the nearest itineraries to your location or to a place of your choice and displays route profiles showing distances in kilometres, "loop" or "linear" type itineraries, place of departure and arrival, name of the route's creator, etc.
RoadTracer Pro software which enables you to create your own itineraries using the user friendly interface and detailed Teleatlas mapping which if you like you can also share with other members of your club or with the entire Tripy online community.
If you are an off-road enthusiast then Tripy is unique in that the RoadTracer Pro software lets you track itineraries on any terrain, anywhere in the world via an option that lets you import map images from third parties or ones that you've scanned yourself.

FAQ's about the Tripy II GPS
How do I attach the Tripy II GPS to my vehicle?
The pack comes with a standard attachment (U-base B-Ball) and RAM-Mount arm which fits the vast majority of vehicles. If you would like to customise your installation go to Tripy’s accessories list.
Do I need a power supply for the Tripy II GPS?
No you don’t and this is one of the major advantages of the Tripy II GPS. Its 15-hour continuous battery life means it keeps working faultlessly all through your trips. Although it will need 4 hours to fully recharge, you will only need an hour to get back 80% of its battery life.
The Tripy II GPS is guaranteed for 5 years. What about updates?
Yes, your Tripy II GPS is covered by a 5-year warranty, except for the battery which is limited to one year. All future updates are and will remain free to download on our community website. Only Tele Atlas (TM) mapping update options will be subject to payment.
Why does Tripy have the ball-arrow guidance system as well as standard map guidance?
The ball-arrow symbol, which has always been used in roadbooks for motor sports, globally represents a direction change. Combined with a kilometre count telling you how soon this direction change will come up, this guidance system has the great benefit of being able to be interpreted by the human brain in 1/12 sec, giving additional safety assurance. However, you can choose between the ball-arrow symbols of standard map guidance.
Why have a black & white display on the Tripy II GPS?
We’re sure you know it can sometimes be impossible to read a colour display on your mobile phone or laptop when there are reflections or bright sunlight. That is why Tripy has chosen the technology that can be most easily read in the sun and that is why Tripy II’s display offers the best current technological solution for outdoor use.
Why doesn’t the Tripy II GPS speak?
You know better than anyone that driving a vehicle requires non-stop attention. So here at Tripy we don’t see the point in distracting the driver with a potentially annoying voice. Plus, the ball-arrow guidance system is so intuitive and the black & white screen so easy to read that there is no need to have an alternative guidance system.
What is the Tripy online community all about?
Since its creation, Tripy has already attracted thousands of road trip enthusiasts. Motorists, bikers, off-roaders, classic car owners have all tried and tested Tripy itineraries and experienced fabulously memorable trips.
As you will have certainly noticed, there is an access point to the Tripy User Community on the homepage. http://community.tripy.co.uk/
This portal is a meeting place where Tripy users can swap selected routes and exchange all kinds of information on organising trips, journeys and events based on road books.
Everything from a pleasant jaunt to an amazing off-road adventure, all ideas are welcome!
