Such a useless feature, it doesn't auto connect, you'll have to connect it everytime you get on the vehicle, the features are bugged out, the navigation system is buggy af, I own an aerox, it comes with Bluetooth as default, unless yours doesn't, it isn't worth paying extra for this feature, definitely not worth it.

Don't let this app/feature be part of your motorcycle purchasing decision, it's not worth anything and is useless. You either have to manually open the app every single time you ride or you can leave the app to run constantly so it auto-connects to your motorcycle, this heavily drains your battery. If you do get a notification that someone is trying to reach you, so what? You're riding a motorcycle and can't respond to them anyway so you may as well find out from your phone when you've stopped.

Please make it better, after 1 and half years still the app sucks. There are lot of issues. The app has connectivity issue for everyone. Please add more features like hazard indicator, security lock etc. Thank you. Hope we will get a better app in near future. **Copy-Paste all features from the app "Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X".
