MOTOACTV Software Upgrade 7.2

MOTOACTV Software Upgrade 7.2
Exciting news from MOTOACTV!
We're always finding new ways to improve our performance-just like you. Our latest software upgrade for MOTOACTV features workout-building features like redesigned, easier-to-use screens, great new choices for workout plans, and the option to add Facebook and Twitter feeds to your MOTOACTV.

To install the latest software, just connect your MOTOACTV device to your PC or Mac (cable included) and you'll be prompted to download and install. It's free and easy!

Improved Features

New Views, More Options for Golf


To improve game tracking, we added tee location options, more choices for ball lie marking and the ability to track the distance of your putts. We also extended the club distance range in Clubs Profile to better accommodate more players. Playing on a course with multiple segments? No problem! Your MOTOACTV can now support that too!

More Flexible Workout Planning


You can now define your targets for each stage of any activity including running, walking, cycling and more. If you're a runner, you can set a moderate warm up pace for the first 15 minutes, kick it into high gear for the next 30 minutes, and then set the pace for a 10 minute cool down. From warm-up to cool down and everything in between, plan it, do it, track it - better.





New Heart Rate Choices for Fitness Zones

You can now have dedicated heart rate zones for any activity. Specify which types of zones you'd like to use for each workout (basic, Carmichael or custom). Allow MOTOACTV to update your max heart rate, or stay in full control by manually updating your zones and heart rate metrics. Note: Motorola Heart Rate Monitor and Chest Strap for MOTOACTV required.




See Facebook and Twitter

Get wall posts and tweets directly on your MOTOACTV. Just go to the Google Play Store and search for MOTOACTV Facebook and Twitter plug-ins on your Android smartphone. Install the plug-ins along with the latest version of the MOTOACTV app.

Better Views of Your Post-workout Map


Zoom in and pan out on route details after your workout. Touch "Show Route" on the workout summary screen, then touch the screen to zoom in. Pressing and holding on the route screen enables panning.





Easier Wi-Fi Network Setup

You can run, but your SSID can no longer hide! If your Wi-Fi network's name (SSID) is hidden, you can still configure your MOTOACTV. Don't worry. We'll make it quick and easy.
