WheelsOfGrace.com | Volume 11 Issue 5 | 29 H-D™ CONNECT* SERVICE The H-D™ Connect service introduces subscription-based cellular connectivity to equipped Harley-Davidson ® motorcycles to keep riders connected to their motorcycle through their smart phone using the latest version of the Harley-Davidson ® App. The H-D Connect service allows owners to connect remotely to their motorcycle to view key vehicle health information. It also provides the owner with the reassurance of being able to remotely monitor their motorcycle's security, including tamper alerts and stolen vehicle assistance, on the Harley-Davidson App. H-D Connect service is a standard feature for 2020 Touring (except Road King ® /S and Electra Glide ® Standard models), Tri Glide ® Ultra, and CVO ™ models, and the LiveWire ™ motorcycle (in regions where available). Harley-Davidson motorcycles equipped with H-D Connect service include a cellular telematics control unit (TCU) that functions as a (LTE) enabled modem connecting equipped motorcycles to the cloud. Motorcycle status: With H-D Connect service and the H-D App, the motorcycle owner will be able to check key vehicle health information on the H-D App at any time, from any location where sufficient cellular signal is available. Information available through the H-D Connect service includes high-voltage battery charge status or fuel level, available range, tire pressure (on TPMS-equipped models), ride mode (on equipped models), odometer, infotainment software updates where applicable, and riding statistics. LiveWire model owners can use the H-D App to search for, and navigate to, compatible charge station locations, and while charging, view time to completion and receive charging alerts without having to physically be near the motorcycle. Tamper alerts and stolen vehicle tracking service: To ensure that an owner's bike is safe and secure, the H-D connect service indicates the location of the parked motorcycle on a map in the Harley-Davidson App at any time and in any location where sufficient cellular signal is available. H-D Connect service will send an alert to the owner's phone if the security system is activated when the motorcycle has been bumped or is being tampered with. Another alert will be sent to the owner's phone if the motorcycle is moved out of the geo-fenced area, and GPS-enabled stolen-vehicle tracking provides peace of mind should the owner need to locate their motorcycle. Service reminders and notifications: Automated reminders about upcoming vehicle service requirements and other proactive vehicle care notifications will be provided to the rider through the H-D App. * The H-D™ Connect service is not available in all markets. Market availability will vary. The H-D Connect service will be offered for a one-year free trial period after the purchase of a new, untitled 2020 model year Harley-Davidson motorcycle in the U.S. that is equipped with the H-D Connect service. H-D Connect will be available with a subscription charge following the initial period. The H-D Connect service will be available beginning in August 2019 in the united States, Canada, Puerto Rico and most EU countries. Subscription details can be found on: H-D.com/connect.
