Does the Ally V2 app use data when following a route on my Year 10 Lezyne GPS computer? Or, do I still need my phone paired to my GPS device to follow a route that I’ve already loaded to it?
After loading a route to your GPS device, your phone is no longer needed to follow the route. The device will continue to give directions based on GPS and not use any of your phone’s data. However, if you are following a Point A to Point B navigation and you have “rerouting” set to automatic (in the device’s menu), it will then use the app and your phone’s data to reroute your course. If you would prefer your device to not reroute automatically, set it to “manual” and you can still follow the breadcrumb trail to find your way back onto course. Once back on course, directions to your destination will start back up.

What is GPS and how does it work?
It’s an incredibly complex technology that only our in-house computer engineers can understand. Check out this site for more information: http://spaceplace.nasa.gov/gps/en/
Is the Lezyne GPS mount the same as Garmin’s mount?
No—while similar in looks, it’s a better mounting system. We have 4 large tabs that we call our “X-Lock” design, which is a much more secure connection because it's a push and turn to release the unit. The GPS device is inserted at a 45-degree angle and then pressed down and twisted until it “locks” into place. Rigorous testing has proven it to be a superior and safer mount. It’s also unique in that it can’t be mounted sideways—no matter what position the mount is in, the computer can always be mounted forward.

Dense clouds are known to degrade the GPS signal on any GPS device. However, we have the latest GPS chip technology and advanced GPS programming to help maintain the best possible connection.
