We interviewed Marc, a student from Barcelona whothanks to Honda Mapittook his Honda Scoopy back after he got it stolen at his university’s entry. 

When and where did the theft occur? 

It was March the 12th at 16.18 h. In front of Ronda de Dalt (Barcelona). I am currently studying in ESIC. I was checking my notes for an examwhen suddenly a movement alert popped up in my phone. I didn’t give much importance because someone could just lean on itBut suddenly, I saw my motorbike moving in the map. I ran to the spot where I parked it, but it wasn’t there anymore: They just took it away.

called 112, the emergencies number. I also saw a police car patroling.I explained them what happened, showed them the app and hopped into their backseats to chase the thieves. 

We were following the real time spot in my display. It was  400 metres away but we couldn’t see it from our position. 

The spot took the way to Cornellà. After few minutes, the car stopped in a one-way street. Once we got there we started looking at every motorbike with their plates. 

After finding itwe tried to get fingerprintsbut we couldn’t because the thieves had used glovesThe only fingerprints in the motorbike were mineThat scene looked like a complete espionage!. After that, the officers called the crane to take it away. 

How do you think Mapit helped you to find the motorbike? 

was feeling safe at all time. I started realizing that my bike was stolen, but I still hoped to find it. Having the app and being able o follow the location of my motorbike felt like I could take it back. I started realizing that my bike was stolenbut I still hoped to find it.

I can always know where it has beenIt feels safe because you never know what could happen 

¿What use do you give? ¿What do you value the most from Mapit? 

really value having the updated location of my motorbike every two seconds. I guess this is one of the best ones you can get out there. 

It is very useful to me when it comes to routescalculating ride time, distances. Alsom being able to see the rides allows me to optimize time and consumtion. I kinda optimize the exit times. 

That scene looked like a complete espionage!

¿How did you meet us?  

was living in Barcelona when I bought my Honda SH, which is in fact one of the most stolen modelsThey recommended me the Honda Mapit in the store and decided to install it. I read about it before and I though it was really interesting. I knew that there were other chinese devices with similar specifications, but not as precise as the Mapit.

 ¿How long have you been using Mapit?  

For two years, I bough the motorcycle on October 2017, when I got my Mapit installed 

¿What bike did you use to ride, or you currently ride? 

bought a Honda SH, the same one I currently use after having it back. 

¿How often do you use the app? 

More than I expectedI use to check it twice a day, some days even more. But I don’t really check it when I’m not using my motorbike.

¿What does Mapit mean to you? 

It means control, always having it with me

It means control, always having it with meDespite I feel safe with it, I’m always a bit insecure about what could happenWhen I get an alarm I feel a bit stressed. 

¿Would you recommend Mapit? 

Definitely. Every motorcycle should have it. If I didn’t have this device would not have recovered  my Scoopy!
