    Hi,

    I like my board and all but I find one particular thing on the E-Go website extremely misleading.

    This is blatantly lying and false advertising. They're claiming they have a android app which they clearly don't...
    Either release one or remove it from your website..

    Thanks.

    I agree, there is no Android app available. But i don't understand why I would want to use one.

    Like most apps for similar functions you usually get more information and you can usually change some operating parameters ...like maybe how fast the brakes slow you down...or checking to see if you have enough juice to make it somewhere if you forget to recharge ...or a few other things...heck, if I knew how to make the calls, I'd take a stab at it.

    regarding why anyone would "want" to use one, how about being 10 miles from home when your controller dies (yeah i'm dumb, whatever) and you dont have the usb cable in your pocket to attempt to re-charge it (yeah i'm dumb, whatever). that was me yesterday and i was thinking if i had that damn app i could have definitely used it! ended up walking at least 6 miles to a lousy convenience store where i bought a .50 cent cable for 14 bucks. i was happy the controller did in fact work just leaving it in the usb slot as a "corded" controller without having to charge for any length of time which was kind of cool.

    I never was much for skateboards.

    I regularly ran into the opposite problem but I'd have liked to be able to tweak the board with an Android app, and when my board finally died, I could've used the Android app to make sure the bluetooth module was still functioning before I cut the motor off and removed the battery pack.

    When I rode 14 miles a day, I took a 1" strap with me and when then board battery died, I usually had enough juice to apply the brake while I walked with the board on the ground, towing it against the brake using the strap to keep the board on the ground...and my backpack went on the board.

    And is there anything in that comment that furthers the discussion?

    I think he is stating he has nothing to offer as he is not into skateboards as I am not also. You think there is more to it?
    Let me know.

    I just got my ego 2 skateboard and fully charged it. The distance I traveled so far on Ego/sport mode with the slow setting is 3 miles. I think I can get 7 miles. I was wondering has anyone ever hit 18 miles used on their ego 2? How can I improve the distance traveled per charge and the battery life? Also, has anyone gotten their iPhone set up as the wireless controller I can’t get mine set up even with instructions.
