The Beeline Velo works well with the vast majority of iPhones and Android smartphones!
There are no known issues pairing with iPhones. Some specific Android phones can have issues with Bluetooth pairing, but we find that the vast majority of popular devices (eg. Google Pixel or Samsung Galaxy S lines) work without a hitch.
We've also found that some power-saving modes on Android devices can cause problems with the Bluetooth connection whilst riding, so it is advised to turn power saving modes off whilst using Beeline. You can find out more about the proper steps to check on this in our article on Android Battery Saver and Background Activity Issues here :)
We've tested the device extensively with the following smartphones, to make sure that you can get out riding worry-free.
iPhone 5s, 6, 6s, SE (all generations), 7, 8, X, XR, XS, 11, 11 Pro, 12, 12 Pro, 13, 13 Pro
Google Pixel, Pixel 2, Pixel 3, Pixel 3a, Pixel 4, Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 5, Pixel 6
Samsung Galaxy S8, S10, S20, S21, A7, A21s, A50
Huawei P10 Plus, P20 Lite, P30 Pro
Xiaomi POCO F1, POCO M3 Pro
Motorola G6 Play
Of course, we have very many happy Beeliners cycling around with different phones. The key thing to check is that your phone meets Beeline's compatibility requirements:
Data connection (required for setting up a route, rerouting, firmware updates)
Phone updated to the latest available operating system version (At a minimum, Android 8.0 (Oreo) or higher with Google Play, iOS 13.0 or later)
Bluetooth Low Energy compatible (Bluetooth 4.0)
We can’t absolutely guarantee Beeline will work reliably with your phone even if it meets these requirements because hardware and software can vary between different phones, but we test Beeline devices with a broad range of phones for peace of mind.
