Changing Ride Mode of Onewheel Plus Manually



  • I have heard hearsay about whether or not you can change the ride mode of the Onewheel+ manually so I wanted to put this debate to bed. Spoiler: You can. https://youtu.be/Ihx59I62j9w

    Ride Modes I observed:
    4 = Classic (Slow - Cap at 10)
    5 = ? (v1?) (About the same feeling as my V1 in extreme. Caps at about 12.5 - 13)
    6 = Extreme (Fast - Cap at 19?. I hit 17.5 and didn't get pushback)

    To view the current ride mode on desktop or android visit the following site on chrome: https://drewbaumann.github.io/onewheel-web/



  • @drew Oh wow, that's good to hear! Would love to be able to ride at 15-17 without pushback.



  • @drew good meeting you yesterday! I just watched your video, great job and thank you for posting! Here's what I found: first off I'm an android user so I've been using the stock Onewheel app and also the POWheel app, both from the Google Play Store. Using my iPod I searched the Apple App Store for OWheel Buddy so I could purchase it and it's currently not available, not sure why. Anyhow, using my Android, regardless of whether or not I use the stock Onewheel app or the POWheel app, I can connect to my + and see battery %age, mileage, etc- but the mode I'm currently in doesn't show up. I did as you said and with the board on its side I turned it on, and right off the bat it flashed 7 times in quick succession; then a brief pause, then 7 quick flashes, then pause, etc. In your video and your note on this forum you go up to 6, but I believe there's one more notch- 7. I'm not gonna mess with my settings because whatever mode I'm in with the 7 flashes, it's super fast and smooth, hard for me to imagine a next gear beyond that :)

    So good question. The numbers in the app are flashes -1. So 7 flashes = "ride mode 6" in the app.

    @groovyruvy I might update my web app (https://drewbaumann.github.io/onewheel-web/) to show those numbers for people unable to get the owheelbuddy app.



  • @groovyruvy Updated https://drewbaumann.github.io/onewheel-web/

    You can use this on your android phone.



  • @drew sweet bro! I successfully paired the + to my android. It shows I have 100% battery, but isn't displaying lifetime odometer reading, ride mode, serial # or hardware version. Doesn't appear those are clickable links, did I do something wrong?



  • @groovyruvy Just refresh and try again. Make sure you are standing close. The code could probably be rewritten. It was an experimental library when I wrote it.
