The Hero Connect app uses the telematics hardware with a built-in SIM that is securely fitted in the two-wheeler. It uses the cellular network to provide a gateway for communication between the application and device. While the cloud will store the data, the app will receive the information from the cloud and display it on the mobile.

The Hero Connect app is enabled with an alert mechanism, which sends a notification and SMS to the user and emergency contacts in case the vehicle topples over or is involved in an accident. Detailed trip logs, including ride analysis based on riding and behavioural patterns of the rider will also be available. Users will be able to review all the past trips, up to past six months, with details such as starting point and end location, total distance, total time taken, routes driven and speed alerts, if the two-wheeler crosses the user-defined speed limit.
