As part of the digital world of Bosch eBike Systems, the eBike Connect portal has been hosting content from Outdooractive since December 2018. The eBike Connect portal allows e-bikers to plan their routes, transfer them to the Nyon on-board computer and then record, evaluate and share their own activities online. Routes from Outdooractive are available for download in the “Erkunden” section. Frequent updates to the eBike Connect app combine with up-to-date content from Outdooractive to bring a new level of connectivity and comfort to e-bike fans.

Have you ever wanted to brighten up someone’s Christmas? And wouldn’t it be nice to have a bit of fun whilst doing so?
The purpose of digitizing tourism in a destination is to ensure that guests are provided with the most up-to-date and relevant information available.
Winter is almost upon us and many winter sports fans are looking forward to the cold season. We are also finding it hard to wait for it to finally start again!
A competitive and evolving outdoor tourism industry and business environment demands the right tools to help keep you and your guests on track, which is why Outdooractive has introduced Outdooractive Business.
The new module Web App ‘Map’ is now available free-of-charge to all customers who already use web frontends such as Regio or Destination. Now you have the opportunity to give your guests an ‘empty’ map with which they can get their initial bearings and filter in content as desired before taking this outline to the Route Planner stage.
‘Be careful what you wish for.’ This is a phrase that has been repeatedly used by Chris Doyle of the ATTA (Adventure Travel Trade Association). How right he is, as you can see in the ever louder discussions taking place about so-called ‘overtourism’. In many regions the steadily rising numbers of bookings are leading to symptoms of overload. How these might be counteracted is explored in this article.
The categories ‘Notices’ and ‘Closures’ make it easier to communicate current updates to guests and others in the region. Now this helpful feature has been optimized and refined to provide even more accurate information and greater control in respect of affected areas.
Guests looking for a source of inspiration are able to search through a variety of tools, platforms and channels. However, destinations are losing more and more control over this defining phase of the customer journey. We want to give you back that control by offering the possibility to be able to communicate with your guests more efficiently and directly. These are the main drivers of an effective information exchange. It is also of central importance to be able to communicate with both current visitors and potential ones. Outdooractive provides the tool required for a direct interaction with the new ‘Questions & Answers’ function.
The cornerstone of Outdooractive is its maps and the goal is to continue to develop all their associated services and optimize them with new applications. The quality of the routes suggested by Outdooractive’s route planner depends on how up-to-date the data is for both the existing trail network and the Outdooractive Routing Service. For all Pro and Pro+ users, especially in the D-A-CH region, the official data of surveying authorities is available. The Outdooractive route planner can also generate route suggestions using the data of OpenStreetMap (OSM).
