Navigation devices are probably some of the most important inventions of our time. No matter what shape they take, from smartphone apps to dedicated hardware, these gizmos are presently so much a part of our lives that it's hard to imagine going on trips, be it in cars or on motorcycles, without them.
Since most of us now own a smartphone, that's the tool most of us use for our daily travels, be it in a direct mode or using some sort of mirroring. But there still are dedicated navigation device makers in the world, and they seem to still be rolling out new devices.

Beeline is one such company. The group has dedicated its work to coming up with navigation solutions for bikes and motorcycles – something that's still needed in this segment, considering the limitations posed by using a smartphone to get navigation instructions while riding.

Beeline presently sells something called the Moto and Moto II solutions, with the latter coming into the world earlier this year. They are Beeline branded, naturally, but there are instances when the company works with established bike makers to create special edition versions of the solution.

It first did that back in 2021 with British Triumph for the Moto device, and this week we were informed bikers will now get a Triumph-branded Beeline device of the Moto II variety.

Officially titled Triumph Beeline Moto II special edition, the gadget was first and foremost imagined as an accessory for the Bonneville range, but it could technically be used for pretty much all Triumph motorcycles.

At its core the hardware stays the same as in Beeline configuration. It comes with a 1.45-inch screen, larger than on the previous version, that provides turn-by-turn navigation, and a 600 mAh battery that should hold enough juice to last for 14 hours. A USB-C charging cable is provided to put electricity back in when the battery is depleted.

The screen is protected by a machined case in an IP67 waterproof and shockproof build. There is Triumph branding laser etched on the case, and the gadget can be installed on bikes by using one of several mounting options available. To operate it all the rider needs to do is touch the glove-friendly buttons installed on the thing.

The Triumph Beeline Moto II needs an Android or iOS phone to work, but also a dedicated, free app called Beeline. Once set up, the Moto II will allow the rider access to turn-by-turn navigation, a mini-map feature, and junction instructions. There is even the possibility to share routes with other riders.

Triumph says the new device will become available for purchase later this month. Pricing was set at £199 for the UK market, which would be around $255 for Americans.
