Navigating the Segway-Ninebot App

The Segway-Ninebot app connects your products to your phone, for a variety of great features and improvements. From switching riding modes and changing colored lights, to unlocking units, viewing mileage, and tracking speed and battery levels, the Segway-Ninebot app is invaluable for any Segway-Ninebot owner.

Simple Steps:
1. Download App
2. Create Profile
3. Turn on Segway-Ninebot product to pair via Bluetooth
4. Complete user tutorials, and have fun!

Bluetooth connectivity links your device to your app, with a simple connection to truly enhance your riding experience! As if the Segway-Ninebot technology wasn’t already incredible, this app takes your products to the next level. Once the app is downloaded and the unit is paired to your device, it will require rider tutorials and step-by-step instructions to ensure the rider is confident and knowledgeable to operate their machine.

The Segway-Ninebot app is required for use with many of our products, including the Ninebot GoKart and GoKart PRO, all Ninebot scooters, and the Ninebot S and S+. With new rider tutorials linked to the app, the app is required for proper setup and operation. For example, the Ninebot GoKart and the Ninebot GoKart PRO require using the app to set up a rider mode and learn pedal functions.

The app is free to download on both the Google Play and Apple stores, and we strongly encourage all Segway-Ninebot customers to download it!

Take a Guided Segway Tour: Starting April 30th!

Looking for something fun to do this summer? Great Lakes Segway is here for you! With our Segway and Pedego tours and rentals, GLS offers a variety of ways to enjoy the outdoors this year.

Tours will begin on April 30th, and will typically run until October, as the weather changes. We offer three time slots from Wednesday-Friday, with additional slots on Saturday. Riding times will be posted on GLS’ FareHarbor booking page, with times subject to change depending on the weather.

GLS is bringing tours to some new locations in 2021! With a spot on the Airline Trail, you can rent ebikes and Segway PTs to take on the trail. We have also partnered with parks and recreation departments in West Bloomfield and Davison Township to provide rides in these communities! If you would like to bring our highly-recommended electric tours to your town, please reach out to schedule.

Each rider must complete a 30 minute Segway training session, before the one-hour guided tour, along with wearing a helmet and signing a waiver. Pedego renters will have a 15-minute training session, to get acclimated to riding an electric bike, along with wearing a helmet. Our tours are available for guests 12+, with parent/legal guardians required to ride with any minor.

Tours are designed for groups of 1-6 people, but we are happy to accommodate more if we are able to! Cruise the beautiful lake, explore the downtown, learn about the rich history, and enjoy the breathtaking scenery. The guided tour allows you to experience beautiful Walled Lake, and learn the rich history like the old amusement park!

GLS is so excited to welcome you to a Segway experience and our tours are the perfect way to learn and enjoy them! Please check our FareHarbor page for more details, or call us at (248) 896-2600!

The Benefits of Electric Mobility Products

Electric mobility products have surged in popularity lately, with so many benefits over more traditional machines. Why is that?

At Great Lakes Segway, we want to be both your authorized dealer and an educational resource to understand the benefits of everything we provide.

The top three benefits include cost over time, environmental impact and efficiency: high performance, low maintenance.

Operationally, the financial cost of your electric vehicle will be much lower over time than with something gas-powered. With a simple electric charge, your machine’s batteries will last for years to come, cost only pennies to charge, all without the mess and smell of a gas-powered engine. While you may save some money upfront, you will save time, energy, and money in the long run.

Reducing your carbon footprint and overall emissions is easy with an electric product, as all of our machines are totally electric and gas-free.

For example, our top-selling Ninebot MAX Kickscooter takes six hours for a full charge, lasts for up to 40 miles of range, and can reach a top speed of 18.6 mph.

Electric mobility products are very efficient in terms of high performance, low maintenance and reliability. Let Great Lakes Segway be your guide to finding the right electric solution for you!
