The Bluetooth Hubodometer is a precision tool to ensure an accurate logbook for trailer or caravan maintenance.
The battery life is between 4 years and seven years. Sleep mode engaged at zero motion.
Please check the hole size in the wheel. The outside diameter of the Bluetooth hubodometer is 95mm.
A single Bluetooth hubodometer is a two-piece aluminium device that has moving parts to measure and record distance.
This two-piece device allows the Bluetooth hubodometer to be easily removed to check bearings.
Selecting the correct hubodometer is as simple as choosing the outer bearing number from the list below.
Special Note: a Bluetooth hubodometer measures the circumference of new tyre size. Worn and older tyres will vary a little to the actual distance covered.

How to Program your Hubodometer
An app is required to program your Bluetooth Hubodometer. WGCVS Hub Odometer from your app store (MaDao).
Program the hubodometer revolutions per kilometre for the tyre size available from the above links.
The how to program the hubodometer sheet is available for download and printing by clicking this – link.
The app allows you to set and reset your hubodometer. It does not record kilometres.
We recommend using a piece of wood and a hammer to install Hubodometer. The timber should cover the entire device, so the hammer load is even on all points when tapping it into position.
Note: It is essential Locktite is applied when hubodometers are inserted into hubs to help prevent them from becoming dislodged during transit. Some hub bosses can vary by as much 0.2mm. This variation in some manufacturers hub sizes can cause a loose-fitting bearing buddy. We recommend a medium strength locking compound on all bearing buddies and Hubodometers.
The Loctite applied on the fitment surfaces will help prevent the Hubodometer from dislodgement from branches and rocks in extreme offroad conditions.
A good start for your logbook would be
