The Bluetooth Hubodometer is a precision tool to ensure an accurate kilometre logbook for trailer or caravan maintenance.
A kilometre log book is the preferred option over a time-based log book.
The battery life of the Bluetooth hubodometer is between 4 years and seven years. Sleep mode engages at zero motion resulting in battery savings.
Please check the hole size in the wheel. The outside diameter of the Bluetooth hubodometer is 95mm.
Alternatively, the Bluetooth hubodometer fits into your own housing.

How to Program your Bluetooth hubodometer
An app is required to program your Bluetooth Hubodometer. WGCVS Hub Odometer from your app store (MaDao).
Program the Bluetooth hubodometer revolutions per kilometre for the tyre size available from the above links.
The how to program the Bluetooth hubodometer sheet is available for download and printing by clicking this – link.
The app allows you to set and reset your Bluetooth hubodometer. The app does not record kilometres.
On the back of the Bluetooth hubodometer is a 1/2″ UNF Stud and nut. This stud is removed when used with a hub attachment.
A good start for your logbook caravan servicing would be
- 500 kilometres after taking delivery.
- 5000 kilometres highway or 1000kg offroad.
Bluetooth hubodometers installed on caravans, and other rigs trigger a service level for manufacturers by measuring kilometres traveller. Warranty issues are easier to understand when accurate kilometre reads are available.
The manufacturer’s checklist will incorporate some of the items below. However, this same list is a good start for the DIY brigade, with older rigs.
- Check Chassis for cracks.
- Bearing check.
- Tyres wear check.
- Electric brakes and/or disc pads check.
- U-Bolt check.
- Shackle bolts, bushes and shackle plates check.
- Gas lines.
- Coupling tightness.
- Wheel nuts for tightness.
Did you know
Car tyres are tuned to your car speedo when new. Tyres have a specific circumference for each tyre.
Tyre wear as little as 10mm will drastically lower the actual speed, and the distance you have travelled, however, your gearbox rotations governs the speedo.
An example is, if you are driving at 105 kilometres per hour, your actual speed will be 100 kilometres per hour on used tyres.
To confirm your actual speed, we recommend using the GPS in your mobile phone for a more accurate reading.
Probably a good explanation of why Police have let me go after my speedo said 105 kph. The speedo is often wrong unless the car tyres are new.
