- Apple App – Search WG-HUBO AUS
- Andriod – Search Texcan – AUS
Once installed for the first time, Hubodometer can be re-programmed should the tyres be changed or zeroed on the next service event.
The battery life is between 4 years and seven years. Sleep mode is engaged at zero motion.
Please check the hole size in the wheel. The outside diameter of the Bluetooth Hubodometer is 95mm for 2t and 73mm for Slimline.
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 Bluetooth Hubodometer is as simple as choosing the outer bearing number from the list below.

Hubodometer for the LM and SL sizes are in R&D. We expect to be able to release these version in 180 days.
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.
Select your tyre size for configuration.
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 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 the Bluetooth Hubodometer base. 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 Loctite is applied when hub-odometers are inserted into hubs to help prevent them from becoming dislodged during transit or stolen.
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 Bluetooth Hubodometers.
Prevent the Bluetooth Hubodometer from dislodgement apply Loctite to machined surfaces.
A good start for your logbook caravan servicing would be
- 500 kilometres after taking delivery.
- 5000-kilometres on the highway or 1000 kilometres off-road.
Bluetooth Hubodometer installed on caravans, and other rigs trigger a service level for manufacturers. 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.
- Complete Bearing check.
- Tyres wear check.
- Electric brakes and disc pads check.
- U-Bolt check.
- Shackle bolts, bushes and shackle plates check.
- Gas lines.
- Coupling tightness.
- Wheel nuts for tightness.
2t Hubodoemters use a 2 piece attachment as shown above and in the main image.
The slimline model in the right-hand side image has three components. They are
- The main housing is 93mm in diameter. This means it will not fit through a standard wheel rim.
- The last housing has a 73mm diameter that allows the wheel rim to be removed by.
- Releasing the bottom grub screw allows the 93mm housing to be removed thus allowing the rim to pass over the 73mm diameter inner housing.
- The gap between the threads on the housing allows the grub screw to lock thus preventing thread damage.
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.
