Recon Heads Up Display Devices - Data and Privacy

Last Updated: May 29, 2015 09:19AM PDT
Recon’s heads up display devices - Snow™ and Jet™ - present real-time data to users during their fitness activities (each of which is called a “trip”) and record and transfer the data to the user’s account on the Engage™ service. This article describes how Recon’s heads up display devices collect and use data.
 
 
Data Collected
 
Recon’s heads up display devices can collect the following kinds of data:
   
     ●     Location (Longitude, Latitude, Bearing)
     ●     Speed
     ●     Temperature
     ●     Jumps 1
          ○     Airtime
          ○     Height
          ○     Distance
          ○     Drop
     ●     Altitude
          ○     GPS Altitude
          ○     Barometer Pressure
     ●     Sensor Data 2
​          ○     Heart Rate
          ○     Speed
          ○     Cadence
          ○     Power


1 Only on Snow™ devices
2 Only on Jet™ devices
 
Recon’s heads up display devices also collect additional data (e.g. date, time, firmware version and trip type) to assist data processing by the Engage™ service.
 
 
When data is collected
 
A Recon heads up display device begins collecting data as soon as the device receives a GPS fix. When the user selects to start/pause/end a trip, the time is logged and when the data is later processed by the Engage™ service all data outside the start and end times of the trip is ignored.
 
 
How data is stored
 
Recon’s heads up display devices store collected data, in a proprietary binary format, on internal storage in the “/ReconApps/TripData/” directory.
 
 
How data is transferred/processed
 
A Recon’s heads up display device transfers collected data and extrapolated metrics (e.g. “pace” or “calories burned”) to the Engage™ service when the device is connected to the Engage™ service through either Recon’s Uplink™ software installed on a personal computer or an Engage™ application installed on a mobile device.
 
 
User control
 
Recon’s heads up display devices automatically record data and store the data in the storage memory of the device. A user can manually delete the trip data from a device by navigating to the “/ReconApps/TripData/” directory and deleting the contents.
 
If a user does not want data to be transferred from a heads up display device to the Engage™ service, then the user can either not connect the device to the Engage™ service or manually delete the data from the device before connecting the device to the Engage™ service.
 
Once a user transfers data from a heads up display device to the Engage™ service, the user can manage the data using the user’s account and privacy settings on the Engage™ service. (Please see the Engage™ Service - Data and Privacy article for more information.)
 
 
Security
 
The Jet™ device contains a “Passcode Lock” functionality that may be used to disable the device’s USB connection and disable usage of the heads up display. If the “Passcode Lock” functionality is enabled on a Jet™ device, the USB connection will not operate unless the passcode is entered.
 
The Snow™ device does not have a “Passcode Lock” functionality.
