How to use Motes

Start by going to and choose your trip. Each route consists of several points, also called 'Motes', each containing a narrative of exactly where you are. Then you can see the trip on a map and get directions to the nearest point/starting point. It is necessary to have Bluetooth turned on for the map function.

When you get close enough to the next point on the trip, you can unlock it by holding your finger over it for a few seconds. Now you can access a story in the form of audio, video, pictures and/or text describing the individual place on the route. Then, using the map, you are guided to the next 'Mote', taking you through the whole tour and all the discoveries and experiences it entails.
