What is knowmoto?

knowmoto is a unique social location app that helps connects you and your car/truck/motorcycle with enthusiasts.


Never miss another cruise-in! Get LIVE location alerts for your favorite makes and models near you on a map!  These are static check ins where the vehicle owner goes ‘Live’ with a bluetooth beacon (not a GPS that follows movement).


Earn ‘Likes’ on posted pictures of your ride from any location or event in the app. Share these posts on other social media to gain exposure.

Events coordinators, clubs and even manufacturers can use this system to award knowmoto vehicles with prizes, goodies and sponsorships.


Trophies are awarded by other users who are physically present at the vehicle during a live check in at an event or any other location.  Users must be within 10 feet of the ride that is sporting the knowmoto beacon to award a trophy.  This keeps the knowmoto trophy system fair and accurate.  

Events coordinators, clubs and even manufacturers can use this system to award knowmoto vehicles with prizes, goodies and sponsorships.


Share details of your ride. What’s in your garage? Give other enthusiasts a peek – share pics and mods with the knowmoto community near and far!


Search connects everything together.  Search for users, makes, models, modifications, locations and more using the knowmoto app. Are you looking for a certain color ride, exhaust, wheel?  Use the app to find it all and even locate them live.

Not Just Local

Can’t attend as an example the SEMA show in Las Vegas?  Just set your location in the knowmoto app to Las Vegas and get a ‘Live’ alert for any make and model you are following that checks in there!


Get the App & join the knowmoto community and socialize your ride!

How does it work?

The knowmoto app communicates with our proximity beacon that is placed in or on a vehicle that is at a show or event. This combination allows the knowmoto app to confirm that the vehicle and beacon are together. Other knowmoto app users will then be able to locate and interact with the vehicle.

What does it cost?

The knowmoto app is free to use.  Users that wish to add vehicles and be ‘Live’ on knowmoto are required to purchase a beacon.  See more here.
