Permission Requirements

The E-14 App requries permissions for various mobile device system features, in order to function correctly:

  • Location: The App initially asks for access to  the "location services (GPS)". This is necessary to enable the App to locate the remote signal emitted from the E-14 Shifter Unit. This requirement stems from the Android-Architecture. Rohloff would like to assure all customers that at no stage, will your physical location be made accessible to the Rohloff AG.
  • Data Storage: The E-14 software needs to be saved somewhere on your mobile device, between downloading form our server and uploading to the E-14 Shifter Unit.
  • Camera: Access to the camera is necessary to scan the E-14 Shifter Unit barcode.
