F.A.Q.

How can we help you?

Use of the stations

Yes, you need to download the "eDock" app available on Android and IOS.
You can also download the app using the QR code on the eDock stations.

Please proceed in the following order of steps:
Adjust the height and angle of the lock manually to secure your frame. Close the lock manually.
Confirm the lock in the mobile app.
A red light confirms that the lock is secure.

A charger with several attachments is connected to each slot. So all you have to do is choose the right tip for your bike or scooter model. We support charging for Bosch, Segway and Xiaomi.
Charging is only triggered when you have locked the lock on your app.

Unlock the lock via the mobile app.
A green light confirms the availability of the slot.

The colour of the LED indicates the status of the slot:
A green light means that the slot is free.
A red light means that the space is occupied.
A blue light means that the slot has been reserved.
An unlit light means that the slot is in maintenance.

Yes, you can come and secure your bike or scooter without using the charging option. The eDock stations are compatible with non-electrified bikes and scooters.

Whether or not a station has a paying status is indicated in the station information on the app.
If a station is paying, the fee will be indicated to you before securing the station. If accepted, you will be asked to enter a credit card payment method to continue using.

The fee will be indicated to you prior to securing. If accepted, you will be asked to enter a credit card payment method to continue the use.
The parking fee is calculated according to the time of securing, regardless of whether you charge your bike/scooter or not.

No, it is not necessary to close the lock manually. If you do, an automatic unlocking system will be triggered after 15 seconds and the lock will be released.

Application features

Thanks to the "Transfer of ownership" feature, you can allow a friend or family member to unlock your bike or scooter for you. Ideal if you cannot collect your bike/scooter yourself or if you want to lend it without having to go to the station.

To do this, go to the parking section "🅿️" in the app menu at the bottom of the screen.
You will see your current location in use. Click on "Transfer of ownership" and then choose the person you want to send the transfer of ownership to.
The person will receive a code that they must enter into the application by clicking on the menu button at the top right and then on "Enter Code". Once the code is entered, the person becomes the owner of the location and can unlock the lock on the eDock.

The "Reserve a spot" feature allows you to secure a spot at an eDock station for a certain period of time (variable depending on the station). Ideal to be sure to find a spot when you arrive at the location!

Go to the application and then to the station you are interested in. Click on a free space and then on "Reserve".
The space you have reserved will have a blue light on top. Only you can lock the lock.

Yes, you need to create a profile on the app to access the eDock stations. Reserving a location requires an identification by email address attached to your account.

From the application, click on "👤" at the bottom right of the screen.
Once on your profile, click on the pencil at the top right.
When you have finished editing your information, click the top right button again "". Your profile has been updated!

To retrieve your trip history, click on "History" in the menu bar. Then press the "Download" button at the top right of the screen.

Once you have chosen the station you want to go to, click on the station from the application and then on "Calculate route". You will be returned to your guidance application.

You can then quickly find your favorite stations by clicking on the heart in the menu bar at the bottom of your screen.

Support

Don't panic! You can still get your bike back even if the station is closed. This just means that you cannot use a new space out of opening hours.

Don't panic! Try confirming the unlocking again on the app while unlocking the lock with your hand.
If the problem persists, contact support.

Rest assured that the locks will remain locked despite the power failure. If the power does not return within a reasonable time and you need to retrieve your bike or scooter, please contact support for manual unlocking.

Contact support from the website or send an email to support@edock.be. Once the user's identity has been verified, the support team will be able to unlock the lock remotely or manually on site.

General questions 

No, some stations are private. The public or private status of a station is indicated in the station information on the application.
It is also possible to display only public stations on the map in the application by using the filter option at the bottom right of the map.

A private station is a station that is only accessible to certain people, for example employees of a company. You will not be able to use this station if you are not on the list of authorised persons.

A self-share space is a space with a bike or scooter available to users.
To retrieve the bike, the lock must be unlocked and then locked to return the bike after use. The bike must be returned to the exact location where you picked it up.
In this case, the LED in the slot is green when a bike is available and red when it is not.
