Mechanically it looks a lot like my Vapor digital speedo on my KLR.

Tramontana 10-22-2010 07:40 AM

Looks interesting...
 
...but if speed and distance are 100% GPS based, will it be reliable enough? I've seen my GPS make up some pretty absurd "presumptions" regarding distance, when it has lost perfect signal in trees and canyons.

Cheers! :freaky

Since it looks so much like the Other Trail Tech offerings, I suspect it'll be a mix of mechanical inputs and digital. So you use their speedo kit to adapt whatever input you may have (mechanical off the wheel, or digital off the CS sprocket/whatever) to the device to get speed.

Looks like it Might be a nice package ~ though I hope it can run off bike power (it mentions Li-Ion batteries).

probably battery backup like the Vapor, with auto-switch to internal power if external power disconnected.

Hope its more reliable than some of there other products...

Looks cool..

Crap, I just picked up the new Striker because it has a voltmeter and reads mileage in 100ths for when the roadbook rides come along.

Maybe I'll make a dual housing to mount both. I hear this a lot, but I can't find the price for it or the expected delivery.

Are they starting a GPX database too? http://www.ohvtrails.net/

cool!!!

I don't see the need for people that have a good GPS already. With my AceWell and my Zumo 550 I'm pretty happy. Plus that display looks to be real small for GPS usage.

Hayduke 10-22-2010 08:53 AM

This looks sweet! Can't wait to see it in person and see what all the features are.

Adjustable ODO? numeric compass headings?

theantipaul 10-22-2010 08:57 AM

The Voyager looks quite a bit bigger of a form factor then the Vapor et al. I'll bet the display ends up being about the size of the Garmin Oregons, what Trail Tech needs to come out with is a heads up display for your goggles!

merickk 10-22-2010 09:15 AM

Greeeat just what I didn't need to know..something else I'm gonna have to spend money on :rofl

I use the vapor on my XRL and love it. Can only think that with a integrated GPS it'd be a must have.

The speed and the distance are gathered through a wheel sensor cable like Vapor and Vector as well as the GPS speed. We highly recommend the wheel sensor for accurate speed and odometer (distance).

Voyager connects to DC or AC vehicle power and has a lithium ion battery for back up. Voyager also has a engine temperature sensor, the data is recorded with the GPS track data. We have added an ignition sensor for smart data logging.

The unit is a little larger than Vapor and Vector. The screen is a WQVGA LCD with incredible resolution, contrast and visibility in direct sunlight.

Another interesting feature is the open source trail sharing. Through http://ohvtrails.net/ a rider can download trails to Voyager via the SDmicro card.

The introductory price is $279.95 for the complete kit, model specific. Voyager starts shipping the week of 11/1/10. The website (http://trailtech.net/voyager.html) should have more information later today. We are taking pre-sale orders now.

Heads-up goggle display. I like it!
