Thanks for the additional info

I don't often want 'farkles', but this one has my attention (guess I'll have to learn how to use a GPS finally though, ugh.)

Garridan,

I use the Vector because I use the adjustable odo and thumb switch for roadbook rally use. Is the odo on the voyager adjustable? In 100ths? Any thumb controls available? Also is the Voyager capable of digital compass readouts (CAP heading navigation)? Thanks

Have you seen these?

HUD gps in ski goggles - hopefully the technology will make its way into helmets (but I wouldn't hold my breath for a few years)?

Geek's a SuperGeek. They probably sent him the link so he could get the word out to the rest of us mortals

They were discussing them in a recent technology podcast I listened to.
(I don't recall which one specifically; I listen to a bunch every day).

I did in fact google goggles but I first had to know they existed

Of course lets not be confused with "google goggles" - the original app they created that required you to do some math problems before you could send drunken emails to your ex or your boss... and not to be confused with the NEW "google goggles" which is an augmented reality app that is very cool in that you can point it at something, take a photo, and google goggles will tell you what it is (currently only works on landmarks, works of art, and bottles of wine).

I'll work on the streaming-PUAC-text-scripting app in my spare time. Perfect thing for when you gotta slab it somewhere

sample stream: KYNBANJO: HAYDUKE SUCKS!... MOTOKAT: YES HE DOES.... DYSCO: I CAUGHT 235 BROOKIES IN A DITCH TODAY... KIWIGIRL: HAS ANYONE SEEN SHEARBOY?...

The original release will not have an adjustable odo. The unit does have customizable user screens with a digital compass readout.

All the sensors can be purchased separately and have waterproof connectors allowing the unit to be moved from bike to bike.

I was thinking of putting a vapor on my Husky but with the coming out...... I think I will upgrade. I have a vapor on my smmo and love it and with the mount that Paul makes for it looks super.
