    Of course we haven't seen them, we're not geeks.

    Speaking of which, how did you find them? Did you just google goggle ? :D

    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 :D

    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 :D

    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. :D

    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.

    Oooooohhhhh!!!!!!! Tell me more about the GPS functionality!!!!!
    What is it using for base maps? To what level of detail? Can you upload modified img type map files? Able to log waypoints? Routing? Does it have a active track log that can hold more than 500 points?

    More... more.. more... :clap

    From the TrailTech Voyager web page http://trailtech.net/voyager.html:

    Voyager Moto-GPS
    IMPORTANT: Allocation Status. Expect at least a 2 week delay on Voyager orders.


    So, any chance of getting early access to the user manual??? I looked on the 'Instructions' page and didn't find anything about the Voyager yet.

    Yes. What software does it use, and does it play well with a .GPX file?

    You can have up to 200 waypoints.
    You can also have 1 track with 72,500 points (or up to 300 tracks with 241 points, or some hybrid.)<o:p></o:p>
    You can also have 1 route with 72,500 points (or up to 300 routes with 241 points, or some hybrid.)<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>Route and track memory are independent (e.g. you can have up to 72,500+72,500=145,000 points total if track and route memory are both full.)<o:p></o:p>

    Nice keep giving us updates. More info on the unit would be nice. What program to you use to get tracks on it? Do you just copy them to the mSD card?

    No software is needed. Simply copy the GPX files to a MicroSD card using your PC, and then import them into Voyager. You can also swap MicroSD cards between Voyager units.
