    Me too!

    I’d love to have this to replace the Navigator VI which has been very disappointing. If I could throw my old iPhone 7+ up on that mount and control some functions with the “wonderwheel” that would be perfect!

    Can I ask why the NAV VI has been disappointing? Just the outdated UI or not functioning well? I just added the VI to my S1000XR and it's a tad clunky and I also have an iPhone 7 sitting in a drawer.

    Because for $1000 it should be much less clunky, much quicker to respond, have more map options such as topo, and many other small but nagging items.

    Being able to have a few different mapping apps on the iPhone seems like it would be a much more convenient and practical solution.

    The Nav VI isn’t “useless” though. It’s a decent device, but it would be a much more practical device if it was closer to $500 or so.

    Feedback from our small group of Android testers has been great. Soon we will be selecting a small group of iOS testers as the iOS app is almost complete.

    We would like to announce that we've launched a WunderLINQ Kickstarter campaign. We've decided to go this route initially to help gauge demand and to help get the word out about the product. We would love your help spreading the word online and to your riding buddies!

    Please help us spread the word by following, liking, retweeting or whatever they're calling it today :) Below is a list of our Social Media accounts.

    Is Speed one of the parameters that can be tracked?

    Just as an FYI: your timeline shows Nov 2017 for shipping ... Years are switching back from 18 to 17 on the timeline view.

    I like your approach and would buy it if I didn't already have a Nav VI. A suggestion: I'd check with the folks at Hondo Garage whether they want to work with you to make their Perfect Squeeze work with your base mount ... that would give you a pretty nice base to mount pretty much any phone, not in the most convenient, but probably in one of the most secure and flexible ways.

    Hi cug,

    Thanks for the heads up about the timeline, I've corrected it!

    How does the interface interact when you receive a phone call or text on your phone? Does the normal Bluetooth functions (media player, calls, Google maps, etc) work as normal when mounted in your cradle and in use on the bike?

    Sure is... this is just a small subset of the data collected but I can already see my radiator fan works as expected ;)
