    What’s the ETA on turn-by-turn over Bluetooth?

    Get this and I will happily throw my Zumo through a window.

    I love not having to constantly look at the GPS.

    Will the billet protector have the same attachment points as the one for the Voyager? Will I be able to mount it where the factory mount point is, in front of my head clamp on my KTM? Thanks in advance for your response and keeping us all updated.

    No, as we use AMP spacing for RAM mount compatibility. There are 4 mounting bolts instead of the Standard Voyagers 2. The protector sandwiches between the Voyager Pro dock and whatever 4 bolt AMP spec mount you choose to use.

    Looks like I over-tightened the retention hex screw with the supplied hex key.... and stripped it... so now the voyager pro is stuck in the mount.

    Looks like I'll have to drill it out!

    turn by turn has been very carefully avoided in conversation so far .... :-(

    We are working on it and should be a firmware release in the near future. We are testing it to make sure it is solid and what we want. I have no firm date for you at this time.

    That’s great to hear.

    A question for you: last year, I bought the Griptwister tour/tracks for circumnavigating the Olympics.

    The tour depends on being able to see both the track and associates waypoints.


    Because the Garmin Zumo (my GPS) requires you to convert a track into a route it loses the waypoints (at least that’s how I remember it). I had a hell of a time navigating that route and depended on my friend who was running an old Garmin 60csx.

    Does your GPS allow you to follow a track (without converting it to a route) and will waypoints display on the screen while following the track?

    Ps. I could live without it, but the weather functionality on my Zumo has saved me a
    Few times or at least helped me prepare in advance for some serious storms. Hint hint

    Using mine on the TT Rally I found that the heads-up perspective view is great but the arrow and track lines are too small/thin. It would be great if we had an option to configure that so it can look bigger/thicker to see it better while riding.

    I would also be a happy beta tester for you guys.

    The Voyager pro imports GPX files and should retain the route and waypoints. I have never seen it not retain the waypoints. If you want to send us the file we can load it and look at it.

    This is feedback we have heard before and working on options for enhanced viability. If you turn off topo lines and hillshading the map will be super simple (only shows roads and routes) and easy to read.

    Is there a beta program or way I could get in on testing firmware and providing feedback?

    And another question is, are tracks routeable? Can I follow a track on the device without converting it to a route (like the Zumo forces you to do)?

    I'm considering getting a Voyager Pro for my Husky 701 and I'd like to remove the stock ( very basic ) speedo. Will I have to install a magnet setup like on the older trail tech units to get wheel speed or will I be able to plug the stock wheel sensor in somehow?

    Your going to need the TT sensor as our ABS speedo sensor doesn't put out usable pulse... I have spent a lot of time tryi gnto use the ABS speedo sensor signal for the PCV as well with no success either.

    Does this unit not have a GPS-based speedo?
