Looks pretty interesting for mountain biking. Seems to be the must have item in the snowboard world

Cheers

That would be pretty cool. Obviously some of the features wont translate over to MTB, but still a very cool toy.

Interesting, I just spent about 20 mins. on their web site. It's actually fairly heavily marketed towards mt. bikers as well. Looks like the desktop interface will download 3D maps (Google Earth?) and project your route over it.

Me wants, but $340.00 is a bit steep right now.

A pox on these websites that don't tell you what they're about. You have to poke around several pages before you even know if it's pants or pizza they're selling.

Calm down Earl. Even I figured it out after a bit !!

BTW I went to school with Max Cannon.

I can see the need for a device like this for training or routing / mapping, but I also hate being a slave to my Cycloputer or GPS. When I am riding somewhere that I normally ride, I go without either of them. When I am riding somewhere new, I enjoy making maps of the tracks and elevation profiles... and to then see what trails we DIDN'T ride so maybe go back if it was good stuff... Turns and Roll Rate? I guess a lot of the Freeride guys would get into that! I guess it is whatever floats your boat - but I am more into the ride itself than the gizmo.
