Nu kid on the block (NuViz)

(1/1)

fxk:
Well, there's a new kid on the block for M/C GPS, comm, music, etc.


NuViz


At $699, priced right there as a Zumo 590/595.  First units ship in July (allegedly)


I surely won't be the first to jump - and info looks a little slim right now, but the idea of a HUD (Head Up Display) right out there in front of me, and no connection whatsoever to the bike, makes me want to know more.  As everything is new, the camera and its software, the music player, the GPS, and of course, the optics, there's going to be a lot to debug and optimize.  Not that the M/C GPS speciality units available now are all that good, nor have they advanced much in the past 10 years, but there are minimal functions NuViz will have to get correct right out of the box (i.e., Tracks, Routing, and something that is not so cartoonish as what we've been fed for so long, and PLEASE don't tell me the "up ahead" gas station is behind me...).


Maybe one of you Lotto winners out there could get one and do a thorough writeup on it.  Maybe we'll have to wait for web Bike World.

Hmmmm

Since an android or Apple device is needed, does that also mean that internet access must be available at the same time?  Lots of time I am riding in areas where I don't have cell service, let alone internet.  Interesting.
