I want one right now but if it takes 1% of my concentration away from where I am going with that rear camera then I will load it in to a Canon and fire it in to the sea

I feel the same way about it being a distraction.
I'm sure that some studies have shown that using a handsfree is just as dangerous as using the phone itself while driving, so I think I'll stick to answering the phone when I get off the bike. Smile


...it does look cool though.  Cool

Forgot to mention, it could be handy for couriers.  left thumb up

Yeah my thoughts exactly, I have enough on looking out for cars coming in all kinds of directions.

Who needs to know what's behind them?! Perhaps if you're leading a group ride out, but that's a niche market! Fact is most motorcyclists are going quicker than the majority (if not all) of traffic, so it makes no difference what's behind them (in my opinion).

I think if they got rid of the camera and just had the transparent display for gps and HUD it would be great!
