I agree. I spend a TON of hours researching trails and making tracks on the GPS. I don't think that part would ever go away. We are just using different tools now that weren't available back then. I used to use excel spreadsheets similar to the roadbooks for street rides. Those days were fun. But they are long gone and the way I do it now is just as fun.

cyber i agree completely,,, i think the only reason they still use roadbooks in the rallies is for the time honored tradition, if that makes sense. i mean they could just hand out memory cards at the start for regular ol gps and do away with all the bulky "stuff" thats piled on the front of the bike, but thats not rally trdition with navigation excellence

if i had a need for a roadbook and a desire to use it i would be all over this thing,,, its awesome.
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=942467


but as it is now i dont even need tracks to follow, all i want and use is a blue arrow overlaid on a map, i just want to see where i am in real time and make my own turns as i feel like it. thats why a cheap garmin nuvi with topo maps loaded works perfectly for me.

Obviously u don't know what you're talking about since you haven't been following international Rallies . Go on Dakar site and read rules and regulations to understand more.

All of that information that he was explaining about the roadbook can be packaged into a gps and with bluetooth can be transmitted on the fly to your helmet with alerts the same way speed cam traps are set up
Wow in that case you should sign up to be a Dakar organizer ...

I don't follow rallies so maybe I'm missing something
You are definitely missing a lot of infos.

Welcome to the 21st century boys.
That's not nice ... C'mon now!! When u talk like that u make me feel you are of them

Something that stood out about what he said was that you want to ingrain the roadbook into your head so you don't have to be looking down at it so much. Yeah. With a GPS and alerts you wouldn't have to look down at it much, if at all.
Not when u ride 15 days straight of rally (about 5500 miles). If u can memorize that much infos then there's no need for a Rd-book.
U make everything sound so easy or easy said then done.

havent ben able to find any more info, but scott makes some HUD goggles now, or soon? HUD in your face like that seem a little distracting though, but i havent tried it yet and i imagine like anything else it becomes second nature.

The link to the Vendors forum and the electronic roadbook/trip master device you posted is quite interesting.It's unfortunate that the device is so damn expensive. Looks like most of the Rallye specific technology has been bundled in to a tidy package. The big screen and the ability to split screen multiple different parameters/maps would be way useful. Its pretty much a laptop computer (or tablet) with built in dampening protection strapped to a bike. I need to investigate deeper.

Did anyone notice the strange nature of the dialogue between the vendor and the people posting questions? It appears that the vendor has a bunch of fake inmates (meaning himself) posting product specific information? Check it out, just weird.

My son's looking for a bigger bike. His 50 is too small for him and after riding Aaron's son's ttr90 the other day I realized I'm going to have to pony up soon.

DK, awesome man!!

pfd, yeah kinda wierd dialog, i chocked it up to language barrier but who knows..

considering what it does and what it replaces (gps,roadbook,ICO,ODO, ect.ect.) its not that expensive and its a lot lighter and more compact.

it is cool as hell though. with garmin switching over to android platform at least on one of the models, monterra?, we might see some cool things in the app store popping up for android devices.

having said that i still really like the EARL device,,
