Oh puck

Is there a periodic ( monthly, quarterly, etc) subscription fee to keep the service past the cost of the hardware?

Just spoke to Doug from Oh Puck! And he confirmed that there are NO subscription fees. Just keep it charged! I think I'm gonna contribute/order one.

Why not just borrow the $16k from mom and get the thing on the market if it works ?

Good idea. But what happens when the rider has the phone in a pocket and falls off during crash, landing more than 4ft away from the puck? Same for a tankbag that get ripped off during crash?

A stronger antenna is one of the up grades to be worked on so it appears the 4' issue is being addressed.

Hope that KS is a success and he gets to give a go, best of luck to him.
