I'd like to see pictures of the GPS function and the maps zoomed in and out for resolution.
The contrast looks good.

After you make the housing for it, you may be able to sell quite a few if you have it patterned out.

Might be awhile before they are available elsewhere.

It is suppose to have an micro sd-card slot.
From what I've read you just copy the gpx files to the sd-card and insert it in and load the gpx tracks.


I wish some one would post some more picture with it in gps mode showing the maps and map details with it zoomed in.

I'm really not sure how most gps are loaded. But I called and was told by one of the AMA people that they can't load to my sd card.. which hold the mini sd..


I'll take some photo's tonight. I'm not sure really sure how to use it yet havent really messed with it much. The few tracks I've loaded are a bit of a ways away and I'm not sure what i should see zoomed in.. All looks gray to me. but it shows a lil car

Tell the AMA people you want the tracks in gpx format.
If they send them in Garmin gdb format thats ok too, as its easy to convert them to gpx format with gpsbabel or gpsvisulizer. If you need help just ask I'll be glad to convert them if need for you.

I would assume that from there you would just copy them the sd-card and insert the card and theres an option on it somewhere to load data. Unless it does it automatically.

While you are in Vegas, I would love to hook up and see this unit first hand.
And say hi and meet you too. *grin*

PM me if you are interested.

Interested in this new offering as I was about to order a Vaypor. A question for Trail Tech , when in GPS mode is that all you can see , none of the other info like speed, temp ,ect.? Maybe I'm missing something but if one already had a gps on the bars how would this be better ?

Wow, I am glad I saw this as I am in the market for a TT speedo AND a GPS. I think this fits the bill. $290 for all those features?! That is pretty respectable to me. But the old adage of somehtng that does somemany things, It can not do ONE thing very well!


I'd like to hear some real-world reviews for it. I did read a few but they sounds like they were writen by a TT manager!!

Well here's my point of view. I'm also a complete noob to GPS and found the unit very easy to use.

The guys @ trail tech are awesome!!!!! they stayed up late Wednesday to work out a few things and Emailed me an update for the unit.

It got me from Palmdale to Vegas with out a hitch.

Speedo perfect , tracking amazing . I ran the whole thing never looking at the roll chart. I just had my riding partner keeping track in case of failure and to point out the hard ways. I set the two engine temp points. Only saw one come on when I had the bike sitting at ide. (set at 120) just to see if it worked. There are tons of different settings those were just the two that I set.

Things I would like to see fixed.. Which im sure would be and easy program rewite.

Speed in the corner while on the map screen. Or to stay on speedo screen where all the info is and have a turn pop up.
On like the la to Vegas, a distance to finish
Larger font size
it would be great to have the track line bolder and Your travel line even bolder. It's a lil hard to read in the sunlite with dusty goggles and running 85. Be nice if you could just glance down.

This should not put anyone interested off on this unit it though.. It has SO MANY fuctions and its built by guys like us RIDERS. So I'm sure any issue anyone has they will deal with them.

i personal love it and will add a few more on the other bikes I have..
