What a fab invention. If it works as well as it seems it should then it would make exporting on a bike a whole lot easier. Not sure if you could use it on off road trails but a future adaption for this would interest me..

They claim in the video that it can be used for navigation off road as well!

be a great if it is , but I got the impression from the vid it's more cycle trails rather than hacking it down the side of a mountain Undecided. Might be able to mount it to the top of the stem rather than in front for off road as it's in the same shape as the bars with stem to stop it getting mashed on crashing Undecided

No idea why you would want one, looks truly awful.

Looks like it might work in the US where every turn is either left or right, but how the hell would it deal with a roundabout??!!  Undecided

The pic's on site show it mounted to stem & flat bars, though MTB stems are prolly too short for it the idea's certainly a goodun.

As for the roundabout thing, generally you're either going straight, left or right on them, surely it's able to indicate the difference between a hard left and a kinda straight'ish on left, blurb says it can notify of U turns after all. GPS should usually be smart enough to flash urgently just before the exit you need.

I think this is a crackin idea personally.

Good idea for road use but think it'll fall short on many fronts when used off road.... I couldn't thing of anything more annoying than having a flashing light on my bars trying to figure out which way I'm pointing when cycling thro twisty singletrack.
