    Based upon my past experience with Garmin products () it would have to be at least eleventy-seven times better than the GoPro before I'd even give it a look. Also, the addition of GPS info to video I take is so far down on my wants and needs list that it's not worth any additional cost. Yeah, mine is probably a minority view.

    Ditto. If the pattern holds, reasonable hardware, bizarrely bad software and interface.

    It's a fabulous camera but you have to download the videos with Basecamp.

    If you are not continuously learning, you are slowly getting bored.

    This has the potential to sell even more than the nuvifone.

    GoPro:)

    My GoPro has been great, well established unit 2nd edition. I cannot complain one bit about its quality and rugged uses I've put it thru. I find any comp out there has one giant leap to catch up! My GoPro battery could be better, with added run time being considered, but it charges quite rapidly off my GSA battery as I ride. Randy
