    Can't wait to try this thing out. I have ridden with the old sportvue units (MC1 & MC2). I am very excited to see how much better this one is and whether or not it lives up to the hype!!!

    Hey MC, can't wait to see a write up from a "real" user. I've seen the ads and looked at the website and it looks good. I have a Sena that I rarely use the camera on but wanted to have the option without having to mount something else (ie, GoPro). The only thing I wish I had is the heads up navigation. As much as I love to ride (or take a drive sometimes) the possibility of getting "lost" almost paralyzes me so GPS was a God-send for me. I have used my phone in a tank bag on my Busa and considered a stem mount for my phone. It's not ideal, but it gets me where I need to go. Anyway, please post your opinions.

    Well, here is a short note about it. For context, understand that I used to run the SportVue units; I liked them, but it was like a big banana stuck to your helmet. It was in your peripheral view, but it blocked vision as it was a closed unit. The SportVue displayed speed, tac and gear (based on programmed wheel size, learned shift patterns and an ECU tap).

    The Nuviz unit is in a word: fantastic. That said, here are a few pluses and minuses:

    Plus:
    Truly peripheral and is not distracting.
    Switches easily between modes/functions with thumb switch.
    Rides can be programmed for routes from cell phone.
    GPS is embedded in Nuviz, similar to Apple maps with moving map and voice directions.
    Can be Bluetooth paired with headsets (such as SENA, etc.).
    Camera for stills and video (lens is adjustable).

    Minus:
    Must be used with phone app for full functionality.
    When paired with a Bluetooth headset, your phone must be paired to the unit, so you lose some functions of the headset.
    Does not display fuel, even a programmed range like the Zumo's have would be awesome.
    Thumbswitch is another switch to add to your handlebars.
    Nuviz unit attaches to the side of your helmet near the front, so the weight/drag is noticeable.

    More later.
