Must admit, despite the delays, I didn't think they were going to do a runner - lots of updates were provided with all the prototypes shown being tested etc. Shots of them at the factories in China and all the rest of it.

If it was going to sink without trace you'd expect nothing after the first couple of months.

I don't have the patience for the kickstarters but I'm glad you guys put in for it! laugh

Used it again today, went to a little village (Pangbourne) with my brother. We've been before but I'd never have remember the way, the little Beeline go us there without fuss. Once on the way back it struggled to reroute us but it go there eventually. I'm really chuffed with it, it goes nice next to my XSR's clocks too

That does look really nice - it'd be perfect if you could invert your clocks to dark/light

I wonder if someone could just write an add on to google maps that does something similar, then you could do the same on your phone.

Yep, it'd be pretty straight-forward too as Google provide an API for turn-by-turn.

You can but it looked a right faff tbh. I don't fancy taking a knife to my clocks lol.

I know everyone is different but that's the big plus for me, my phone stays in my pocket, out of the elements and harms way. If I were going to use a phone I'd rather have all the info that they can offer I think.

That looks factory. But god, how on earth can you live without removing the protective film?

I'd literally tested it up the road and back from my dads, took the film of now! It'd drive me mad too if I didn't. biggrin
