    HammerHead

    Really cool, too bad we'll have to wait until next june to try one:
    Bike Navigation. That just works.

    Color me skeptical.

    Because Hammerhead uses your smartphone’s GPS system, you get a more accurate GPS reading than you would with most standalone GPS units. Don't stand around waiting to acquire satellites -- go ride. Our app pre-loads route information. Venture into the unknown without needing cell service to navigate.


    So you tuck your phone into a pack, and because the smartphone GPS is "superior" to standalone GPSes mounted with a better view of the sky with a better antenna, you get more accurate GPS readings?

    ahahah I hadn't considered that, but maybe they're assuming you mount your phone on the helmet for maximun reception
