You gotta be kidding me.

Just what I need.

Something else to distract me while I am driving. For $1500.00 at that.
I am glad that they at least haven't legislated me buying and using one as a condition of riding my motorcycles.

Don't know...a heads-up speedo and a 180 degree rear-view without taking your eyes off the road doesn't seem like a bad thing. However, $1,500 is a bit steep. If the price comes down, I might go for one.

Although, I couldn't care less about streaming music or phone, though. The turn-by-turn GPS is a nice feature too.
