How often do you use your Navigator V?
« on: June 11, 2015, 03:23:26 pm »
Dear dogs,

I've acquired my Navigator V during January and initially only utilised when undertaking >100km rides.

Interestingly enough I'm now noticing that I'm not even bothering to remove the Nav V from the cradle anymore and as such use it during every trip including the daily commute, given the convenience of being able to make and receive calls (with caller identity) via the GPS by pairing it with my mobile phone and sena whilst also being able to  listen to GPS instructions, music and so forth (although I don't listen to music or make a lot of calls during the commute).

I'm as such quite curious regarding the average use insofar as your Nav V is concerned - do you only utilise it for the longer trips or as a daily "trip buddy"?

Aanvanklik nie gedink ek sal dit so baie gebruik nie, eintlik net gekoop omdat die bike met die cradle uitkom en 'n cradle sonder 'n GPS lyk stupid.

Musiek opgesit en gepaar met foon en Senna. Nou haal dit net af wanneer die bike vir 'n dag of twee staan.
Wanneer ek alleen ry is die musiek aan.

Ek vind dit baie lekker op die lang pad. Ek hou daarvan om te weet hoe ver dit is na die volgende dorp, hoe lank dit gaan neem en al daardie dingetjies wat eintlik nie saak maak nie maar lekker is om te weet.

Die enigste sinvolle gebruik is wanneer ek vreemde paaie ry. Dan kan ek die pad "lees". Hoe lyk die pad, kan ek maar verby gaan of moet ek bietjie terug hang, hoe lank is die draai, hoe lyk die pad anderkant die bult.

Ek is eintlik bietjie bederf met hom en sal seker nie weer sonder een wees nie. 'n Speelding wat in my lewe standaard toerusting geraak het en een van die dae seker 'n noodsaaklikheid sal wees.

Every ride, music, calls, if not using navigation I use it as a big speedometer

Can you use it, the Navigator V in a car or street? (apart from on the bike?)
