Plan your bicycle trip with the Velocity GPS navigation system

Now that we think of it, it seems rather unfair that the advancements in the field of navigation systems have long been confined to cars, while their less endowed vehicular kin - such as bicycles, for instance - have been subjected to scant attention. Well, the Velocity Cycle Route Guide is a totally cool design concept that has been drawn up by designer Ross Kemp, and exclusively for the bicycle.

Ths futuristic-looking gadget can be hooked to your computer to download the desired route maps and then clamped to the bike's handlebar. And that just about ends your intervention. As you ride along, the Velocity GPS system lets you know the directions you need - by voice as well as by the map displayed on its screen. Taking into account that biking is almost always associated with sports or fitness, the gadget also gives you performance data that you can analyse on the PC. Personally, not only do I think that this is the most good-looking navigation system that I have seen, but I also see several bicycle enthusiasts queuing up to get one, if and when this product gets on the shelves.
