Bicycle riders haven’t had it as easy as drivers in cars and trucks with their cushy GPS systems. When you’re on two wheels instead of four, you either have to map out the route before you hit the road or you have to make numerous stops along the way to check your phone to see if you’re still on course. Things just got a lot easier for the two-wheeling brotherhood.
The Hammerhead Bike Navigator gives bike riders a sleek, unobtrusive GPS system of their very own that links with the mapping software on their phone. Just use your smartphone to find a route you want to ride, and then let Hammerhead do the rest as it uses a simple sequence of lights to keep you headed in the right direction.
With a single charge powering it for over twenty hours, Hammerhead can map your course, regardless of whether you’re on paved streets or riding off-road. You can even compete with others or just use the system to locate and meet-up with friends that are out riding at the same time. Hammerhead even has a built-in headlight to help make sure you’re seen when riding at night.
The navigator is available for $85, and the brains behind it also have plans to extend its capabilities so that it will also work with motorcycles in the future. Motorcyclists that want to stay in the loop regarding the progress of Hammerhead for motorcycles can stay in touch by following the Hammerhead Navigation Facebook page.
