So I've had this urge to install gps on my bike but i'd like some input during the initial stages of planning.
First off i want this to be simple:
-it has to be audible
-visual turn signals via leds (possibly mounted on the side mirrors or in the stock instrument cluster)
-possibly a character lcd to help with the input of data
I know navi-voice will be the center of the project but i dont know about what front end would be best. Also, what about hardware? mini-itx may be to large, not sure about the nano boards though. How about some of those palm pc's? but this will probably give us problems with the character lcd output.
second... would it be possible to have some of the current navigation front ends send signals to a relay board to turn on the led to signal the upcoming turn? ( i was thinking about 3 leds on each side... three 'on' for 500m, two 'on' for 200m, and one lit for 'turn now')
would anyone like to brain storm or help out on this project? or am i just crazy?
