So far here are the pros/cons:
Pros: I really like the fact that the battery is removable. That was one of my biggest concerns. If you need the device over the span of several days, you have the option of recharging overnight or buying an extra battery to charge before the ride.
Con: the mounting process was very nerveracking for me. Mainly because I wanted to make dame sure it was in the optimal viewing range and worse - my Shark helmet has a protruding ridge right where the Nuviz needed to mount. So I had to really play with it for about 15-20 minutes to find a suitable place to mount that allowed me a decent viewing angle. I'm not 100% happy with the mount point and I've sent a message to Nuviz. I'll wait to see what they say. Until then, I have it clamped onto the helmet for the next 24 hours. I have one corner slightly exposed still which is the corner that is towards the front, which sucks.
Another con is that I loved how light my new Shark helmet was. Now I feel like I'm back to my Scorpion helmet with the added weight of the Nuviz. However, I'm sure once I start getting used to it, I won't notice it anymore, we shall see. I have 30 days to try it out. That will tell me if it's too heavy or not.
Pro: The controller is very easy and intuitive to use. The menu and device options are also very easy to use with the controller. I was pleasantly surprised. I did/do have some issues with the pairing of multiple blue tooth devices. Mainly because Nuviz keeps wanting to become the primary device for audio output. I think I figured out how to keep my audio output to my other device, which I had to make the primary device for my phone.
Pro: the Nuviz app is very easy to use. At first I didn't like having to download a map through the app to the device. but after playing with it, I have come to appreciate that approach as it saves battery power on the phone by having the map uploaded directly to the device. The app itself is also cool in the sense that it allows you to change more settings within the Nuviz device itself. At first I think the menu on the device was limited, but once I saw the app and the settings available via the app, I was happy to play around with the settings.
Con: It doesn't ship with a micro SD card, but that's to be expected I suppose.
Con: it doesn't come with usb C. Really? For a $700 unit that is suppose to embrace the future, they opt to not use usb C? Not a major con as it doesn't affect usability at all. Just the principle of the matter.
I'll keep you all posted on how it goes tomorrow after I can start using the unit on the helmet. Now I need to figure out where/how I'm going to mount the controller.
