Pioneer PotterNavi fills in for your bicycle’s missing GPS geekness

by Gareth Mankoo

Pioneer’s Japanese wing has spun out the PotterNavi, a specially crafted GPS system for bicycles. Besides guiding you effectively through streets as you peddle, it also as a dedicate bike cradle and an ANT+ sensor that will enlighten you on your bike’s speed and cadence once it is installed on your bike’s rear wheel. Other features include a calorie counter, off-road GPS waypoint system, an IPX5 waterproof body and data displayed on a 2.4-inch display screen. You can enjoy map data made available on demand with 3G support.

You get two years free 3G data and access to TV weather broadcast information, among safety alerts. It will ship for 40,000 Yen in February 2012.
