- The Garmin is useful, many a time, but in Atlanta (and, in other cities, where I have used it), it has often routed me through some extremely busy, unsafe, streets. I am not sure how Garmin is incorporating feedback from real data (from cyclist who commute, legally (not riding on the sidewalk, against traffic, etc).
- Google Maps is great, but I hate to have to mount my iPhone on the handlebar, for I am not sure I want to buy yet another contraption. I am not wanting to buy a all-weather case for my iPhone and I do not want to expose my iPhone to inclement weather. Another drawback with the iPhone is its pathetic (IMHO) battery life, when using Google Maps or any mapping software. Please note that I do have the biggest and the greatest iPhone, to date; namely, the iPhone 5s.
- Finally, I want simplified directions, when it is not necessary to have the whole shebang. Quite honestly, I seldom look at all the data that my Garmin provides anymore, particularly when I am riding. I want useful info and less noise!
I am pretty psyched about this product. It offers me many of the things I am looking for, in one very innovative, simple to use, yet effective package!

I am looking forward to receiving my Hammerhead device soon and putting it to full use; sharing the data with Hammerhead and helping the bicycling community.
I hope you will share my enthusiasm and back Hammerhead as well.
