Never saw that before and it seemed pretty cool until I saw the $70 per tire sensor price tag on top of the $500 gps. Those sensors should be like 15-20, especially something that is so easy for someone steal.
It's VERY cool and convenient. Unfortunately, Garmin is quite proud of their products (I wish they would put some of the money the get gouging customers into their customer service department, which is one of the worst of any company with which I have dealt). Stealing the sensors is not much of a concern, since they're unobtrusive and there are so few of these overpriced navigation systems out on the road.

I watched Paintshaker throw his bike around at a rodeo. Anyone who can horse those heavy bikes through the cones has my respect.
