One of the crowdfunded projects that I found worthwhile to fund was the Hammerhead Bicycle Navigation device. Hammerhead is a simple, smart and social navigation platform for bicycles that also includes local route discovery.
Yesterday after several months, I finally got the Hammerhead that I ordered, I had to pay 29 Euros I custom fee to get the shipment. The Hammerhead came in a nice box with the Hammerhead logo printed on the box, nice touch.
I open up the box and found the Hammerhead in a display box with all parts. I looks really neat the Hammerhead simple but effective design. With the Hammerhead I got a handlebar mounting device and a usb cable to charge the Hammerhead.
The installation on my bike was very easy, all I needed to do was to attach the mount bracket to my TT handle bar, that was easy.
I downloaded the latest Hammerhead mobile app, the Hammerhead app is available on iTunes and on the Google Play store. When I had the app running on my mobile phone, the recommendation is to update the Hammerhead Firmware by connecting the Hammerhead device to the mobile app and update the Firmware.
I did that by following this video
which show how to update the firmware.
To learn the initial turn instructions, I followed this video.
So far everything has been very smooth, I’m now ready to do my first bike ride with my Hammerhead, I let you know how that went.
