I would jump in if:
-The promise of radar support comes to fruition. I have learned to not buy something that is not fully developed and wait for the features to be built over time.
-Stages link looks less than stellar (free version) -having used Garmin connect for the last 7 years - at least I know the limitations and frustrations. I checked out the free version of link and building a workout seems more finicky - maybe i am wrong?
-Mapping/GPS gets good real world feedback and battery life works as projected. I guess I will have to follow the early adopters online.
- Finally - and this is a big one - mounting it to my bikes. I have a Giant propel SL (2016) and need a stem faceplate mount. Just when I ordered a combo Garmin GoPro from fouriers - I see these stages devices and even before contemplating ordering one - I am getting shudders having to try and find a dash/GoPro solution that will mount to my stem faceplate bolts.
