FDA not the only roadblocker here in US
Great device, but won’t be here in the US anytime soon. We all know and love (!) FDA here–but a GPS device like this is regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) which is even slower, from what I understand, in its approvals. There is a very real debate going on about reassigning spectrum, but from what I’ve heard devices like this are put to the bottom of the pile.
