Waterproof GPS unit for bikes

Clarion continues to carve a niche in devices for two-wheeled transportation.

Akihabara News

In the hypercompetitive business of on-board vehicle electronics, Clarion is apparently trying to carve out a niche for itself in two-wheeled transportation. A few months ago it introduced a "Drip-Proof" CD player for Japan's scooter market, for example, and now it's come up with a waterproofed version of its "DrivTrax" GPS unit suitable for handlebar mounting as well.

The device, which costs about $172, can be removed so it can be carried around (and not stolen) while running on AA batteries. Akihabara News says it also includes a speaker, though we have no idea how anyone would be able to hear it above the din of Tokyo traffic.
