Seems like a great idea but I wonder how long before BMW buy him out.

I see that the app is going to be free but what was the rest of kit going to cost when in production ? Presumably similar to the $200 pledge ?

I don't know either. What I like about it is it picks up the controller's input and seems to use it like a mouse. Maybe even an ipad would work.
I'm not given up the Navigator yet.. And the Kickstarter isn't going that great either for now. But I don't like BMW for limiting volume control to their own b/t system

I feel guilty enough speeding along with the distraction of a GPS in front of me.  Putting a phone in front of me would make me die.  :003:

Hi,  My name is Keith, I'm one of the creators of the WunderLINQ.  We currently estimate the retail MSRP to be $250-$300.

Hi Salem,  Any recent Android or iOS device will work, including an iPad.

Keith - do me a favour and fix the broken links on your blackboxembedded website, simply things like that never inspire confidence.

Hi, Thanks for the info, that's what you get when tech guys are doing the marketing.  We can't seem to find any broken links though, do you recall which one(s) they might have been?

We've posted a bunch of Kickstarter updates over the last week.  Feel free to send any questions my way.

Is this project still alive? I can't see any links to support or contribute to them.
