    Any hint (some future plans) about the possibility to import route via Flow web service and start the training session with route guidance (bread cumb) on M460? This is also missing from current M450 (instaed of this I use navigation on V800 on small display 😦 ), V650 is missing lots of features and no updates for quite a long time (it seems that they already finished the development of the firmware).

  2. No hints and i don’t think they would add it to the Sports (M) series. It’s more of an option for the Pro (V) series.
    The heart of the V650 is Android based, which looked like a pro at the time, but turned out a hell to support and work with. No updates means all bugs solved i would assume. 🙂

    1. Nice commercial for the new Varia Smart Bike light.
      The new Varia Garmin head bikelight (placed in a lamp) which will be launched shortly (sea otter) and has remote control (back+radar will also follow).
      Charging via micro USB (light has internal 18650 lithium ion rechargeable cell)
      Ant control for: On/Off, Battery Status, Beams (High/Low/..) and Selection of modes
      I don’t think its a going to be a big thing (in my eyes).
      I haven’t seen seen any hardware that would surprise me.
      Other more unlikely options would be an app which connects direct or indirectly to existing lamps (=new protocol support). Or least likely a Garmin HW module,
