    The WunderLINQ, upgrade your Navigation system

    The WunderLINQ by Black Box Embedded

    Hi, my name is Keith Conger, co-owner of Black Box Embedded. My business partner, Wayne Black and Just launched a Kickstarter campaign introducing our new BMW motorcycle accessory called WunderLINQ. WunderLINQ is a plug and play system that gives the rider full control of their smartphone via BMW’s multi-controller. Control of a smartphones navigation, media and communication functions all while riding without the rider removing their hands from the handlebars. WunderLINQ provides the rider with substantially greater functionality over the OEM navigation system at a significantly lower cost.

    WunderLINQs major features include:
    BMW multi-controller ‘Wonder Wheel’ to control your smartphone
    Companion WunderLINQ smartphone app to efficiently manage key smartphone features while riding;
    User selected navigation
    Trip and waypoint logging
    User selected media/music control
    BMW motorcycle running data with optional data logging
    BMW fault decoding with audible/visual alerts (Over 35)
    Video/Photo Recording, use your phone as an action cam
    Physical smartphone mounting to BMW GPS prep, propriety magnet or RAM
    5W smartphone charger

    Hi ReGenesis,

    Sorry, I'm not sure I understand, why would it be expensive in the UK?

    Thanks,
