Hmm. I think it really depends on your size. It seems pretty hardy to  
me. One of mine has suffered a slight drop with no problem.

I'm an avid cyclist and I am also thinking about a similar app.  
Something that integrates track data to a site like http:// 
www.motionbased.com (by Garmin though) would be very cool. It handles  
the mapping and data analysis.

I think this is where my GTA01 is going to head once new hardware  
revs come out. I don't want to strap my shiny  Neo on my handlebars  
just yet, but as soon as I get my grubby hands on a new one, the  
GTA01 on my bike can start bluetoothing GPS data to my desktop and  
onto the web. :-)


PS. I've CC'd this to openmoko-apps since that where it belongs I think.
