Same here. Been on the bike 10 years and rock solid. Likely take a while before they disappear and move over strictly to the PV3. By the way, if you are happy with how it all works, don't do the latest software and firmware updates via the updater. No gain but more clunky and aggravating to use. I'm speaking of the latest software 18.104.22.168, firmware 2.5.0-1659 and tune base 0.0.10.13.I can't imagine not having the display after getting so used to it. But doesn't surprise me. Market and bottom line dictates the direction product development goes I guess. I just hope mine doesn't crap the bed.
Yes, I see the reason for one. They are a stupid monthly cost here compared to US and to me at the moment it's like pissing money way for very little gain. Someday, I might just do it for the reasons you mentioned. Wife has one, so not totally in the stone age. I'm not the last one on the planet to not have one but close. Hell, even every snot nose kid has one now.Ron you're my HERO ! I spent 3 hours last night just getting phone numbers off my texts and erasing texts and old voice messages. Best to do it daily for sure. If you can live without it do it but it's always good to have an inexpensive one on your person for emergency situations, working or riding alone, or wife, street criminal attacks us - ( or we light ourselves on fire in our garage ) so we gotta call the 911 for police or fire dept. - you get the idea - P.S. You may be one of the last people in civilized society that doesn't have one - Congratulations !!
