Show us your dashboard photos (commuter edition)

Inspired by the Show us your dashboard thread in the roadies forum , this thread is for posting photos of your commuter's dashboard.

Here's mine:



From left to right:

- Magellan Explorist 500 GPS mounted using Magellan's own bike mount kit.
- 10W Halogen BLT headlight
- Water bottle mounted on right side of dual mount bracket to avoid blocking the light
- Bionx controller with Thumb throttle. The controller displays speed, odometer, distance, average speed, time and time elapsed as well as other Bionx information (charge, battery etc.)

All I have is a comp, an HID, and a backup LED headlight. Not sure why I'd need more than that. I don't actually need the comp, and actually I don't really look at it. It's mainly there for the odometer function so I can keep track of drivetrain maintenance. Also once a month or so I do a couple of days of paying attention to my cadence.

Here are my two usual commuters. I'd rather refer to them as "cockpits" than "dashboards," though.

Sorry man, I gotta ask, do you really get so lost on your commute that you need a GPS? Sweet setup!

Why did you somehow equate a GPS with "getting lost" ?

GPSes, especially the 500 i have, have a lot of useful features beyond getting you un-lost. track logs, clock, speed, eta, points of interests (places to go) and so on.
