Has anyone tried one of these?  Image stabilised, waterproof and most importantly built in GPS to record speed and direction with video.  To me it sounds like an ideal training tool.

This has been out for a while in the ATCK 9, abet with crap software to run it. It is fantastic being able to watch speeds increase and decrease relative to what you are doing, an excellent training tool.

The ATC9K was ok, but as you say terrible software, flimsy construction and very small buttons at the back.

If garmin improve on the minor faults of the ATC 9K they might have a viable competitor to GoPro.
