    Just found this! Can't wait to try it, i'm gonna wait for the phone ap to come out first though.. At least now you'l be able to adjust your camera b4 and during your ride and make sure your not just viewingthe ground or the sky :)

    From the amount of videos I've seen where they've added in the comments "Sorry for the crappy view, the GoPro was aimed a little low" or the likes, this sounds like an awesome tool!

    I'm going to be looking at buying a GoPro for myself soon, so I'll be sure to get this along with it!

    Thanks for the share mate!

    Cheers,

    Would be nice but i dno't have a 3d telly yet + who the hell wants to watch tv with glasses on??? Give it a year or 2 and I hope we'll get the TV's that don't require them. Funny thing is i have a still camera that does 3D but I have no way of viewing my photos to see what they look like... Oh well.

    I have the LCD back for mine so aiming it has never been a problem.

    I got no idea what I'd use this setup for.. but I want it anyway haha
    another thing to add to the list

    If you guys enjoy a good 3D movie in the cinema, then you'll enjoy a 3D TV.
    As long as you get proper SBS 3D movies (side-by-side), then it actually is as lifelike as it is in the cinemas.

    When I bought my TV, I thought the exact same thing, screw 3D - I don't wanna wear glasses, and it won't even be that good! - but my dad bought a 3D tv for himself anyway, and so I thought I'd give it a go.

    That **** is amazing! And it's so good to know that we're only going forward!

    I never even notice the LCD backpac b4.... oops. But new edition will be good, especially for when you helmet OR chest mount the unit.

    Does the LCD back fit in the standard GoPro case? Or do you have to buy 1 that will fit it?

    Think you'll need the extended back casing, same thing is used on the extended battery setup, At least i think thats the case....(pun intended :p) Looks like the wifi pac will be the same. P.S can be a pain in the bum sometimes as I found out, it means that you can no longer use the chest mount without using the extender arms to hold it in place :(

    The LCD comes with about 4 different extended backs that click straight onto your normal case so it fits

    Yeah, I've had this problem a few times with the head and chest strap.. but works fine with one of the little extension arms.
