Default augmented reality goggles -- which features would you want?

EDIT: Here's my intro video! We're not all perfect (at reading the rules) :P
https://vimeo.com/111002318

Hello! I'm new here and I'd like to request some feedback about a project I'm working on. So some friends and I are snowboarders and software developers (hard life...), and we're creating augmented reality goggles that will let you overlay features (friends' locations, maps, ride stats, ski lift wait times, video recording, ???, etc.) directly over your vision when you're wearing them.

Think the heads-up display in Top Gun, or scouters from Dragon Ball Z, but ski goggles, and not for killing people.

Speaking of killing people, I've talked to a lot of people about this idea, and many think they're dangerous/distracting. I agree, so me and my buddies made it so the only feature available while you're moving is your speed/altitude (and only if you turn those on). Everything else you can only do while standing still. Do you think this mitigates risk enough?

Anyhow, we've just finished our first prototype, and we'd like to hear from some you regarding which features you'd find most useful. If you feel like it, it would be cool if you'd take this survey (4 minutes!) and help us out.

Here's the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ML6JXVN

If you think the mountain is a place to get away from technology, simply don't participate in the conversation

Any negative/positive feedback? feel free to share here. Thanks!

I want goggles which allow the user to be able to read the rules.

Rules aside, I hate this idea.. %&^&** live in regular reality, not "augmented".
How short is your attention span, anyway?
How many tecno distractions do you need?

It's like you are trying to turn humanity into the $%^& Borg..

Rant over.
