Oakley Airwave

Anyone have any thoughts on these new goggles? They use the MOD Live, and I have read a couple of places they will be compatible with the new gopro hd hero black edition.

I am not an expert, but besides the price tag I think they are pretty cool-especially for a tech guy like me.

Any and all responses are appreciated.

What do you mean by 'compatible' with the GoPro 3? Mounting compatibility (i.e., possible to attach the GoPro to the Goggle in a special way) or that the GoPro can stream directly to the Recon display? Or something else?

By compatible I mean that you would be able to see the live stream just like you would be able to with the Contour+ or Contour GPS. Apparently, because the Airwave uses bluetooth technology and the new GoPro Hero 3 has built in bluetooth it should work? That said, I am pretty sure you can buy a wifi bacpac for an older model of the GoPro that gives it bluetooth functionality so I may go into the store today and test it out.

Either way, you can get a live stream so you can know what you are filming-but with the Contour products.

Below is a link to an article from CNET claiming functionality with the GoPro.

Forget the big box stores camera's. Contour cams are far better than Go Pro.

Thumbs up

My local REI has the Contour GPS that is bluetooth enabled on sale for $149. I might search around for a better deal, but I might get that for this season.
