Agreed! This would be a great feature! The more information that we have while riding would really make it safer! There are so many things that they could do with the software that would be amazing! For example, the "auto connect" doesn't really seem to auto connect. Having to start the app every time you turn on the board sucks! It would be nice to have it just recognize the board is now on and connect to the phone - like when I jump into my BMW, the car automatically connects to the phone and music starts where I left off etc. They could also have a security feature that disables the board from engaging the motor if the phone is nowhere near the board. It would be a lot easier to chase someone trying to steal a 30lbs board than riding off on one! :) But FM seems to not be thinking about those kinds of things and we're left to the new upgrade of Academy videos.

RE: So Future Motion seems to have forgotten about their Forum
Yeah, it's not as easy to find the forum... I had to go in my history to find the link.
RE: Looking for some help riding.
What has really helped me was to start jumping off with both feet. I used to always almost fall trying to do it the "lift the heel" way. I've recently tried lifting my toes and as my legs have gotten stronger, it's been so much more easy to trigger it to turn off without slamming down on the rear and/or falling off.
RE: How is no one yet posting about the new PINT launch?
I ordered one! This will be a perfect #2 that the kids can ride and I'll take it on shorter rides when I may have to carry it longer distances.
RE: Cold weather riding
I had my OW in the back of the car this morning at work and I went to ride it during lunch (it's 14 deg F) However, the power button light came on but when I stood on it nothing... it just tipped front down. I tried a couple of times to turn it on/off but nothing. I guess cold weather isn't good for the OW's. This worries me a little since there's at least 6 weeks of winter left :(
