I have a Galaxy Nexus and the only plugin I can get to show up after install is the Presentation Pal. The other plugins are not even detected. Guess ICS and Liveview don't play nice with each other. Very neat toy. Am looking to get a better watch strap to use it as a watch.

Worth it for a cyclist to control music on the road do you think?

Got one from, could not get plugin's to show. Tried sporty pal pro and that worked! After reading this thread

Seems you need to enable plugins to get them to show. Problem is you enable them through liveview!

Fix is to use something to open the plugin's preferences to enable it. Suggested answer (which worked for me) is to use ADW Launcher, create custom shortcut > activities > "select plugin > preferences" launch and enable.

Now connection issues are a different story!

I just picked up a brand new MN800 for 30 bucks
it's a site special with free shipping,
and it's only for today (3/28) So if you're looking to buy, this is 10 bucks below any ebay price!

I have a vzw nexus is it really worth dropping 40$ on one of these things? or should I just not even bother?

Default Liveview - Driver for Windows

I have downloaded the latest version of PC Companion from, installed the program first and then connected the Liveview with usb cable in DFU mode. I got an error message that windows 7 is not able to find driver for the liveview, usually the driver is installed with the program, so what should i do in this case?

If you're running ICS, don't bother. It doesn't play nice with the app that the liveview needs to stay connected. Since I upgraded from Gingerbread, it's been a nightmare.
