HTC-Columbia on Google Maps

Very cool. I haven’t seen anything like this from Garmin, which should be embarrassing for them. If HTC puts freaking Android phones on their riders and broadcast stats, Garmin certainly can. While its true that their consumer devices don’t have radios to broadcast their live status, I’m sure that Garmin are getting live stats from their Tour riders. In any case, they could do some fun things with their Garmin Connect site regarding the Tour. This is about as close as I’ve seen from them, which is fine, but HTC’s live transmission of data from its entire team kicks ass.
