This lightweight unit from Motion Research Corporation
has built-in GPS and attaches to your motorcycle helmet to display speed, radar alerts, RPM, and shift alerts. A similar model for skydivers includes altitude.

Heh, that would be the world's most frustrating web browser... from the specs, the display has: 32 bar graph segments, 6 alphanumeric characters, and 4 general purpose indicators.
On the plus side, I like the way that they have done the dual backlighting: during the day you get ambient illumination through the clear window, and at night you have a normal red backlight.
For the curious, the information is coming from a short-range wireless link from a box you wire in to your cycle's instruments. So the helmet-mounted portion doesn't have stuff like a GPS receiver or radar detector, but it does have its own power supply, running off AAA's for 20 hours with backlight on, even longer with it off.
