Unless you have a spy plane up, they seem totally useless. Am I missing another use for them?

they are pretty useless in HC. – liho1eye Dec 20 '10 at 14:10
Just did some research. They work if you press start. Whats the point? Bad game design imo. :/ – theorise Dec 20 '10 at 15:58
Hardcore games are designed to have a limited HUD. Play standard core if you want to use Motion Sensors – DarkShiva Dec 21 '10 at 2:46
Imo they should bring up the radius of the equipment up as a minimap. Quite an obvious thing to add into the game if they had thought about it. – theorise Dec 21 '10 at 9:41

They are definitely useless, unless you like to pause your game constantly, which seems like a bad idea.
