No! Unless you count starting in Paris as being part of a camino!
I did a night tour of Paris on a Segway in 2004 before walking to Spain.
They are GREAT fun!!

The X2 is the off-road model and the one most suited for a Camino!

I don't think I'd like to try it on some of the muddy, rocky, steep camino paths!

The concept would be more like following bicycle routes used by road bikes, not mountain bikes. The sales pitch is that the X2 can traverse hills, rocky paths, grass, and roads. I am interested in verifying the sales pitch! Other problems would be the 20 km range on a charge (probably the maximum range for a 160 pound rider on level terrain), entrance to albergues (since one would not be on foot or a self-powered bicycle), and the speed of recharging (and cost) in bars and hostals.

Still, it is an interesting thought for aging knees and ankles ...

Suffice it to say I haven't yet stopped walking
If I can't get my right knee in shape this would be a fun alternative. I can just think of how it would be careening down the mountain into Roncevalle, screaming at the top of my lungs that I have lost control of the thing.

20 k is rather limited assuming that is only available at/on flat surfaces.

It is not a Segway, but it is close:

Having experienced scooter traffic on sidewalks and alley ways in cities such as Granada and Alicante ... I would hope the use of biscúter is not encouraged on the camino ...
