Which GPS would you suggest...
Hey Gar, when you go the phone route, don't make the same mistake I did. My new stupid, I mean smart phone gps doesn't pair with my bluetooth headset, or my scala rider helmet headset. Seems it only pairs with headsets that have an a2dp, or stereo to you and me, profile.Taz, probably next year I will abandon my land line and get into the do everything cell phone craze. Here are two articles (Smartphone / iPhone) on cell phone GPS navigation, some that work as a stand alone GPS without consuming your data plan which of course the Garminfone does as well.
Oops, back on topic... Taz, I've always had good results with garmin products (currently have the 265WT mentioned by Gar, and it's awsome in the car). If I was looking for a bike specific unit, i'd go with one of thier zumo units. I think they also have a 500(?) Series that is water proof/resistant.Which GPS would you suggest...
I'm keepin' ya on your toes, Jack!First thing I though when I saw this was... Alan must be the culprit.
Won't work. That USB cable and the iPhone need a step-down voltage of +5 and +3.3VDC. That's why not just any USB adapter in a cigarette lighter will work with an iPhone cord.You should be able to cut the end off the charger. Solder on two adaptors like circle pieces that will fit on the battery terminals. Although I would have to take my volt meter to it and see what kind of output the charger has.
I'll stare at it soon as I'm in the same boat
I was just looking at this mount. Appears pretty sturdy.
The cable came today. I will wire it up by Friday afternoon.I have an email off to Stephen at BurnsMoto for this one:
If he'll guarantee me that my USB charge cable for the iPhone will work with this USB socket, I'm buying this one, for sure.
