Motorcycle phone mount se moer
« on: May 22, 2019, 03:45:57 pm »
A few months ago I needed a new phone mount as I was sick of the over priced motorcycle specific shit that causes your phone to heat up and is generally bigger than a top box and panniers combined, so took to takealot to see what they had in the bicycle department,  R399 for a phone setup that has worked better than anything I have owned before.

Funny enough, I looked at that as well - decided it was too flimsy where it attached to the bars - guess I was wrong!''

Bought this instead

It's seriously solid as a barn door, and you can twist it to any angle,, one of the best purchases I have made for my bike in  many years

If your phone falls out of this thing I rate you have ridden under a truck, 200km of wash board riding a couple of weeks ago and nothing moved

Some people use motorcycles to go places.

It is handy for navigation using Google maps or some other navigation software.

I have been looking for a good sturdy mount. Having to memorize a route fully before setting of is getting old.

Net so. Google maps and also MAPS.ME for total off-line navigation. Geo-Tracker to track new routes. All on the phone.
People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day. And doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.

Nothing beats a fold up map blowing into several pieces in the wind  :biggrin: They do look like solid holders combined with a suction cup or something would be very useful in the car when us country folk dare go into the cities  :thumleft:

@P.K. speaks of another nice offline map on his site, "locus map"

I haven't used it yet since downloading it, but it looks like it might also work very nice
