hey just wanted to put a gps on my bike so i can go places with out worrying about remebering turns! and dont know if any of u guys are doing it and how? how do u keep it charged??! connect it to the battery??
i may not be real smart but why would you buy a dedicated gps for ?
They generally update faster as you're traveling and are more accurate to your position.
Plus then your phone will still be charged up by the time you get to your destination, instead of having 50% of your smartphone battery drained from screen and gps usage.
That being said...I have a dedicated GPS, but I never really use it because its a few years old. My GS3 outclasses it now. It looks up places faster, and I will throw headphones on and put it in my pocket if I want instructions while I'm on my motorcycle.
Add in a charge charger and cradle, and it is great for the car too.
It does piss me off occasionally though, when it loses signal for no reason or thinks I'm driving in a field instead of the road next to it.
I have a Dynojet LCD and used a mount from http://www.techmounts.com
I used the 70050X mount that clamps around the fork because I have a Scotts
damper so I could not use the steering stem mount that I like.
Its made really nice but is did cost like $75
