I am sort of new to the world of motorcycle navigation solutions. I started using one only last year after I purchased a Garmin Zumo 595lm. The provided mapping software is such a disgrace and led me to myroute app.
I have been using MyRoute-app for planning and I am very satisfied. But how about navigation?
The benefit of using a GPS on my eyes, is having a dedicated device with a proper mount, charge feed and weather protection. It simply works. Well sometimes it does not turn on or crashes but that’s a different point. The downsides are that I can not pass it routes on the go (needs a laptop for f$&k sake) and only navigates tracks (routes with only shapepoints and no recomputation is basically a track).
I have only tried the navigation app from myroute on short weekend rides. I only have an iPhone 8 and I bought the first Ram Mount I found to hold it. The app was rather great. However, the screen is not as big as the gps, the battery was drained after 4 hours having the track recoding option on and the weather was dry. I have no idea if it would have survived a riding day in the rain, let alone a week.
So here it is. What are you using? If it is a phone, which brand and how you mount it? Do you have a dedicated ride phone?
Thanks and may we all ride soon again!
