This is the one I have.
I doubt I'll try an otterbox or anything like that because I don't think it will fit in the mount anymore. I'll go redneck and throw a ziplock bag over it and rubberband it down.
I haven't tested it all out yet. I can start a play list and then lauch the navigation software and it works fine using the ear buds. I don't have a bluetooth headset yet to make sure that works but I'll get one.
I tried the touchscreen a little yesterday but it's obvious that this could be a good way to kill yourself. No close calls but could be a distraction when at speed....same as any other navigation I guess. I'll certainly try to set it up before I get moving but it isn't too bad. I guess it would all be the riders call and what the are comfortable with.
When I tested it out yesterday (only about 10 miles) it stayed on so I think the nav software keeps it on. This is another reason the power from the bike is a must or it will drink the iPhone battery in no time.
