Also, I'm looking at the tomtom or magellan apps. Haven't looked into navigon much. Anyone use the tomtom or magellan apps?
From what I hear, the Ram-mounts are the way to go. I was planning to eventually put a dedicated GPS system onto the bike... But with how well the iPhone is working, I'm not so sure I'll actually add a GPS unit anymore.

I've never used either of those apps. However, I have a Tomtom for my car and love it. I really don't have any real complaints... Of course, I don't use it very heavily. I also have a Magellan handheld unit, and it is a huge piece of junk. The interface is very clunky, I had many software problems, and their customer service is all overseas and worthless. Magellan has the absolute worst customer service of any company I have ever dealt with. I can't ever remember being more frustrated dealing with a company than I was with Magellan. I will never buy a single product of theirs again, and encourage others not to as well, after having to deal with their 'customer service' department.
