Is anyone using a Samsung galaxy or I touch player on their bike for the radio and mp3 usage ?

There was a thread on this a few days ago, didn't try real hard but I didn't see it. Interested though.

I use an iPod Touch via Bluetooth into a Sena SMH10 to listen to music on my bikes.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7" via blue tooth to my helmet headset is very nice.

I got a Nexus 7 for Christmas that I am tempted to use on the bike.

I might even mount it over the KLR dash as my heads up display, but I worry about the vibes.

fabbed a removable mount for my truck dash, was thinking about building something up for the bike. Mine is also a Galaxy Tab 2 7" you'd be amazed at all the things you can do using the android app Tasker with regard to music functions and ignition triggers...

I got a Nexus 7 also and thought I'd like to use it on the bike but when I tried the GPS app in my truck it was horrible. Seems it won't work properly when there isn't any wi-fi access which is stupid.

It'd still be nice for BT music to the Senna but will changing songs etc require a stylus or one of those special gloves??

If you have a Sena SMH-10, you can skip tracks forward and back using the jog dial on the Sena. No need to touch the tablet at all for that.

That's good, one issue solved, thanks.

It SHOULD work fine without wifi connected, but you need an app that downloads the maps for offline use. OSMand is good and a member here has made a motorcycle specific version called Dual Sport Maps. Although you can also download regions for offline use in Google Maps.

It kind of depends on your gloves. Thick winter gloves wont work, but thin summer ones will....at least well enough to hit the track forward button.

I've been thinking about using a nexus 7 since I lost my gps on a trail somewhere. I use dual sport maps on my android phone. I read where some guy mounted one and vibrations were just to much so he put it in the map section of a tank bag. I've been looking for a very thin tank bag, I don't really like those big lumps stuck out in front of me.

The newer GL tank bag is pretty thin and the Nexus fits like they were made for each other.

I was just researching gps options. Was looking at the garmin montana 650, (not free) , but started to think about other options like a small tank bag with a window on the top ( i have concerns with vibration) and Nessus 7 , runnning the Dual Sport Maps. It is not as full featured like google maps, but for out on the trail it should work fine. On the road I would use my Droid x2 and google maps (soon to be Droid Razor max hd) . After using the droid and google maps, makes me wonder if stand alone GPS units will continue to become marginalized.
