Thanks, I buzz around here enough to probably make it worth my time Since I don't always have 3G or wifi available, I was thinking that alone would make it worth it.

Has anyone had any success using iPhone Voice Memo or Dragon Dictation apps, over bluetooth with the Nolan N-Com helmet system?

+1. I use it on several forums. There are a few moto web sites that said they were going to be developing their own iPhone/Android app, but tapatalk has been accelerating in terms of features and reach. I can't see that it makes sense for a small group of web sites to develop an app, especially when the cost to the site owner is nil.

I just tried using the Scala Rider 2. It did not work.

bookmarks

I know most of the discussion is revolving around apps but something I find very useful is bookmarking dept of transportation sites (depending on what state your in or traveling through). You can bookmark and add to your screen and place all in a folder - I have Colorado DOT in my weather folder for instance. You could also, once inside a DOT site find highway webcams or specific roads (interstate, HWY etc..) and bookmark those. This is a quick and easy way to get what you need before rolling through, say the mountain passes.

Great Thread!!

It's not the simplest to set up. It's far from idiot proof. But once you have what you want it works well. I used this to ride from pa to sc about a Month ago. I set it for a camera every 100 miles to avoid the snow. It helped a lot as you can see below passing thru wv.

Ok
I wrote a note to apple today. A suggestion for motorcyclist. I want the lock orientation button to lock in either orientation. Not just portrait. This would be good when using gps software in landscape. I find on a bike it skips back and forth more when the phone is in landscape mode and becomes almost useless. So I have my phone locked in portrait. This is not a huge request since the iPad already does this. It might already be part of the next OS. But it never hurts to ask.


A reminder on how to lock the orientation. Double click the button as if to switch programs. Then slide the lower icons to the right revealing the iPod controls and the orientation lock button. The best thing I learned fromnthis thread.

I ride a Wee-Strom; I'm pretty damn cheap. And even I think $10 for a solid, genuinely useful piece of software is a great deal.

Bit of a late reply. I'm not cheap, but I like to seek value for my money. The Accuweather app does the same thing and it's free. I too used a similar feed and other satellite imagery for defining pest infestations in crops, down to the 1/2 acre scale. Drastically cut the use of pesticides (good for the planet) and cost (good for the farmer). That application was unique (at the time), so people were willing to pay for it.

I'm all for rewarding the developer's time and effort. Especially since I've personally developed applications for which I was mostly paid handsomely.

However, I'm all about the free market. If you don't produce something that compelling enough, and keep ahead of the competition, people will go elsewhere. Sucks sometimes, especially after investing $80,000 for a digital signature application back in 1995 and $50,0000 on a mobile banking application back in 2000 (prototyped on a Psion Series 5). But, I wouldn't have it any other way.

Thanks for the heads up on the Trackr program. Now $3.99 is worth it for this app.

I have the SPOT messenger which is nice for emergencies (satellite based rather than cellular), but the Trackr will work great on the iPhone. One less thing to have on the handlebars.

Verizon today announced the iPhone is coming to verizon on feb 4th to current subscribers and feb 10th to new customers. So if you are unhappy with AT&T. Or your droid. Your wait is over. I think our little app thread is about to get pretty busy.
