I've done some pretty rough stuff with my GPS mounted on that bracket and it's still there, in one piece.

Theres no need to spend hundreds on an expensive motorcycle GPS. So my question is has anyone mounted a Andriod phone to there Tiger? If so what mount did you use?

I dont agree with smartphone apps as a main source of navigation because you wont always have service. Also, you may want to take this over to the GPS section.

You mean cellphone service ? Most modern smartphones don't need cellphone service to operate as GPS units - they have dedicated GPS chips.

But I do agree, the poster would get more traction with this in the dedicated GPS forum than here.

I did not know smartphones have an internal way to communicate with satelites. I thought most of them worked off of cell towers. Either way I find a GPS much more reliable and resistant to the weather than using a smarthpone. Thats just my opinion.

Most smartphones do have GPS capability, but don't store the map tiles on the phone, instead downloading the map data from the cellular data network as you drive.

One of the interesting things about this new app is that it allows you to download and store map tiles before you enter a region that will likely be without cell coverage.

The app author has also designed a neat remote control module so that you can put the phone in a waterproof case and still be able to access the app controls.

All in all, I'm quite interested in it, and am happy to see its development.

Damn I am striking out today. I best keep my mouth shut. Sounds like a nice set up.

Well, you were partly right in that the standard map apps do need cellphone coverage to work correctly. That said, there are apps that do not but I agree with you in that I'd sooner use a dedicated GPS given a choice.

Ah, now that is interesting. How do you like it - I assume it clips on so you don't have to drill holes in the screen ? I am looking for something just like this but I really don't want to drill holes in my screen. I also want to be able to take it off when I don't need it - e.g. when doing dirt say.

Edit: Is that an older model - I can't find anything like it on the Touratech USA site. I also notice what appears to be a bolt or something in the middle of the screen - is that for the spoiler or ?

Edit...Again: Is it this one for the GS ?

WTF was Triumph thinking here?

Is there a technique other than holding the nozzle up and spraying between the bars to avoid backsplash?

The bars are there to protect the fuel pump from overly aggresive nozzle insertion.

No doubt, it leaves something to be desired for some refueling techniques.

I always hold the nozzle with the tip just in the bike's neck for refueling, and have used this method for years to control splashing and spray, so it's not a big deal for me. I also use less fuel pressure on refueling than most people.

Talk about a PITA. I've only refueled it twice, but this caught me totally off guard. The person who designed this system gets a big, fat, fucking FAIL.
