    That is very cool. I was on ATT for 12 years and as soon as I ditch them they get the S4 Active. I do want one of those.

    I'm using the xperia active and it is just great. Crafty is right, I have the remote for it and use that a lot. But the phone is easy to use as a stand alone and there are a few things that the remote can't do that you need a finger touch for. I have absolutely abused the poor thing and it is no worse for the wear.

    I looked at the Galaxy Active and it doesn't look up to the task so I am staying put with the Sony.

    When it is pouring rain I'll shut the little access doors to the power and headphone jacks but they've been open plenty of times and gotten soaked.

    Mine is the international version, so I don't get 3G or 4G with ATT service, only EDGE (major suck). So it pretty much lives on my bike and I use WiFi for whatever DSM needs I have.

    For dirt riding, I have a pair of gloves that I've snipped the end off of the index finger and that works. For real gloves, you'd probably have to put some conductive thread in a fingertip or something like that. I haven't tried it.

    The lanyard is great but not really needed on the bike.

    Not earthshaking, but you can get stick-on loops (that use auto-grade adhesive) for cheap that allow a lanyard on anything.

    I will definitely buy one at $100, prolly $150 too, as I could cancel my Earl order and replace it with a lower-priced color tablet. Will the lower-cost version still have its own GPS chip (so the tablet won't need one)? (I think I recall that right.)

    With a Monterra, the CC Remote, and a large color tablet, I will have DS, ADV, and street riding covered. Then I will commit to subcribing, provided you kick all freeloaders off or restrict their downloading or something, or maybe even make them watch a 25 second ad each time they log on ;-) JK, I understand your theory, and well said with the Wiki example, BTW.

    thanks

    It is a neat phone for sure. There are some known problems with the waterproofing, but I hope to not experience them. I didn't like some of the functions but rooting and a small utility fixed them. I also don't like the power and headphone jack on opposite side and the power button placement, but I will get used to them.

    I tested the glove mode and it is not as sensitive as expected, but it definitely works. Some playing will get me dialed in for sure.

    The Galaxy note II I just got for the business works good with summer weight gloves. My Moose XCR with leather fingers takes a firm long touch.

    I just signed up, I bought a galaxie phone a few months ago for $50 and have been playing around with app. It works awesome, You just have to play with it for while if your not that technical like myself. I have been really enjoying laying out my tour of Colorado using my tracks I made and others. I will be using my garmin as a back up not the other way around. I apologize it took me so long to pay the small fee you're asking for each month.
    Congrats on new baby!!:clap

    It crashed. Thanks for the heads up I've got it back online. Sorry for the interruption.

    A few quick questions. Which tablet would you recommend? I am thinking of the Samsung Galaxy 3 7". Also, when I create my own gpx with Google Earth and then load it on my phone (or new tab), is there a way to have the app download the maps that surround the gpx track automatically?
    Thanks,

    Any tablet with a good GPS will work fine. I strongly suggest you use the website to store your tracks. The drawing tools are also really great so you should give them a shot too. Once the tracks are on the website you can sync the tracks and cache the tiles on the tablet in 4 clicks or so. Easy Peasy

    Sweet. I haven't seen the drawing tool yet, so I will check it out. I have upped my tracks to the site. Thank you!

    +1 on the website :clap ! It's the combination of the app and website that make it so powerful :deal . Even use it to plan hiking routes. Sharing routes and waypoints with others is a breeze too. Nothing not to like.

    I download the map to my laptop and then use the .gpx file to add the info to the Garmin I carry as a back-up.

    That's a bummer I guess the wait is on for an Android 2.2 or higher e-ink tablet or phone....
