I blame @ohgood. Not so long ago, I was a semi happy Garmin user who had clocked up thousands of miles over many years using different models of their infernal devices from early handhelds to the Nav V and Zumo 590. I had earnt all the badges (expert Basecamp user, 3rd party map user etc. tracks and routes and of course, understanding why hardly anyone in a party ever has the same route). I was only semi happy because although I always got where I was going, it was obvious that Garmin cared not a hoot for motorcyclists and didn't understand our needs nor why we wouldn't want overpriced outdated devices running really crappy software. Finally, thanks to @ohgood's evangelism I saw the light and decided to try a smartphone. I already had an iPhone but quickly came to realise that the Android platform offered navigation apps more suited to my needs (basically a mix of navigating to the nearest Starbucks but also to places that didn't seem to have seen a human in the last few hundred years). Thus began my odyssey with Android phones. I now have 5 of the things and while I won't bore you with the ins and outs of exactly how this comes about, I thought it worth reporting on a couple of things. Firstly, there is a difference in the quality of the GPS performance these things have which becomes obvious in a variety of ways (eg, time of position acquisition, accuracy, etc.) One thing that came to annoy me about the Nomu S10 I sang the praises of here not too long ago was that it seemed to lose itself rather frequently showing me navigating somewhere not on a road but displaced a few hundred yards,for example. Recorded tracks also often displayed the characteristics of a drunken spider at work, especially if I stopped somewhere for a while. To compensate for this problem I actually bought another Garmin device - a GLO bluetooth receiver- which paired to the phone and records much much better tracks (basically it means the phone's GPS is simply unused). The image below shows the difference in recorded tracks for four Android devices and my iPhone from my stroll this morning to pick up the newspaper. All devices using their native GPS. Android devices set to use GPS only for location. Tracks recorded using the same app (Ultra GPS logger) except on the iPhone. The AGM A8 is the stand out winner and unfortunately, the Nomu S10 is clearly the worst. The MotoG is very good and surprisingly, the DooGee (a cheap and nasty, very un-rugged phone which I bought as my first android device as an experiment) does quite well. The second thing I think worth mentioning is that I have two Nomu S10s, as the first picked up some virus I was unable to eradicate and I was also unable to root the phone to get rid of a system app which antivirus software disliked and was possibly the entry vector for the virus I got. I am not sure how the phone became infected to be honest but I also suspect the ad-supported app I used for linking the Garmin GLO to the phone. In any case, it bothered me enough that I bought the AGM which has enabled me to do without the GLO. The AGM is not quite as bright as the Nomu (which has a terrific screen) but it is good enough and its battery is smaller - 4050 mAh vs 5000 mAh but I can live with that too. Both Nomu and AGM are rugged phones but the AGM is really built like a tank and the covers for charging socket, earbuds etc look to be seriously waterproof. It is also Android 7 vs 6 for the Nomu. The MotoG is a nice little phone and I have become so fond of it that I mostly carry it as a pocket phone these days. It works fine as a satnav for the bike and is water resistant but its smaller battery means that it needs charging on the go.
