    I road the Lincoln County Dual sport a couple of weeks ago. I met a couple of guys that were using cell phones as GPSs' I can't remember what brand they were. they were relatively inexpensive but reliable. Any thoughts what they were?

    Thanks

    A number of folks (self included) have gone the route of a rugged phone, Kyocera DuraForce to be exact.

    There's an entire thread here about it!

    Was one of them a big dude on a XR650L?

    If it was, he's rocking a Kyocera Duraforce. I'm using an old Nexus 6 (I wasn't at that ride though).
