    Be prepared to watch your phone flog around like 5yo on red cordial!
    After killing my iPh 11's rear camera, I fitted the dampener mount but wasn't prepared for the jiggiling that it does (must get my phone fixed too).

    Today a package arrived :) Slurp!

    CJs Filler Cap 301120.jpg

    Had a SlingSHot Racing cap installed previously but found that the filler wouldn't allow the tank to breathe... The second fuel spray shower convinced me to reinstall the OEM filler cap...

    Now CJ Designs, gorgeous product engineering! :thumb

    I'd been thinking about that myself.

    My Google pixel died in Wyoming. Don't know if it was vibration or rain. Replaced it with the ulefone 7. Water and vibration proof.

    I've gone through about 5 pixel phone cameras... Still haven't learned my lesson. I think I just use it as an excuse to buy a new phone.

    Thanks for the tip... I'll check out that brand.

    Looks like a nice phone... But apparently doesn't play well with google fi. Not really interested in changing everything at this point... Damn, I must be getting old, old people hate change. :p

    Keep your phone in your pocket and put a cheap rugged phone (I have a Ulefone Armor x5) on the bars/dash

    FYI I have a 4 year old Motorola X4 and a two year old G7 and I just can't kill them. Semi water proof and no image stabilisation. I run them on the 790 and the 500 paint shaker. Both do great gps work with a free data card on Google, if you have that plan. I think the G7 is only about $150 new. Halfway decent phones too. Camera mediocre.

    The Kyocera DuraForce also has some real durability chops; quite a few "phone navigators" using them. Coupled with the powered Juice Squeeze it makes a formable option to a dedicated gps.

    Since we are talking phones for GPS, does anybody use the RAM mount wireless charger?

    My biggest problem has been USB cables failing, so wireless charging is attractive.

    The phone is my only nav device. The primary app i use is Garmin Explorer. Works with no network from the phones GPS. I've used it on the CDT and CBDR with no problems.
    I do carry a spare cable. I melted one by dropping it on the exhaust while getting gas. Didn't notice until I was ready to leave, melted by then.
    Not sure what brand my mount is, but its very secure. Has its own power switch with an led so at night I remember to turn it off. I like being able to recharge the intercom while eating lunch with the bike off. N 1104121315.jpg

    Is there a decent pigtail you can plug into the rear for an "always on" usb plug?

    According to the wiring diagram there is a connector back there other than one of the ACC connectors that was intended to be for USB use. Don't remember if it was switched or not. I also don't know if it is 5V or simply another 12V outlet that is meant to be connected to a USB adapter. It's so easy to use one of the ACC connectors I didn't bother trying to figure it out.
