Proper device; Handheld, Automotive or Motorcycle?
The responses will be as individualized as tires and oil, but for me, I run a cheap Garmin Nuvi full time. I also use my old Note3 phone when trying to find the spot-on-the-spot, or an individual off road trail or track someone has shared with me. If you opt for a cheap Garmin Nuvi, perhaps a non-current or refurb, check with someone like GPS City . com first to make sure they make a RAM cradle for it to make mounting it easier.
I don't run both devices simultaneously at highway speed, I don't want the distraction. I am enjoying LOCUS MAP PRO on the smart phone, but still learning.
Ride safe when running "devices", and avoid playing with them at speed!
Thanks. Purchased a Garmin on Ebay. Look forward to first ride.
I'm using a Alcatel Raven smartphone... $29 at Walmart, as a no contract TracFone.
No cell service needed... simply download OSMand while on a wifi network.
OSMand on my Samsung S8. Works for me. I am using a XGrip phone mount with RAM components. It will take a heck of a beating. A phone sized auxiliary battery in my tank bag will run the phone for 3 days without a recharge.
