  1. Yes I suppose "washout" is an issue if you ride...

    Yes I suppose "washout" is an issue if you ride during the day when the sun is at it's apex. I use my phone mounted on my dash in my car. One of the issues that I've noticed is that the Otter case...
  2. Thanks for the info on the BT / ANT situation....

    Thanks for the info on the BT / ANT situation. The rest of what you wrote I couldn't of said better myself. :thumb:

    At the OP; One of the two has to go, either the lamp or the computer. If you're...
  3. Wireless computer being used....The easiest way...

    Wireless computer being used....The easiest way to fix this is to use a "wired computer". The other option is to move the lights as far away from the computer as possible.

    Although it's never...
  4. I know I can't speak for others but if I was...

    I know I can't speak for others but if I was riding a paved bike path or trail and someone was approaching me with an INSANE amount of light going I'd probably be forced to stop and turn my head. ...
  5. Indeed, this is the best advice I've heard yet....

    Indeed, this is the best advice I've heard yet. Yeah, it's be cool to have a super bright bike light but if you're really into riding trails at night you will quickly discover that anything over 1500...
  6. This is a good point point to make. Certainly if...

    This is a good point point to make. Certainly if I were to buy another rear lamp that used AAA or AA's I would certainly be sure to test for this.

    Oddly enough, now that I think about it I have...
  7. Uh...I don't think so. I don't own a Radbot. You...

    Uh...I don't think so. I don't own a Radbot. You might have me confused with someone else. I do however own a couple PBSF. The Superflash ( when first released ) added a new dimension to cycling...

    I did this just a couple weeks ago. I planned a pretty long route only to find that once I started it that it was quite hilly and on that particular day I really wasn't feeling it. In my case I just...

    Yes, the Consumercellular plans look to be very affordable. If you have a phone that works on the AT&T frequecies ( GSM ) it will work otherwise you need to get a phone that will work with the GSM...

    In keeping with the opening post: It can't hurt to have the rear reflector as a back up. That said I don't use one on mine. Like others I use two rear lights. My main rear lamp is so bright that all...
  11. Yes, correct. Assuming that if one chose to buy a...

    Yes, correct. Assuming that if one chose to buy a ( smart ) phone and use it as a phone ( with a service provider ) I would think that they would require a data plan. I can't speak for other...
  12. From what you've said; You have two basic choices...

    From what you've said; You have two basic choices for on-board navigation, but....as has been said by the others, creating routes is best done on one of the websites that allow DIY route planning and...
  13. The plastic piece with the hooks is replaceable....

    The plastic piece with the hooks is replaceable. You can also buy better quality O-rings. The better O-rings look to be made of silicon. I own both the rubber and the silicon types but I've never...

    What I meant to convey with my last comment was that not everyone will ride in an area ( or in dangerous traffic patterns ) that would necessarily mandate having a good horn. As such it wouldn't make...

    About the "Loud" bicycle horn; Certainly sounds loud enough. Ugly it is but I figure if you ride in an area where you feel "that" threatened it would be an alternative worth considering. Another...

    Yeah, back in the day I relied on just cue sheets and my trusty cycle computer ( for distance ). Still there are things that take you by surprise, namely closed roads and bridges or roads that seem...

    Wishful thinking. The more accurate statement would be, "It is something you will try your best to never have happen again". ~~~ We're all human and being human we make mistakes, even when we try our...

    Some thoughts to add to the mix; You could also take one of the self-contained ( Li-ion) rear blinkies and run an external phone charging battery. Works with my Moon Shield and Cygolite Hotshot and...
  19. Well, it turns out I just got a replacement of...

    Well, it turns out I just got a replacement of the same phone I had. I figured if I started getting picky that I'd probably end up spending more than I can afford. Besides if I start shopping for...

    I had to quote myself here because well, it seems fitting as you will soon see. Odd how the situations in life turn on you at times. Must be part of that karma that kicks in when you start telling...

    @OP....Sometimes bad stuff just happens. I've had the same thing happen before but with less expensive objects. Since I also drive for a living I face the same danger at work. The lesson I learned...

    You might want to get in touch with one of the Xeccon vendors. I've used mtbRevolution, an Aussie based vendor who has a good reputation. For a short period I was given some of their lamps to test...

    Okay! Yeah!, you can DIY! I plan to do the very thing but even so....I'm going to feel obligated to donate at least a tenner to OSM for running the website that gives me the free map. Hopefully by...

    I think you're missing the point. When you buy a Garmin I believe you have the option to buy it with maps ( City Navigator on an SD card ) or you can buy without an SD card or map ( for people who...
  25. I think if you buy one of the Garmins that...

    I think if you buy one of the Garmins that display maps and you don't have the Garmin City Navigator maps, you would be best buying the one of the SD cards sold by RWGPS ( Ride with GPS ) that have...
