Do you use smartphone or PPC while riding?

Hello everybody. We are doing a little research about how many bikers are carrying smartphones or pocket pc's around while riding and maybe also use them for some training purposes?

The thing is most of us in VITO Technology are really crazy about biking. As we develop software for smartphones, pocket pc's and some mobile phones with Symbian OS we have also developed a software for sport that goes great with biking: VITO ActiveTrace. It allows you to:
  • record your tracks
  • navigate along the tracks
  • collect the detailed statistics for trips
  • display tracks and stats on-line
  • set pushpins
  • send your coordinates to friends via sms
  • display your friends' coordinates
So, we'd like to know if this software is of any use to you and whether you have a Windows Mobile smartphone or Pocket PC, or else a Nokia S60/S80, Sony Ericsson 910/900/800?

You can find editional info about VITO ActiveTrace at its

Next question.

Two wheels good. Four wheels bad.

Oooh glad someone asked this because it means I'm not the only person thinking about this.

I've got the HP iPaq 6515 and am considering wether it'll be easy or not to handlebar mount it as it's got built in GPS.

I wouldn't use it. I had a Toshiba A5506 for a year with GPS and never used it. I just bought a Casio w41ca with the same plus more and I won't be using the GPS in it either. GPS is standard on probably every mobile phone here. My cycle computer is all I require.
