Don't know about anyone else but for the only one I use is calimoto, its decent when free and if you want to get the premium version its 7 or 8 quid so all yous spending 100s on sat navs to my mind are wasting money which could be spent on other things
Its better when its loaded

I didn't want to have my phone or a big sat nav on the handlebars. The small neat size of the beeline was what got me interested. I'll let you all know if it's any good :thumb:

I wouldn't say the Β£450 I spent on my sat nav was a waste!

Once you have had a bike specific sat nav you won't go back

There was once a mod who said they was happy with their phone till they got a Garmin isn't that right @Hoggs

To be fair if I need to weld anything I'll just take it to work so don't really need to get one

I got one of these - great bit of kit, looks good (I swapped for a silver one with the metal mount), absolute bare minimum information to avoid me getting lost without anything that can get me distracted. Fair play to anyone who can memorise maps or who can tune out incoming texts/calls/notifications etc., but I'd end up riding off the side of a hill if I tried to use my phone on the bike :)

At the risk of pointing out the obvious if you need to plan the route on a smartphone why wouldn't you just use that? I have mine in my pocket and 1 earphone in so I get the audio directions and I can't say I've ever had an issue with that. I'd much rather have audio to follow than a tiny arrow on the bars.

It's fine in town but if you don't protect your hearing on long distances you'll damage it.

If that works for you then great, but I personally don't get on with audio navigation because it is constantly telling you even when you don't need the prompts 99% of the time, and it feels like an interruption to me too. I want to switch off as much as possible when I'm on the bike, but if I need a bit of guidance on which junction to take, or I'm wondering how long until the next turning etc., I can choose to look at the dial. I'm not using it for any complicated city navigation or anything though, so that is worth bearing in mind.
