Yep! I have a cover for it. The cover for my GSX-R1000s fit nicely onto the Hyperstrada. It's covered even when it's at home in the garage. Just keeps stuff from getting on the bike. Dust, drippings, etc.


I think I'm going with this setup here: Waterproof Tough Mount Case For IPhone 7

I use the cover to keep stuff from being stolen, and the bike left alone.

Learned this from a guy who always left his gear on the bike while parked in urban areas, without any issues.

There is also a handle bar iphone mount I saw on IG that I was looking at getting. I'll try to find it again and send the info.

Nice. And that R&G is $80 vs $160 for the EvoTech.

Something to consider for sure.

Thank You!

My UA waterproof case held up well for over a year. The outer screen works OK with touch capable gloves, but it will get scratched if you use it a lot. The large clamp finally broke from use but I was in the market for a new phone. I went with the RAM because I bought a S8 and it's waterproof. My big gripe with the RAM is that I have to position my phone with one set of arms very close to the bottom edge of the phone or it presses buttons on both sides of the phone.

I've done both and will offer that when you lose reception with your phone, navigating simply follows where you are if you didn't download the local maps to your phone so it can continue navigating.

I'm not yet a big Garmin bootcamp fan, Googlemaps is easier and works better but the GPS units do things the phone doesn't like record where you've been to turn into a future route that you stumbled upon.

Can you do it with a phone now, I'd say more than ever but the GPS works for as long as it sees satellites. Hope this helps...

Osmand and HERE are 2 of a few apps that operate purely via phone gps. You do have to download maps, but they pretty much cover the entire world.

On Android devices, you can turn on an option that lets you use GPS without network reception. I almost exclusively use Waze, and it works fine when out of network coverage. You do lose warnings and notices, obviously.

I don't do a lot of cross country trips on my HS, but I need tunes/ podcasts as much as nav. Why not do this all via BT on a single device? Smartphone updated navigation is superior to any standalone unit these days. Waze crowd-sourced re-routing is superb and police notifications are on point.

I just used Tom Tom Go on a Samsung waterproof Edge to ride across the country. I used the Tom Tom offline maps and the thing worked great with or without data coverage.
