Phone in a £10 waterproof case and waterproof boat 12v socket.
  You can't beat a paper map to get the feel of the country side.
 However the all singing and dancing motorcycle sat navs definitely have their place.

Dustin, agreed, they all have their merits and always good to familiarise with a map even when using a sat nav, be it a phone app or dedicated. There are issues with the way the different devices obtain their data so good to have the options available. Bike already has 12v socket fitted all be it a DIN spec. Looking like I'll pick up a Tomtom with the help of me Christmas bonus.

I tried the Bonnie Tyler one but it kept telling me to turn around, then it fell apart.

Your nickname Bright Eyes then Steve ?.

Well after eventually sorting out a suitable mounting option the Tomtom is in use and I can say I'm quite impressed so far. Just need to get out into unfamiliar teritory to put it through its paces.
