why buy that when iPhone 11 is on sale for $1,100 ?
and it's so advanced you have to take the gloves off to use it
but seriously, 380 CAD is a great deal
How is your 396 in direct sunlight?I have this Zumo. It’s been flawless. If it ever breaks I’d buy it again. I like my phone in my pocket where it’s safe.
How is your 396 in direct sunlight?
I used a new Zumo XT for 45 minutes.
Was very easy to read at 100% brightness.
(Zumo XT will only run a short time without dedicated power being hooked up. It goes to 40% for a few minutes, then auto shuts down. I didn't like that.)
I had a zumo 550. It died. Using a garmin car gps atm, and liking the 396 price. Tnx!
I disagree with that.It's probably safer in a dedicated phone holder than your pocket.
I disagree with that.
While riding, your body does a great job isolating the phone from vibration and impact. The vast majority of mounts do not (they are intentionally rigid so the screen isn't vibrating and hard to read).
In a crash, the forces go really high and I haven't seen a mount that I would trust to hold a phone, therefore your phone is flying free. Now not only is it unprotected, you have no bleeping idea where it is. If it's in your pocket, it has a little protection and you know exactly where it is (with you in the ditch).
While I like waze for a lot of reasons, on a bike a phone is always in the same zippered pocket. If I want to run waze, that is a second phone.
I got made fun of here, for saying that you shouldn't carry hex keys in your pockets, decades ago.Nothing ever goes in pants pockets for that reason. Jacket pockets against my belly to try to avoid pressure points.
