Re: Swiss-TET

As far as I know (e.g. read on the forums) the swiss TET is mainly paved, and yes this seems to be a general issue in central Europe. Due to highly developed infrastructure and high population densities its rare to find legal offroad tracks. In the european periphery and eastern Europe thats a diffe...

Re: In Austria [emoji1038] Now

Someone based in or somewhere around Graz? Would be great to ride together or at least share legal off road tracks.

Re: Osmand on iPhone 6s gpx import troubles..

Hey, my answer might come late, but maybe it can still be helpful. For me it works the following way: 1. Open pop-up Menu on the left 2. Choose "my Trips" 3. Choose "All Trips". There it should appear.

Re: Smartphone & Mount for TET (and road navigation)

Hi, yes please send me some photos. I'm also curious about your plastic protection bag, wondering how that works. You're sending me pm here on the forum, right?

Re: Smartphone & Mount for TET (and road navigation)

That probably depends on how you use it. I sometimes do 10 hour rides. I always have my display on and some navigation apps need a lot of juice. I highly doubt that an average phone battery could last that long in those conditions. I'm guessing more like 2 hours. Lets say I'm on the way home and it ...

Re: Smartphone & Mount for TET (and road navigation)

Hey guys, thanks for your answers. @Staubteufelchen: Having a second battery is a nice idea. However I think there are few phones with a removable battery. Even so, I would need a separate battery charger (does that even exist nowadays?) and also changing batteries in the rain really sucks. @Meetche...

Re: X grip mount and / or cat s30 phone

Guys, how do you charge your phones in case it rains? Waterproof phones either have rubber plugs for the charge port or turn the charge port off when wet. I need my navigation to work during rain also...

Re: Smartphone & Mount for TET (and road navigation)

Hey guys, In the meantime I've been using a handlebar mounted phone bag as described in the previous post, fixed to the handlebars, temporarily using a power bank for testing. As anticipated, the bag does accumulate moisture when being left outside over longer periods of time. I will test if silica ...

Re: Galaxy Samsung Tab Active 2 as nav device

Guys, how are you dealing with charging? Most rugged phones have a rubber plug for the USB port, e.g. USB isn't waterproof, or in newer samsung or apple phones, the charge port will be disabled when wet. For me however its very important that the whole thing works in rain, because thats actually the...

Smartphone & Mount for TET (and road navigation)

Hey guys, I need a way to get a smartphone onto my handlebar for navigation. I'm willing to get a dedicated phone for that job, however the purpouse of the whole thing is to keep investments low. The following are my requirements: -> Should be able to charge while on the bike in any weather conditio...
