hi Folks

anyone used a car TomTom on their bike

I have a couple of old ones and wondered how they would stand up to being used mounted on the bike

weather issues in the rain, vibration etc.

cheers Mike

I use a car TomTom. Occasionally it shuts down with the damp. But it has to be really hammering it down.

I've used an old Garmin for years, whack a clear sandwich bag on it and a zip te. Jobs a good 'un

I've used a tomtom, worked well but I had it in a cheep case off eBay so it wasn't open to the elements. I also used my battery power pack thing because it's only good for a couple of hours of not chargeing. (Not fitted a USB charger to the bike yet)
