GPS on 6v bike
« on: 27.04. 2016 17:01 »
I've found a way of using my GPS on the, (6v) Beeza. I've bought one of these power packs:

I've also got one of these waterproof GPS cases that fits on the handlebar:

The touch screen works fine through the plastic window

There is not room for the battery pack and GPS together in that case so I've got a long charging USB lead and I plan to put the power pack in my pocket to begin with but I may fit it into the toolbox with a waterproof cable gland later.

Unfortunately The Garmin Nuvi 3597LM doesn't have an earphone socket and I don't think its Bluetooth will work with a BT earpiece; it would be very useful to hear the voice.
