check out mapdroyd. lets ya pre download maps for your state in case ya cant get cell signal for google maps/navigate. its vector based rather than tiles so its also pretty tiny. leaving more room for mp3s and photos.
seems to work for me better than map area in google maps.

on the iphone i havent found a better map app than motionX gps. its tile based so maps tend to get big. but has topo and noaa maps.
wish i could find something as nice for android.

back on topic: the ram universal holder can also be adapted to the tank ring fairly easily. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/New-Adjustable-Tank-Mount-Camera-GPS-Phone-SUZUKI-_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem4aacb4f8abQQitemZ320725121195QQptZMotorcyclesQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories#ht_4396wt_937

Those are neat, but i Gota hand it to thevram mount, its sturdy as hell, that tank one looks kinda cheap. Also, Google maps allows caching and downloading map areas, which works pretty good if you know what your doing. I also use giaa maps. Nice app

yeah google maps does allow caching. prefetch is limited to a 10 mile radius of each point selected unless im missing that setting.

Yep, plan your route. Here's my setups



The Suzuki valusia intruder has it smack in the middle and that works the best, took it to Maryland like that

Sloz, the area your in is cached already. And you can download i think 10 areas as of now. So that's 100 square miles. Google's working on giving us more. :)
