    Just curious if anyone has done this yet...

    I ride my bikes (bicycle and motorcycle) quite a bit and have questioned whether or not to purchase a GPS solution (like TomTom) and fabricate a cradle for the Treo to rest on my handlebars as I ride.

    This would work, surely, although I'm afraid the bumpiness and rough ride may not be good for the unit.

    ...Just wondering if anyone has done this yet?

    Treo 300 (x2), 600 (x3), 650 (x6), 700p (ROM'd to 755p)
    My Custom Black-Tie 700p
    Sprint, 750 AT, Unl N/W @ 7pm, Unl Roaming/Power Vision/Pix/Txt/M2M, $46/mo.

    I have in the past used Tom Tom on my bicycle. I didnt bother with a cradle (because I didnt want to look like a plonker), I set the route and put the Treo650 and Bluetooth GPS unit in my backpack, and connected the earphones to the treo, you can adjust the volume within TomTom. - I cant see the screen but I can hear the route commentary which is good enough for navigation on a bicycle.

    There's a couple of threads on the topic already. I have teased Seidio about the interest in such a product. I have avoided pursuinbg myself as there just isn't a good trail biking software program. Delorme has the Topo series but not even their CS people have any idea about using with handhelds.

    I use my iQue 2600 for GPS navigation on the motorcycle. There are RAM mounts, but they provide no protection from the elements. There is a product called an OtterBox that provides all weather protection, but unsure if they have one for the Treo....most likely they do. For my iQue, I place it inside the clear plastic map pocket on top of my tank bag. I also have wired up a 12 volt accessory outlet under the motorcycle's seat so I can power any 12 volt this case the iQue's auto cradle. Again, similar to what you can get for the Treo.
