Sweet as GPS with offline maps free.!

Recommended Posts

So I decided to get a brand new rugged (IP68) android phone. Blackview is the brand. Cost me about $180 delivered. No need for Sim ..use wifi to phone hotspot if required but not need as all maps are offline using LocusMaps.

 

Was using a ram mount but just changed to quadlock..let's see how that goes.!

 

 

The ram mount worked quite well but was a bit bulky for my liking.

That looks good. I usually track my rides with Runkeeper as it is easy enough for me to work out.

Can you explain what I need to download to use Locusmaps with my phone and get those maps. They look good.

Google Play > locus maps.

 

Easy

 

There is a pro version which has no ads...well worth it.

 

There is no iPhone equivalent or anything like it. If you have an iPhone...buy a cheap android to use just for maps. I don't know how carmine and Tom Tom are still in business when you come late costs and features.

Do you need a special license to drive all that kit? Arksing for a friend.
 
Haha . So the story goes like this..

- the spot tracker..set n forget.
- the BMW GPS... useless (Garmin crappy unit) ..just got it because is reads info from the bike ..speed, temps etc. $1100 ... robbery! Never again
- the unit top let is my main phone ... Before I got back into dirt bikes...I would use locus maps on that. Galaxy note 8.
- got the blackview BV8000s because it is rugged and cheap and Android..locus maps.

If I had my time over .I wouldn't have got the framing GPS with the bike..and the blackview Android phone would be where the Garmin is.

Easy
