Great way to use your iPhone while riding.
on 26 April 2011
I love this product, but it's not perfect.
It fits just about anywhere you'd like it to with everything you need to fit it in the box, installing it on the bike is a breeze. It's got inserts for most of the newer models of iPhone and the touch works well through the case. Adjusting the brightness before fitting it in is key though, as auto brightness will turn it almost to black once the sensor is covered, so that's a good tip. I've not actually had it in rain yet, and to be honest, I've got it to just have that little bit of security if it does rain, or traveling through a ford, you won't have to worry to much.
One issue is that the little cover for the headphone jack, is quick fiddly, and came off the case itself with almost no effort. the piece now lives in my bag and if I'll ever again be able to find it. So I'm sure that effects the water tight aspects of the case. Also, the mechanism that holds the case to the bike wasn't very strong. It's all made of plastic, and as I tightened it it would strip the cable and wouldn't tighten any more. so I've got it as tight as I can go, but it still twists pretty easily which is a slight worry.
But over all, if you want to use your iPhone while you're riding for mapping or tracking your routes, I highly recommend this.
