Amazon should remove this product.
The Tigra case was fitted in minutes and the mechanism that holds the mount to the handlebars is very effective. The case itself then slides into place and locks. Although on the video for this case it looks like the clip to seal the unit is a bit flimsy I can ensure you its not. It's actually a very good firm click when it locks the lid shut. The screen operates perfectly well and you are able to navigate the iPhone through the plastic cover with ease. There is a rubber cap that can be taken off in order to get to your headphone port and room in the base to allow charging whilst keeping the iPhone in the holder. (Not sure why you would need it but its there).
My only complaint is not related to this product as such but more the applications I am using with it. (Although a slight change to the product would help). I am using apps like TRAILS for the iPhone. This is a great application that allows you to not only track your progress and plot your route on the map, but import maps down to the phone to be followed. The problem is a lot of these apps use the light sensor to detect whether you have put the phone in your pocket, at which point they shut down the screen to save battery. The issue is the light sensor on the iPhone is now concealed behind the plastic cover of the Tigra holder. This means you can't follow the map on screen once the phone is secured in the holder. (The screen blanks thinking you've put the phone away). As I said this is not Tigra's fault but maybe if they're reading this they can do a slight modification to their design to uncover the light sensor which would help a lot.
First time out, everything was fitted as instructed and it failed.
Interesting thing is, it was the swivel mechanism that just snapped, not even a part the user is responsible for fitting.
Absolute garbage, though the actual iPhone holder once it stopped bouncing did protect my iPhone from damage.
I think this holder is a bit expensive for what it is but so far no problems.
I can easily operate my iphone through the cover, and so far I've used it on road trips as well as some off road trails. I do get nervous when on very bumpy terrain but so far the console has stayed well and truly put.
It started raining yesterday whilst I was out on my bike(not really heavy but enough rain to notice) and my iphone stayed nice and dry.
It's so great being able to see my iphone straight in front of me rather than having to stop and take it out of my bag every 10 mins. I use it with some wireless earphones so I can even take calls whilst cycling! I'd definitely recommend to anyone looking for a bike mount.
Over a 10 day tour with a pretty mixed bag of weather this product performed superbly, although I did have to apply some tape over the plug which closes access to the audio jack on the phone.
My only criticism would be that it is clearly aimed at official Apple cables rather than some of the other brands available on the market.
All in all an excellent product for mountain bike or motorbike!
