I've got an LG G Watch and I use the voice command to navigate myself when I'm at junctions.

 

"Okay Google, Navigate to ____" works most of the time :)

Technology really helps improve our biking experience nowadays.

Using Sony Xperia Z2 with Sygic for GPS, the phone is waterproof and the screen is sunlight readable. I can pair with my uclear bluetooth receiver to listen to instructions. Thers is glove mode which I can touch screen when wearing my gloves. Ifs almost a phone design for riders.

How long can Z2 last with sygic? 5-6 hours? Thanks.

Have not tried navigating for so long, but the phone battery capacity 3200mah is the biggest available in the market for 5.2" smart phone, I recharge every 1.5 days under heavy usage of video streaming (4-5 hours of drama), web surfing etc.

I have tried Garmins Nuvi in Aqua boxes, Zumos and the now popular Montana.

Nuvi - Cheap but cannot read well and difficult to operate with gloves.

Zumo - Almost all there but sound quality is poor (mono)

Montana - Can take with you and works on Android.

BUT ALL THE ABOVE does not take calls directly.

 

Sony Xperia Z paired to my bluetooth (MIC) headset- Is my choice. On RAM mounts.

I use downloaded maps (not google and waze) like Sygic and am trying 'Here' developed by Nokia.

 

Voice activated dialing and reads text to Voice message, so if from Big Boss, I can stop and text back, as though I am in the office.

You got the MY/SG paid Sygic? So it works without tapping to data roaming?

Sorry late reply...

Yes, it does not need data connection. IIRC sygic is now free and maps are updated once in a while.

Garmin is available as an app on apple and android as well. Both the Montana and Monterra runs on Andriod OS. Garmin also owns Navigon.

There's an app called 'HERE' which is free and feature downloaded maps, ie can use when touring. This was developed for Nokia but now available to all....FREE!

 

For all apps, Data connection is required however if you search POIs and other spots from the web.

 

Hope this helps.
