OsmAnd on iPhone is something of a battery eater (plus the screen). I tried it hoping for it to be a viable navigation solution but on a 5s with a brand new battery only around 2hrs!

Ended-up buying an Elemnt and it's brilliant.

Re: Amazing Bike Alarm for the price

are they not a tad easy to remove? They are vibration sensitive so removing them will set them off (hopefully - yet to try mine). When I 1st got mine I tried it up under the saddle and it fitted hidden up there across the two rails, bit of a fiddle to get in but a few cable ties and even if assaila...

Re: GPX onto iOS - apologies for my stupidity.

An iPhone 4 is getting quite old and I'm not sure what apps would still be supporting it. But ignoring older iPhone support, you need to consider what is in the file you are sending (the gpx). Are you expecting turn by turn directions? does the gpx you created include turn by turn directions? Are yo...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

.....we knew EXACTLY what we were voting for...... Yes, we voted not to pay the EU £350m a week ... except the Government Chief statistician then said This confuses gross and net contributions..... It is a clear misuse of official statistics. Yet Boris and the Leave Campaigns just kept on using it....

Re: Should items be offered in the For Sale section which are only available for purchase elsewhere ?

I don't use eBay but thought it was often used more as an auction site, buyers outbidding each other so the seller gets the best price. So selling for a fixed price here vs a bidding system on eBay where the seller has a far wider market. So a link here could be thought of more as being informative ...

Re: Getting the Garmin 820 Explorer to do turn by turn navigation

Thanks for your replies. Just so I understand your correctly, you are both converting GPXs posted on on various web sites and exports from Strava,to TCX. In which case I can do likewise with my turn by turn test route. ..... In my case I'm using an Wahoo Elemnt which is apparently very different fr...

Re: Con of the Week?

I think the image is pandering to Trump's ego. He loves being on the cover of magazines, loved having everybody talking about him, loves being the centre of attention.

But as image, it is intended to illustrate a point. It's what many images do. And it does successfully illustrate the point.

Re: Getting the Garmin 820 Explorer to do turn by turn navigation

I'm no expert (and use a Wahoo) but have you tried a .tcx? I used https://cycle.travel exporting as a TCX Course and it worked perfectly (on the Wahoo).

...once my legs went they stayed went as far as hills were concerned but I could slog along the flat bits for hours. ..... I noticed the same. Any hill became a challenge but then level was a relief. I was a bit ambitious with the mileage, and then when I got to the last 10 miles realised I'd not c...

Re: Loaded Camping Gear Weight

Consider swapping the solar panel for a front dyno hub? That was my original plan but I can get what looks like a descent solar panel for £50 whereas a hub costs a bit more. Plus I can hang a solar panel on my tent when not on the move (I'll probably be on shorter distances than most seasoned toure...

Re: Loaded Camping Gear Weight

Done a short 3 day trip and ... 17.5Kg plus water. But that included a 2Kg D-lock (last minute I wanted something to be a visual deterrent and I'll be finding a better solution). I did include everything I'd need for longer term (e.g. 2 pairs of non-cycling clothes, 2 sets of cycling cloths (one wor...
