so after a weekend riding all over the isle of man totalling just over 300 miles in 3 days i'm very happy overall with this. very easy to use, easy to see on the move & follow the directions. buttons are easy to press with gloves. couple of nice bonus features i didn't know were going to be there; a gps speedo readout screen, a clock screen and a screen to show elapsed ride time & mileage. just a shame these are only available when you have a route plotted, be nice to have those work regardless so the device could just be used as a speedo or clock. i also like that it saves the route you actually took and the one you planned (see pic below). the elastic mount is also very solid, after 6-7 hours of bumpy roads it didn't budge at all.
only significant downside - it drained the battery on my iphone 6 in just over 4 hours of riding. not sure if i was doing something wrong here or not but that's a problem if that's how it works. Also you cant switch it off during a rest without ending the ride which isn't ideal. this means its sat still using battery life while you're having lunch for example. when you switch it back on you can resume the ride where you left off but the saved ride file is now in separate pieces.
