 +Here are two different mounts I use on my bikes. One is a dual sports bike (Suzuki DR), the other is a sport touring bike (BMW R1100S). Both have different handle bars and are mounted differently.

-There are two types or smartphone mounts, either your smartphone is in a waterproof case, it is only held by a grip mechanism. The benefit of the waterproof case is that your phone is protected from water and dirt. On the other hand they might make it harder to read the screen and during a hot summer day smartphones tend to overheat. A smartphone that overheats can behave anywhere from funny to frustrating. My smartphone's GPS sensor turns wild when overheating and puts me anywhere on the map except for my actual position. Other smartphones might simply reboot, which could mean a forced stop. In addition the waterproof mounts tend to be a bit more expensive. If you buy a waterproof mount, check if there is an option to insert your charging cable into the case.+There are two types or smartphone mounts, either your smartphone is in a waterproof case, it is only held by a grip mechanism.

You can also use audio only to navigate, just connect your headphones and start the navigation. Enjoy your rides with Kurviger.
