Many of us by now have an Apple iPhone. Statistically speaking, just by the shear numbers, chances are many of us have one. And let's face it, they have some pretty nifty apps running. GPS navigation (TomTom, Navigon, Google Maps, etc), police speed trap warnings (Trapster Open link in a new window), social media geo-localization (Foursquare Open link in a new window, etc), you name it, we use it a lot.

Note: If you're interested in a detailed comparison between all navigation apps on the iPhone, click here to access PocketGPSWorld Open link in a new window.

But putting an iPhone on the handlebars of your motorcycle is slightly more complicated. Its dimensions are not that of a normal GPS, and bicycle attachments don't work on a motorcycle, thanks to the (slightly) higher speeds and vibrations. But rest assured, there are some devices that allow you to take & use your precious iPhone with your on your motorcycle.

4Lock iPhone Motorcycle
4Lock Open link in a new window is one of them. Made by Italian engineering firm Evotek, it's a nicely designed handlebar mounting system for the iPhone. Weighing only 130 grams, it attaches itself to your bike's handlebars using an adjustable bracket, a one-size-fits-all. There's an area in the cradle that allows for you to place a 12V power lead if you have one on your motorcycle (as we all know by now, the iPhone runs out of juice real quick, so a battery charger is highly recommended).

You can place your iPhone (up to the 3G version at least, I have no idea is the 4th generation one fits) into the cradle with only one hand, and slide the plastic cover of the phone.

This way your phone is protected from rain and dirt, and you can still manipulate the screen.

It's not expensive, and available to buy on the internet.

Cost: €35.00
Availability: Now
