GPS Motorcycle Riding

Since I haven’t bought a RAM mount yet for my KTM Superduke, I decided to try a different way of navigating. On a scooter, it’s always easy to pause and check directions on a phone. On a motorbike, it’s a lot more difficult.

I paired my Bluetooth headphones with my phone, and started the navigation directions by Google Maps. I have to say that it worked very well, especially on the expressways, where it’s actually not possible to stop in Taipei.

Google Maps didn’t have very recent updates about local construction on roads, and it was the start of a 3-day weekend, so it actually took longer to leave Banciao than to get to Guandu. This was partly down to my own fault. I hadn’t expected a lot of traffic at Xinpu near the interchange.

I’m definitely doing it again, if I’m going to a place that I’m not sure of. The earphones just barely fit under my AGV Pista GP, but other than that, it was great.
