Hi,

Anyone bought a good bike mount for the G3 yet? I bought the item listed here on Ebay;
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Water-Resi...item5d4d46fc7e
However when riding it tends to slowly drop down and move about on my handlebar's I can stop and re-tighten it but it's a pain in the arse to keep having to do that.
Ideally, Id like it to be waterproof don't really plan on using it the rain but in UK is easy to get caught out.

Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Looks like the handlebar attachment can't be tightened enough. Are you strapping it onto a metal section of your handlebars? If so the dimpling inside the plastic strap probably doesn't get any grip on the smooth metal. If you strap it over something with a bit more friction it might do better - maybe just putting a circle of tape on the handlebars to strap it over would be enough extra grip?

Other than that it looks a decent case - how much does it affect the touchscreen sensitivity?

Yeah you're right it just slips on the smooth metal, I did try adding some tape and padding to add friction but didn't really help unfortunately.

Touchscreen is more or less unusable tbh, swipes work okish but taps are pretty much useless. I do have a screen protector on also so that probably don't help either but it's pretty bad.

Hmm, not really a recommendation then?

I was using one that was a small bag attached to the frame&handlebar post, which at least guaranteed it would hold on well, but the viewing position isn't as good as a handlebar mount. Unfortunately, my G3 won't fit!
