I've been asked about my waterproof mobile phone holder a lot so I thought I'd record the details here for posterity.



Here's some links to the Boxit holders.

I can vouch for it too. I went from sarf London to Manchester on Sunday and back last night, Monday, so, as you can imagine, got pretty wet. The Boxit stood up to the challenge (more than my supposedly waterproof boots did).
I happen to have a spare one with handlebar fitting I bought thinking my iRiver might fit in it, so if someone want one (the larger size), PM me with an offer.

Are you connecting the phone to an Autocom/Starcom system? If so, how are you connecting up the cables?

I bought Aquapack cases for an MP3 player and my phone and have punctured the cases to get the cables through :?

I concentrate on what's ahead basically.
The phone is connected to the Autocom so if it rings I hear it.

so, does the bluetooth thing connect to the Autocom, or to... well what
I have the Starcom system. The phone can either connect direct via a cable or you can buy a bluetooth connection instead. This is about an inch square and plugs in instead of the phone lead. You pair the phone with the blue tooth connector the same way you 'd pair the phone with any other handsfree headset.
When someone rings, it rings in the headset, cutting out anything else you may have playing (MP3, radio etc) and you can answer the call and hear what they are saying (and they can hear you) at 90mph no problems.
My phone is an ericsson, which uses a little joystick to navigate, so I can't easily use it inside the Boxit. That limits me to phoning only the last number dialled. But I'm always stopped when I want to make a call anyway so it's not a great problem.

Of course, a lot of phones nowadays have voice activation.

My Ericsson P910 sits insided the tank bag, when someone rings me, the phone speaks the name that I recorded into the phone so I know who it is. If I say answer, the phone answers.

To ring, you say the "key word" you recorded, then the name of the person you want and the phone does everything else, pretty cool.

But I agree that it can get too much if you're not used to it. My first time to the Chelsea Bridge meet I had the GPS giving me directions and the mp3 player playing nice chilled out music. All was fine, then the wife rang, at which point I stopped because I couldn't concentrate.

Of course, if you do it a lot you'll be able to cope just fine
