Bike computer for weather radar map

  1. I think what we need for the Thursday's Mystery Ride during Winter is for the leader to have a bike mounted computer to see where the rain clouds are via the BOM website and lead us around the clouds so we don't get wet.

    Can you get such a thing?

  2. Mobile phone
  3. Soft, JO, soft.
  4. Don't see you out there :wink:

    I think we know what tough is, and it sure aint riding in the rain, lol

    Plus I've crashed the rain more times than you've had hot dinners.
  5. well, you need a phone with network access (3G / et al), and a web browser. Don't need flash player, but you probably do need a browser w/ decent javascript support.

    That you don't mind getting wet :)
  6. Here you go, this is basically the same thing you're talking about

  7. BOM site works well on my mobile ;)
  8. my tomtom keeps me updated with the weather as well as navigation on my nokia n82.
