A Cellphone for Bicyclists- There must be one!
My current phone is an LG Dare and it one of my all time favorites but still a long way from what I want when touring. I’d like an iPhone but it would not be a great phone for cycling I believe.
I haven’t had a cellphone that I have been happy with for touring since phones switched to color displays. Those were the analog days, great coverage and reflective LCDs that were bright in direct sun light. But as cell phone technology has evolved the usability for cyclist has decreased.
Today’s cellphone have colored graphical displays and built in cameras. Those would be great features if you could see anything in the display outdoors in direct sun light. Digital signals extend battery life but have deteriorated coverage in rural areas. Today’s cellphones are better phones for most users but certainly not better for touring cyclists.
So if you have any suggestions please share here.
