Phone Cases & Mounts
There is a wide range of cases available to protect your phone, and also many mounting systems. Many are available over the Internet, but we prefer to buy these from a retail shop, where we can try them before purchase with the actual phone. Sometimes a case's specification appears fine, but in practice something may be awkward. This is often an issue with phones that have a sliding keyboard.
We'll be adding a selection of items that we or customers have tried here.
The Boxit case is water and knock resistant. With the optional bike mount it can be handle bar mounted. However, it is a tight fit for the N95 and you need to have the phone's keyboard closed. Visit the Boxit web site.
Recommended by a ViewRanger user. Aquapak offer a range of waterproof cases to fit any phone. Visit the Aquapac web site.
I bought a Haglofs "Watatait" case from a shop in Keswick. It works well and is light. Visit the http://www.haglofs.se/prd/prd.asp?nid=786&CatNr=235&lang=en&nid2=905?.
I recommend having some freezer bags! They are good as additional waterproofing or for an unexpected emergency - keep some in a rucksack pocket, as they weigh nothing and can come in handy for phones, cameras, paper maps, books, sandwiches and other food or litter.
