that's great Tom, congrats

I think I got it for $35 on Amazon.

one downside while recording videos is (assuming you bought a shorter arm...like me!)...at high speed the visor vibrates pretty bad, which in-turn creates a rippling motion and kinda ruins the video... (this is when you point the cam towards the road ahead)

one way to overcome this is to buy a longer arm...(which connects the base plate and the cradle)

but while recording the speedometer, shorter arm would do just fine...

I haven't done any of the charger stuff but I'm just going to run a relay under the seat that turns on and off with the ignition. This will then power up a 12v "cigarette lighter" socket. Then I've got a 2 USB port charger that will plug into that.

I use an app called MapQuest, when connected to a headset you can hear it read you the directions and tell you when to turn and what road/direction to go. It also has on screen instructions.

Hope the days that lie ahead
Bring us back to where they've led

I checked my e-mail and it should be here tomorrow.

Do you have any video from your iPhone used with this mount?

I thought of doing exactly the same, but apart from riding I travel a lot too...so decided the Zagg Sparq 2.0 would be a better choice (it also charges my iPad 2)

Hey man, I have a question.
What size of arm are you using? (The one that connects the B-342U to the phone mount).
Thank in advance!
