Using A Smartphone On Your Next Bike Tour

Alicia's Smartphone
A smartphone can be a very handy all-in-one gadget on a bicycle tour.

Together with my husband Paul, we’re bicycling around the world in search of inspiring cycle images. We’re currently (September 2011) in Nepal and so far we’ve found our smartphone to be extremely useful for navigating our route and other tasks.

Before I go into the details, here are two important things to know. First, we plan our route day-by-day and not beforehand. Second, navigating with a smartphone requires an internet and satellite connection. If you will be cycling in an area where there is no internet connection, it is possible to load Google Maps into your smartphone’s cache. It is also possible to load maps from Open Street Map but so far we haven’t used them.

    Things i have seen in terms of laptop memory is the fact that there are specific features such as SDRAM, DDR or anything else, that must match the requirements of the motherboard. If the computer’s motherboard is pretty current and there are no computer OS issues, replacing the storage space literally normally requires under an hour. It’s among the easiest computer upgrade procedures one can imagine. Thanks for giving your ideas.
