Android phones with built-in GPS | accelerometer | digital compass make it apt for outdoor activities including bicycling, especially the weather-proof ones. Add that with many applications available to utilize these features e.g.: maps, speedometer/odometer, shock-meter - you'll have a very bike-friendly gadget.
Mount an Android phone securely to your bike is what we'll discuss here. This is how I mount Samsung Galaxy 5 (GT-i5503) on my Polygon Premier.
- unused Kyocera belt-clip
- mouse pad
- band with Velcro
How to install :
Kyocera belt-clip has a matching wide size, but too deep, so I had to insert cut mouse pad between the belt-clip and the phone and that makes Samsung Galaxy 5 locked inside the belt-clip. It already has a clip so it was easy to attach it to stem with a Velcro-ed band .
You can use another cut mouse pad between stem and belt clip to secure its position.To make it even secure, you can use rubber band from unused inner tube.
If you own a custom belt-clip specifically for your phone, it will be more secure.
Give it a try, on your own risk :)
