You're gonna clip your $600.00 phone to your bike ?

Or bike one-handed while checking directions on your phone?

This is really foolish. Why not just hit your phone with a hammer several times instead of going through the embarasment of falling off your bike and wrecking your phone? Seems like a faster way to acomplish this.

Put your phone in a secure pocket and lisen to it and when you do not understand or if you did not hear the directions you stop and look at your phone to see where you are going. This is actually nice because I use google navigation to get me from college to a few places and I put my phone in my pocket and use my earbuds to listen to the car mode instructions. Hopefully I can find a more bike friendly route.

Its actually a lot easier then that there are phone mounts available to place on your bike just like you would in your car. Also this isnt exactly meant for any type of extreme biking activity and if you do plan on doing that then you are responsible to provide the protection for your $600 phone get an otterbox case. I ride my bike and have a mount for my phone to track my bike ride distance I have also used my bike for hiking trails.

This is a fantastic idea!

If you cant ride your Bike one handed sounds like a personal problem. As for Holding it while riding your Bike well that just plain stupid... There are Bike mounts sir... Just like you wouldnt hold on to your phone while driving. :/.
