mounting a pda.

ok so i have a Tmobile MDA. i want to find a way to mount it on the bike, i have no clue on where to start. Reason why i want to mount it is because i have a bluetooth GPS receiver which syncs up with my phone so i can use GPS programs. does anyone have any idea on how to do this? also i do not need to use power cables since its all going to be using battery.

riding a bike and trying to read gps from your mda doesnt seem like a good idea to me. you should just stop and pull it out

well its going to be a quick glance. the software i am going to use is TOMTOM it tells you how many miles you have left before you have to make a left or right turn. another program i have is the GPS speed sentry tells you your accurate Speed/top speed/average. so that was another reason why i want to mount the mda on the bike.

umm... aside from glancing down to look at the gps to distract you... wouldn't the vibration be a bad thing for the mda? one of my riding buddies put a mount to hold his cell so he could talk on his bluetooth while on the bike (dumbass but i guess it's better than holding ur phone while riding) and eventually his cell died during one of his rides... it just shut off and would never turn back on.

i already got it mounted. its been about 2 weeks now and so far its working pretty good for me. i usually just use it to get to somewhere that i don't know. also for my speedo right now gps says 70 and my bike says 76
