I wanted a GPS navigation system on my motorcycle for road trips and for finding unfamiliar addresses. There are some dedicated systems out there (like the TomTom Rider), but I thought it would be cheaper and more fun to assemble one on my own.
I already had a capable PDA
that could serve as a host. Getting a GPS receiver
that works with it was easy. The main questions remaining:
1. How do I securely attach the PDA to the motorcyle?
2. How do I provide power to the PDA for long trips?
