Spare Phone Nav Consideration

Recommended Posts

saw this on another forum 

"Something to think about when your phone is attached to your bike and not on your body : if you crash and can't walk/crawl, you cannot call for help. I speak from experience."

I've never used Navigation  but bought a prepaid phone (because my Flir thermal camera didn't detect on my in service phone) also to use as a low risk free gps nav and not worry about my main phone or even detaching it for every errand.

When I crashed my Triumph a few years back my cellphone was in my tank bag.  It ended up about 60ft from where I stopped.  It took two guys almost 10 minutes to find it while I sat in the ditch with a broken hip, dislocated femur and a badly broken rh wrist.  I would have never found it to save myself.  I couldn't move enough to find my motorcycle let alone the tank bag.  Since then the phone will always be zipped into a coat pocket.
