Who has the experience of using the Nav4All navigation system while you are out? Am I correct in thinking that any Bluetooth mobile phone can be turned in to a GPS device and how does it work? I ask this because I do a lot of mountain bike riding and quite often I get lost so having a handy GPS device with my phone would be great, are they expensive?

I am not familiar with the unit you mentioned but I too do a lot of riding and getting lost.

I carry an old Garmin Emap in my Camelback for those special times.
The nice thing is that I can load detailed maps for an unknown new area into the memry card so I can usually find my way out.
Well so far I have been able to at least.

The Emap is very inexpensive used and about the size of a Clif bar. It has been very rugged to and runs on 2-AA batteries. I also can use the "BreadCrumb" trail feature if I remember to turn the thing on before the ride.

At first I mounted it on my handlebar but it looked too nerdy and was asking to be crushed,if you know what I mean.
It can also be used as a Cycling Computer for speed and distance.

Have Fun
