Bonsoir

We're off on the C2C next week - very exciting! Usually I use my iPhone with everytrail to track my rides, but this is only for a couple of hours max! I expect we will be out for rather longer than that, and I don't want my phone to die and lose all the data - I'm anal like that :evil:

Does anyone have any tips on extending iPhone battery life? Mobile chargers? I already have it on standby mode. Don't know if airplane mode would help?

Cheers

Dynamo hub and the relevant gubbins to connect to the iPhone?
Arrivée just reviewed one from Pedalpower.

If you are anal about data, a Garmin is going to be lot better for you. The Etrex series run about 24 hours on 2 AA cells.

I got a price list through from Pedalpower a while ago.
By the time you've bought one of their leads and a dynamo wheel this certainly doesn't work out cheap. Also isn't the coast to coast off-road? i'm not sure just how well dynamo work on MTBs being ridden at relatively low speeds.
