    Been looking at this and interested in your thoughts on battery life (on your phone) as most apps drain battery quickly.
    Ideal for my countryside bimbles around by the looks of it!

    Will post some thoughts once I get out and try it! Not sure I can whilst we’re in lockdown as it’s not a great excuse to go out!!!

    I'll be using the connectivity system on my coming Trident, but I have been very interested in the Beeline--it would have been my next choice if the Trident didn't have the option. I look forward to hearing how it works out for you.

    Um, I think you might be a little busy with the little one for awhile, Matt. Good "excuse" to stay in! ;)

    TMF has reviewed the Beeline moto which you might find useful if you haven't already seen it;)

    Had mine for over a year now and can recommend it as a no fuss, easy to use device. It doesn't seem to drain the phone battery as much as just using Google maps.
    Looked neat on the Bonnie and looks equally right on the Rninet.
    Great for rideouts, especially on the direct route mode. Not sure I'd be too confident in an unfamiliar city environment with it, but it's probably not really designed for that any way.

    I looked at this a few days ago after seeing an ad on youtube. Have to say, it seems quite expensive, and for that price I will still use my phone, or even a cheap sat nav from ebay. But I do like the small size and simple turn instructions. I understand the new Royal Enfield 350 comes with something similar as standard equipment - well done RE!

    I did around 10K last year with beeline, great piece of kit. It does impact the phone battery but it’s own battery life is really good. I had an issue with mine that the spring in power button failed but beeline swapped it out no questions asked. I no longer use it has I have the MyTriumph BT module which is similar I feel. I wanted one less thing in the bars, which was the only reason I changed.

    I bought one recently and use Memory Map to plot a route and then download to the phone as a gpx file. So far so good, it's a bit small but does everything I want and probably much more, especially as I ride trails on various bikes and this is easy-peasy to swap from bike to bike.

    Just need to get out and try it some more.....

    You guys may know this already, but you can download the app for free and then use the built in navigation which looks like the beeline hardware. I don't think it has all the features (I didn't see the trip duration graphic), but it's a cool way to kind of test the waters before you drop a bunch of cash on the device itself. I tried it out this weekend and it was pretty cool.
