Phone and GPS Mounts for Suzuki SV650 Motorcycles

Garmin recently closed their purchase of Delorme and integrated their popular inReach line of handheld GPS devices.  The first of the new lineup includes the Garmin inReach Explorer+ and Garmin InReach SE+.  Reminds me a bit of the old Garmin eTrex line but with much improved software.  These handheld devices are great for hikers or geocaching and can even be used in the car or on a motorcycle. Garmin integrated the Delorme Earthmate maps into these handheld devices.  However, I think the most important differentiation in these devices is the availability of Iridium Satellite coverage which enables 2-way text messaging from … Read more

The GoPro HERO Session and GoPro HERO5 Session are the latest in a series of smaller action cameras introduced by GoPro.  The major difference between these two cameras is video quality.  The lower priced GoPro HERO Session delivers 1440p video where the GoPro HERO5 Session shoots 4K video.

The GoPro HERO Session comes with a few mounting accessories packaged in the box with … Read more

Mounts and Tripods for the 360fly Camera

The 360Fly camera is currently available in two different models.  Both models share a common mounting method which is enabled with a 1/4″ – 20 threaded screw hole.  This screw hole is common to a tripod as well as most camera mounts. The 360Fly isn’t the lightest camera in the world nor is it the least expensive.  Use a heavy duty mount that’s made to hold the camera steadily and reliably. Let’s look at some mounts and tripods for the 360fly Camera. Care for a basic tripod?  Consider the Ravelli APLT4 61-inch Light Weight Aluminum Tripod With Bag which works fine with … Read more
