iPhone is a common smartphone also in motorcycling and by equipping the iPhone with a rugged LifeProof FRE smartphone case, it becomes ready for an adventure and serves the biker with full iPhone features. This means also that the iPhone is able to replace the traditional GPS -navigator in the cockpit and simplify the instrumentation. As soon as the helmet headset is paired with the iPhone, everything is set up from the connections and configurations point of view. The bluetooth connection brings verbal guidance from the navigation app., phone calls and the music in the helmet. There is no longer any need to route the communication through a traditional navigator and one more BT -connection in the helmet headset is free for another pair of device e.g. with a fellow rider or passenger. The iPhone LifeProof FRE -handlebar mount & cradle completes the setup and allows to quick install the iPhone in various spots in the MC -cockpit.
The rugged LifeProof FRE smartphone case for iPhone is designed to protect against the water, drops and dirt which is ideal for motorcycling generally and even if the iPhone is not used for navigation. The use does not to be particularly rough and even perspiration in warm weather conditions can shut down the smartphone if it`s kept in the internal pocket without any protection. That`s how I lost one of my phones and the numbers in the memory. The rugged LifeProof -housing is simply perfect for allroad and adventure riders that are often dealing with the dirt in offroad conditions. The iPhone touch screen is protected with a scratch proof film and it can be cleaned easily with running water even in the middle of nowhere by using e.g. GEIGERRIG -hydration backpacks with spray features. The backside camera lens is covered with a distortion-free CrustalClear optical glass lens which makes the iPhone also a ruggedized outdoor & action video camera.
The iPhone LifeProof FRE cases have exceptionally a universal handlebar mount with a 360 degrees rotating ball head with a big lock nut. The biker can use the iPhone both in vertical and horizontal position according to need which is important with GPS -navigation apps. The screen is usually at it`s best in vertical position providing a deeper 3D -view ahead of the route, but also the iPhone menus can be handled better in that position. The quick release mechanism works with one hand and the latch can be locked in place by sliding a switch on top of it. This is important feature for high vibration conditions such as allroad. A color indicator shows whether the latch is locked or not. Simple and useful, allowing the biker easily to remove the iPhone from the cradle when visiting fuel stations etc. and leaving the bike out of sight. The rubberized clamp absorbs vibration efficiently and the display remains readable. The LifeProof FRE case and the handlebar mount allows a full access to the screen and the iPhone buttons on the sides. The iPhone touch screen requires conductive MC -gloves such as RUKKA Rytmi, Virium or IMATRA which is at the moment the widest TOP -collection on the market.
The design of the housing is exceptionally slim compared to alternatives which makes the iPhone LifeProof FRE case even better for everyday use and even if the biker keeps the phone in the pocket often cabled with the helmet headset playing music, the protection is still relevant. I have a lot of information in the iPhone and I would hate to loose it again. Read more about the iPhone LifeProof FRE rugged smartphone cases here.
