For just the basics ie speed etc like a bike speedo or for the purpose of logging routes? Cant help with the former but the latter you can get Memory map mobile or Viewranger both which work on windows mobile. EDIT: Viewranger is symbian

You will struggle to get more than 3-4 hours battery life though due to using the internal GPS. This is why I have a £20 one off ebay cable tied on my helmet with its own battery which I connect to via bluetooth on my phone and can therefore get about 7 hours out of it (gps lasts longer)

A little on the expensive side though isnt it? Or am I thinking of something else?

Sounds good, if a bit expensive!

The alternative for a all in one GPS with proper OS mapping will set you back over £300.....

Would that be as good as Garmin? Seems to have got a few good reviews. Only problem would be mounting the phone somewhere and waterproofing it.
