Inexpensive solution for non-automotive navigation?

Want to take some cheap smart phone with GPS to use on bike and in a foot mode, in addition to the usual phone or even instead of him.


Options I see now are two:

1. something, most likely used, based on Windows Mobile,

2. budget on S60 device like a Nokia 5230.


But there are doubts about the suitability of both for this application.


It seems important to batteries enough not two hours, resistance to vibration, and display, to the sun, it was possible though something to disassemble. But water resistance is not important for me, absolutely.

Drag the old Glofiish X500+ (VGA screen). Bought with the dead telephone module for 2000P (does not see the GSM network, and everything else including WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS works fine). Flashed Windows Mobile 6, navigation, Navitel, Ozi and tracker. Very pleased, no problems with maps (Nokia) available navigation software is quite universal. The screen is bright, but for maximum brightness kills the battery quickly.

if the variant in addition to the phone, then I would probably it and used. GPS is almost always quite active and eats battery, this version from a separate device will not leave you without a connection at the wrong time.
