For the mintyboost thing. you can buy one already built called a powerchimp.
what would you use to keep the iphone weatherproofed and protected on the bike?
OS mapping is now available for the iPhone from RoadTour's OutDoors.
It isn't awash with features, but it does routes. And it is very slick.
I've just got the whole of the UK at 1:100,000 and all national parks at 1:50,000 for £12.99.
I use memory map on my 3Gs, and so use 1:25.000 OS maps. I find this works very well, and would be good for cycling, as you only download the exact part of the map you need.
So, if you were to follow a road from North to South for example, you would only download the sections of map sheet containing the road, and would not need the whole map sheet. This way, you will be able to download a length of route possibly five times the length of on OS sheet for cost of one sheet.
Another poster mentioned IOS maps. I found this to be a fairly useless app, as each map sheet can only be accessed 40.000 times per day. This is fine in the morning, but does mean that you will get no mapping later in the day, which is a bit pointless, even if it is free!
