Boxit Mobile Phone Case review

Many traditionalists will say a phone has no place on a bike but, for better or worse, they are increasingly becoming our do-it-all constant companions. Many pack in bike-friendly functionality too.

The Boxit is fully waterproof – I held it in a bucket of water for over a minute without a hint of a leak, you can hear and talk through it, courtesy of a Gore Audio membrane panel, and you can dial through its clear plastic facia. It’s also shock-proof, and you get a lid plug for using a hands-free cable or earphones while still keeping water out. We tested the Universal Boxit 5.0 Dolphin, which comes with standard case, hands-free interchangeable small and tall lids, antenna extension and foam pads to stop your phone rattling. Which bits you use will depend on the size of your phone. Flip phones need not apply. The handlebar clip is an optional extra, but the clip looks fairly cheap and we’d have liked a slightly more sturdy solution.

This is a clever way of having your phone heads up and answerable when out riding, no matter what the weather. We found it particularly good for running Viewranger’s GPS software – GPS navigation and route planning for the whole of Britain – all stored on the phone on your bars…
