Somewhere along the line, I remember seeing or hearing about a map pouch that you could strap to your forearm. You know, like a plastic pocket with velco straps that you could put a map or driving directions and then easily look down at your forearm. Pretty simple idea and I'm pretty sure it exists, but I'm having a hard time finding it. Maybe it's a touring or enduro thing?
Anybody know what I'm talking about?

Look at the touratech site for GPS attachment systems. You don't have to go the full-boat-beemer aluminum either. The ones with the ball & socket attachment work quite well.

As for the map vs. GPS issue, I was a dedicated map guy until I went to the Ducati DOC world president's meeting and they gave us each an older Garmin unit. (Quest) For planning, maps are still best. On the road, I'd have to give it to the GPS.
