Overland Base Camp just posted a useful journal entry about navigating with a GPS units versus a phone.

“Someday mobile phones will work perfectly as cycling GPS devices.  However, the current state of phone-to-bar mounting systems, battery life, weather resistance, and tracking apps all mean that a dedicated GPS unit — specifically a Garmin 800 or above — is, by far, the right way to go.
