Can anyone recommend good GPS app that has speed camera warnings, you can plan a route, record your trip and upload ready route? I've been using Waze which is awesome for everyday use, but it doesn't have above features (apart from speed cameras) which I need for planning some nice rides

Garmin Zumos do all of that.
Expensive but good.

Try OsmAnd. It has all the features you're looking for apart from speed cameras, but maybe there is a way to add it somehow. And it's free

If you are determined to use a bloody phone to navigate then this is not too bad.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.navfree.android.OSM.ALL&hl=en

It does have the annoying feature of closing the app if you click back too far from menus. Embarassed

It lets you plan routes and has voice.

Most of or all these apps have good points and shite points (and Waypoints).

A dedicated GPS is always better at the job (No matter what any cnut tells you) My GPS lets you make calls and surf the Internet (when hooked up to my phone) but it is a GPS unit so it is SHITE at all of that. Smile

Agreed on that one. I've just fitted the wiring loom and base station for my Garmin Zumo 660 to the Spacker. Been putting it off
for a while, but mainly because taking my brand new bike apart wasn't all that appealing. Embarassed But after fitting the grabrail
a couple of weeks ago, I've gotten over that and was happy to get stuck in. It's like Yamaha offset the instrument display to
one side on purpose. And was quite surprised to notice the Nav unit itself almost matches my paintwork too. Thumbs Up

I have the 660 too.
Canny see the screen in daylight.
It was always difficult but much worse after it was left out in the snow a few years ago. Smile

I bought a screen from Ali Exp. (As advised on a youtube clip.)
Fitted the new screen and nothing... Blank...
So I put the original back in. Smile

Still canny see it in daylight. Smile

Have a look at the TomTom Vio

I stumbled across it accidentally a while ago and was intrigued having never heard of the Vio before, and seemingly no one else has either, though fairly popular in Holland and a bit in Germany.
Targeted purely at scooter riders for some reason, I got one a couple weeks ago and I've fitted (in a permanent fashion) it to my Tiger 1050 and its really quite good!

Wouldn't have bothered if I was a weekend warrior who cares mode about polishing than riding. Wink

And I'm really sorry you only have a 16 year old shitter of a bike worth less money than my exhaust.
It must be awful being so dreadfully poor. Personally, I'd rein in the gambling a bit and then one day
you may have the cash for a bit less of a

I would rather have cash in my account than be skint with no money and a brand new bike on PCP. People who run old bikes are the kings of obsolete. Real bikers.

My Fazer has taught me a lot about how bikes work like that great moment when I discovered the problem I thought was expensive and possibly terminal turns out to be a loose wire or when servicing it for the first time and getting a power boost.

Enjoy your new bike there's plenty of good used ones I have yet to experience.

I checked the Navfree and it doesn't have option to import or record GPX, so no use for me for planning new routes.
