    Yes! I used to do this until I bought a Garmin, the only problem is if you get a call or SMS which will interrupt the app.

    Before I got the RAM iPhone mount for my bike, I had put it in my backpack and it worked fine.

    But I must say I was hesitant about using a bike mount with my iPhone but this RAM mount is very solid. I have not heard of one person that had an issue with their iPhone falling out of this mount. http://www.ram-mount.com/CatalogResu...5/Default.aspx

    Another yes. Before I got an Edge, I used my iPhone in my Camelbak (mp3 pocket) and in a saddle bag on my road bike without any trouble.

    Yup, as long as your iPhone is in a relatively stable place, it should work reasonably well (as well as the iPhone's GPS can work, anyway.)

    I first carried mine in my left front short pocket, and I would get really wonky results when riding on the paved multi-use trails around town. (As in, on one ride, I got some GPS points that had me going 1,400 mph!) After I bought a phone "bag" that I could mount to my bike's top tube, I started getting much better results. I never really tried figuring out what the difference was...

    Yes, as long as your backpack is not made out of metal.
    If I disagree with you, it's because you are wrong.

    I mounted mine using the iPhone RAM mount suggested at the MotionX GPS site. http://gps.motionx.com/bike-gallery/01/ It is very sturdy and my iPhone will not fall off.
