    I may have to do this. I've grown tired of taking off gloves to use my phone. Either that or I'll just buy some that work...

    This worked great for me!
    Use a thimble when sewing so as not to injur your finger.

    If you're in Canada, you can buy the conductive thread here:
    SFE Conductive Thread - 117/17 2ply - RobotShop suitable for sewing machines
    or this one:
    SFE Conductive Thread - 234/34 4ply - RobotShop which is thicker and can be used with a regular needle.

    I used the 117/17 2ply with excellent results.

    Yeah, I saw instuctions like these somewhere on FixYa, Instructables, or Make-zine when I wanted to know what I could do for my motorcycle gloves, but I haven't gotten around to ordering a spool yet. It seems like a waste to do just my glovesm so I wonder if anyone would want me to do their motorcycle gloves too?

    If it's mounted correctly it's no more dangerous than operating your car stereo when stopped. What's dangerous is going without hand protection just so you can advance the steps on your pseudo-GPS "Maps" app at a stop light or two.

    Also, you have no idea how frustrating motorcycle gloves make things even off the bike in the parking lot. It would be very welcome even for use purely when off the bike.

    Until then...
    Tip: For directions, set Maps to "list" view, take a snap shot (Sleep + Home), and set it as your wallpaper. Press the physical sleep button to show the lock screen with the wallpaper when you want to see the next step in the directions. Sure, it's missing your location beacon, but that's nearly useless once you've generated them unless you need to recalculate for whatever reason.

    Now, anyone have a way to control Pandora when using A2DP/AVRCP?

    Great thread . Wish I saw this before spending $40 on the northface E-tip gloves . FYI don't buy the E-Tips . They are thin and overpriced . Don't know why I bought em . Tho I was hunting for them for a couple weeks.

    Default Gloves that are perfect for the cold
    In my opinion the best bang for your buck iphone gloves are GLIDER GLOVES: Winter Gloves for Touchscreen Devices fairly priced yet better quality and versatility than some of the cheaper gloves.

    Excellent. I went down to the local sewing center. The owner said "try this, I'll give you a sample," and my wife is going to sew it on today (or tomorrow......). Will let you know....I'm starting on my older gloves first, left index and thumb only.

    Please say you're not serious and you know what happened to it.

    On topic: I just bought gloves that are touchscreen compatible. But that's because I needed new gloves anyway. If I really did have a favorite pair of gloves that aren't touchscreen compatible though...nah I'd still just go buy ones that are haha. I'm not too good with needles.
