Need recommendations for a bomber (highly secure) bike mount that will hold my N6 in it's huge Unicorn Beetle case onto my mountain bike.

Must also:
- Provide instant phone insertion and removal.  No zippers, straps, etc.
- Accommodate other phones (my last mount was wonderful, but it was Note 2 specific; need one that can accommodate any phone).

+Marc Bettis Thanks, Marc, appreciate your comments, but my application requires continuous access to the phone.  When I'm just riding, phone is typically in my jersey, but this mount is for playing #Ingress .  Cheers!

Still think Niantic isn't neglecting the game?

It's less an issue of neglect, but more of software regression and seeming lack of regression testing. These bugs always seem to crop up soon after new releases, indicating that whatever bug fixes and/or new features in the release are related to the issue. Proper regression testing before release would prevent most of these issues.

Troubleshooting  - 
 
Have had my GPS 32GB N6 for two months and have plenty of problems.  Preparing to send the phone back as I don't see these complaints from others.  How about you?  Please tell me if you've seen any of these:

- WiFi extremely slow to switch on - settings page hangs - often takes more than a minute for WiFi page to come up after switching WiFi on

- Extremely slow to acquire cellular data when leaving WiFi coverage, often takes a minute or more, data connection shows ! in notification bar during this time.

- LTE data extremely high latency such as when playing #Ingress. My other phone updates far faster when forcing a scanner update

- Extreme slowdown when streaming #Pandora and running Ingress with lots of graphics - causes Pandora to skip to next song repeatedly. Ingress will often hang when this happens and must be killed and restarted.

- Daily spontaneous reboots - this has gotten much better since 5.0.1 installed. I would say this is rare now, not daily.

Anyone?

Just the issue of phone lockups or it just completely is stuck at a blank screen which is annoying as hell. Have to hold power to boot it back up

Does anyone else's Nexus 6 on 5.0.1 ever freak-out like this?

I have to reboot to stop it.

Might be related to #Ingress.

Recently approved portal for a mural inside a Trader Joe's store is incorrectly positioned by more than 100 yards.  Walking distance from the mural to the portal is over a tenth of a mile and five minutes due to traffic and crosswalk location.

Portal Name:  Trader Joe's Williamsburg Mural

Correct location for portal is 37.276992, -76.747524
Current (incorrect) location for portal is 37.276295, -76.748508

Portal data edit was rejected at 1:10am ET on 5/13/15.

I like the look Ted gives the kid after he kicks the bugbear away from the bed the first time. It's like, "don't worry, little buddy, I got this!"

When I play Ingress on my stock Nexus 6, the game sounds do not play correctly.  Often they do not play at all, sometimes they are late and out of sync with the game (and each other, for sequentially sequenced sounds), and only very occasionally do they play correctly.  This happens with all three released versions of Lollipop, 5.0, 5.0.1, and now 5.1.

For example, when I cold-start Ingress, the only sound that plays is "acquiring position."  None of the other welcome sound bites play.

When I glyph hack the sounds are often completely missing or play delayed and out of sync with each other and the video.

All game sounds and sound bites exhibit the same problems.

If you use a stock Nexus 6 and actively use the sounds to play, please provide your user experience below, but only if you have also played extensively on another device and are solid with all the game sounds, what they should sound like, and when they should play.

For background, this is my second N6, the first was returned for this and a host of other problems.  The replacement unit exhibits exactly the same faulty behavior, so I am now trying to determine if the problem lies with the Nexus 6 hardware or Lollipop.  My Note 4 exhibits none of these issues and all game sounds play perfectly.

PLEASE ONLY VOTE IF YOU PLAY INGRESS WITH A STOCK NEXUS 6 AND ARE SOLID WITH HOW THE GAME SOUNDS AND SOUND BITES SHOULD PLAY.

Ingress has sound?

I cannot get draw tools to work on Mobile.  When I select a tool, a box pops up that says to click on the map for the tool, but no amount of interaction with the map does anything after that.

What am I missing?

Draw tools works fine on my Galaxy Note II only if I use it with the S-Pen.

I just use trusted devices (moto 360). I'm not comfortable with trusted places. Lol...I'm not married.

Just got #Android #Lollipop and I'm just stunned at how badly they've mangled the sound controls for notifications and alarms via the new #interruptions feature. A truly horrible implementation. Went from a nicely flexible set of controls to an extremely limited set. So disappointing. Don't they use this stuff before they release it? I hope we don't have to wait long for a patch to correct this.

I agree, +Matthew Battle, especially since this change removes flexibility and options.  A poor implementation that removes options.  Hmm, that sounds kinda like Google Maps' recent up, er, downgrades.  I really gotta wonder what goes on all day at 1 Google Plaza...
