    GPS Vibrations

    I have the Triumph factory GPS mount. I installed a Tom Tom Rider 550 on it using the powered mount. Depending on the roads (but mostly in Louisiana) I can get a vibration in the GPS mount that makes it unreadable. I can put a finger on it and it stops the vibes.
    What I am thinking, is to get something to put a constant tension on it to stop these vibes.
    Any one else have these issues, if so what did you do?

    Exactly.

    I put a foam disc cut from pipe insulation around the mount so that the disc seater on the mount base and touched the GPS thus having the same affect and f a digit touching it.

    Works OK but not on heavily bumpy rutted roads or tracks!
    Love, light, and kindness,

    I have the same GPS model and support and it does not make any kind of movement to me.
    Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.

    It would have helped if I read it too before posting, looks like I'm dyslexic!

    Thanks. I had in my little mind the foam on the horizontal plane around the base of the mount.

    Resurrecting an old thread, but it may be helpful.. My OEM bracket worked loose yesterday, it might be worthwhile stripping down the dash and checking your torques?
