Trophy GPS Mount for Fodsport Navigation unit
« on: November 20, 2020, 03:14:45 pm »
I tried searching previous threads for this info, but no luck.
Does anyone know the distance between the mounting holes on the GPS mount kit?  See attached image.  I would like the distance of lines A and B on the mounting plate to see if it can be used to mount a Fodsports GPS.



The person from Fodsports says that the distance on their mount case  is
The distance of A: 37.92mm
Distance of B: 29.69mm



Thanks.

That looks like a standard AMPS pattern and the dimensions match an internet search for AMPS bolt pattern dimensions, and I do believe the Trophy is also a standard AMPS pattern.

Thanks Trophied.  This is really helpful and looks like it will fit.
I will pull the trigger and purchase this FodSports GPS (https://www.fodsports.com/shop/5-inch-motorcycle-gps/) which is much cheaper than a Garmin or Tomtom.  Available on Aliexpress for about $120.  I've been curious to see how well it works.

Let us know how it works out.  If it is waterproof for use on a  motorcycle it would be a great option if it operates well.

It's difficult to tell just by looking at the Image, but you might have problems with
clearance between the top of that Mount and the Screen, when the Screen is fully lowered.

Watch out for that - If there isn't enough clearance you might be able
to make some sort of Stand Off plate, but will then need to ensure
that it is not positioned so low as to obscure part of the Instrument panel.  :084:

Ok.  It may be a while before I will be able to try this as it seems that the Triumph GPS mount is on backorder.  No idea when it will be available.  The GPS is also coming from China, so it may be a month or more before I give an update.

I just ordered and received a new OEM CNC GPS/Sat Radio mount kit, P# A9828011, from Adept Powersports for a good price ($34.68 USD) before shipping and tax.  I don't know if they have any more, but you might get lucky.

I just checked their website.  Looks like you may have gotten the last one because it's showing on backorder.
I wonder if this all Covid related or are they just no longer making parts for the Trophy?
