Simple GPS Mount
« on: April 21, 2014, 03:39:36 am »
I used the suction cup ram mount that came with my garmin nuvi 50 that i had. Stuck it to the rpm guage glass, centered it low on glass and can actually see rpm's over the 2K mark. I had been so focused on a hard mount that it never occured how easy is was, til a harley owner pointed it out, he had done the same thing. SO SIMPLE!

Been using that suction cup for years in my car....one word though, tether. That cup will let loose one day.

The one in my car lest go every now and again. To do with temperature changes and eventual loss of suction.  Falling on the floor is much better than falling off the bike!

yes, it may fall, but will only fall an inch or so, and is tethered, rode 550 miles and no problems.

Just me, but I would test to make sure it won't fall far enough to wedge between the cable support or the top tree, but you probably already did that since placing it there would readily reveal that problem.

I lost (fell off) my GPS mount that was stuck to the windscreen, so I have just made one to fit the left mirror mount out of 10mm steel rod with a 10 x 1.25 thread and a round disk brazed on to attach the mount with 3mm bolts. Looks made for the bike.

The Triumph GPS mount is very well made and in the optimum location. They have also provided both power and audio connections for a Garmin GPS. For me, (and YMMV), this is well worth $79. (and I am pretty frugal!)

I agree that the TT GPS mount is the optimal positioning for the GPS or a Radar detector. Well worth the reasonable cost. It's solid, looks good, integrates with SE audio, and is easy to reach and see.
