GPS mount


Recommended Posts

I have the factory GPS mount which fits to the handlebar mounting clamps and an AMPS Ram ball mounted to that. I find that with either a phone, GPS or GoPro attached it blocks an area of the instrument panel.

I am now looking at this as it fixes to the screen adjuster so seems to mount the device front and centre and at a better height to not take your eyes off the road. Just wondered if anyone else is using one?

That looks like a great solution, especially since you can still use the screen adjustment mechanism. 

I relocated my GPS from the left handlebar near the mirror, to above the instrument gauge and LOVE that location, the only negative (minor nitpick) is needing to lean way forward to reach it with my finger while riding, although usually the only time I ever need to do that is to press the "up ahead" button to look for gas, all normal navigation inputs are done while stopped.

I have one fitted to my bike, got it from Ebay. It's a good product which tidied things up and is easy to fit.

It is however a bit rough round the edges finish wise, for the money though I can overlook this.

Interesting solution Mamaganet, works the same as the one Chris mentions above and I have just fitted tonight. It is a bit rough round the edges but does the job well and I have always preferred function over form.

I have kept a second RAM ball on the factory mount by the handlebar clamps. All I need now is an end to the big freeze when I can get bike out and put some more miles on it🥶
