Speaking of GPSCity, check their thread in vendors if you want to save a few bucks on it.
Thanks!

That looks great! Very usable position for the GPS. I wish I still had my F800GS

Not normally a fan of clutter on the bike, like the simplistic approach. But after my latest trip away and having to back track to find fuel decided to mount up the car gps that had been sitting unused in the draw for the last 12 months. Got a cheapo mount and wiring kit from China (where else) and wired her up. Not much good off the main roads as the maps dont show most of the local "roads" (tracks) but should at least point me at the local servo

This is my Garmin Nuvi500 on my Tiger800. The Nuvi is on it's third bike and still works flawlessly...no bluetooth, though.

This is my Garmin zumo 350LM freshly mounted on a Malaguti Spidermax GT500 maxi scooter.

The mount is the standard Ram Mount system which came in the box with Zumo. I've drilled an opening in the plastic under the windsheld from which the 1" Ram mount ball protrudes.

The mount is powered - I've connected it to the ignition so that when I turn on the bike it powers itself, and when I cut the ignition the zumo automatically goes to its shut off delay sequence. Also, I've fitted a separate fuse for the zumo which is easily accessible from underside of the front fairing - the fuse is in a rubber, waterproof marine case.

Zumo 550 in Sequoia National Park

Believe it or not, this was a hard photo to take. The light kept washing out the Garmin's screen. I'm not sure why this one worked so well!

Did you connect the wires at the switch? With solder?

Im really surprised not to see anyone using an ipad or similar for navigation. Once you use it there is absolutely nothing better. You have to precache maps though...
