I just picked up another tablet, a 10.2" unit. This winter's plan is to rejig the windscreen and mount that. Bigger is better, after all

wish me luck

any more pictures of your setup?

Actually, the wires coming out of zumo's RAM mount are not connected directly to the ignition. They are connected between the ignition and the main fuse box, that being the easiest place to do it without removing too much of the fairing in the process.

I've cut the wires at that point, spliced them with insulated terminals (*) and made a separate fuse just for the zumo as mentioned previously. I could've soldered them, but then I'd run the risk of engine+ambient heat unsoldering them (it's a longshot I know, but I am playing it as safe as I can.)

Wish I could attach some photos of the install, but alas it didn't occur to me to take any since it was a fairly straightforward job.

(*) not sure if this is the correct name - I am neither English/American, nor am I a professional electrician :)

Oregon 200 and Zumo 220 on my 700GS windscreen, both with RAM mounts:



USB powered Oregon 200 (you can see the dual USB power socket on the left of the speedo):



I just bought a Montana 650 to replace both of them. It'll be a little big for hiking compared to the Oregon...

76Cx, RAM-mount. External powered while the sled's running (greatly improves battery life; cold is hell on the AA's).

I quit using Garmin's after I had two units break on me in a row. I used a Delorme PN 60 for a bit with topo maps but it's kinda on the small side.

I'm now using a Nexus 7 with RAM setup and made a video of my previous 10" Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (first gen) that I've used. I find the tablet's far superior except for hitting rain. You can get a waterproof case/ziplock bag or just buy something like the Sony Experia Z that's waterproof. ALL of them cost hundreds less than a zumo and I can still use mine with gloves.

Here's the quick demo from this past summer covering some apps. For you dirt only guys Backcountry Navigator is amazing. It has all the topo's, satellite imagery offline for a about 30 bucks.

It's easy to generate a route on google maps of bing and export that into the device via dropbox as well, much better than basecamp. (GPX)

I also use these for flying in aircraft, zero issue with vibration in 3 years of use.

If you've been eyeing this option heres the video:

crappy android phone screen capture, from my gopro video, of my crappy android phone getting roosted, it's Velcro'd to the 4$ trashcan wind shield... and tracking the whole ride with oruxmaps.

(screen off so it won't distract me from the roost)
