This is the mount that I used to fit the center portion of my F800GS's bars, Marty.



But Mike's solution would certainly be more versatile if you wanted to use it later on your Strom.

And he's correct about the 12V outlet switching off with the ignition (with a 5-sec delay). Just be sure you take along a Powerlet-style plug and cable (and not a cigarette-lighter style plug) for your GPS.

thanks fella's

Already have the power adaptor made up and I will get which either the local shop has, I am in Australia and the shops only seem to stock the popular RAM stuff and getting much else can be a bit of a wait

cant wait

SW-MOTECH "vibration-damped", with Zumo 550. There are rubber bushings in the upper pairs of bolts that join the 2 halves of the mount together.

Right:



Left:



From my point of view. Nothing obscured:



I haven't pounded it really hard yet, but I like it so far.

This is for a 478 mounted on a flat TT (no not that one) mount. It is screwed to a Highway dirt bikes top clamp. It is placed so I have an unobstructed view view of ze dash.




Here is a pic of how the mount sits on the top clamp:


It is offset so the screen is pretty much centered between the risers.

Garmin 276C with TT mount

Check out my new Garmin 276C with the locking TT crossbar mount.



I've got it hard wired with a fuse to the battery. Seems to be a very stable system. I have already tested it at an off road park with lots of rocks etc.



Here is my view when I am sitting. I have the low seat and am kinda short so even mounted all the way left it block some of the dash. It is really not that bad and I barely need to lean a bit to see the speedo. Who needs to know how fast they are going anyway?...



Here is my view standing, perfect...



NOTE: The GPS is mounted at a slight backwards tilt for optimum viewing sitting and standing.

Interesting. I didn't think the 660 came with hard buttons.

The Garmin one doesn't, but the BMW branded one adds the buttons. Same thing they did with the Navigator II like I had on an '04 RT.

Wish I had the dough for that Touratech GPS Map 276c Dual Sport Kit. Great looking GPS though!

The GPS unit is a Garmin Nuvi 205 with a 4GB card (micro SD) that cost me 120E brand new. The only down side is that the unit is not waterproof. If it rains, the unit gets into my inner pocket.
When it rains you can always use a condom to make it waterproof. It will still be visible and the touchscreen, if you have one, will be operative. It should be colorless and flat shaped, and in the flavor of your choice
