How is it adjusted? Can the bracket be moved up or is the GPS tilted at a different angle?

anti-glare screen protector

Has anyone tried an anti-glare screen protector for the high gloss, highly reflective screen? If so, how'd it work and where did you get it?

Unscrewed the bracket, moved up a bit than rescrewed it

with 30" inseam, I think my concern was the height, well, BMW listened and made low suspections with ESA. I was on tipie-toe on standard with low seat.

However, you can program the display to show a digital speed output which is nice.

Same here, but sitting on mine I get the impression they forgot the low seat. But I can ride it without a problem. Perhaps my 2" boots help.

My next door neighbor Gene Simmons have got these for sale. So if you are interested then I am sure that you can get them for a good price. They may help you with your tipie-toe issue

Sorry. I just had to.

Does this answer the question - Can the bracket be moved up or is the GPS tilted at a different angle?

I was under the impression that it could only be tilted (which I have done to mine) NOT moved higher?? I will have another look in the morning.

Just checked page 50 in the US manual per NLS' suggestion and it is explained there.

Good point...are we talking about the plastic GPS bracket being moved up or what appears to be a black metal bar that supports the GPS bracket being moved up? I assumed he was talking about the metal bar but now that you mention it, it's not clear.

New video. Some riding scenes from Hechlingen Enduro Park and the area around there. Language is dutch, so if you are not from there then some guesswork and hand gestures de-coding is required.
