    HappyHighwayman,

    For what it's worth, I like the TechMounts like Waino shows here:

    http://advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=13444263&postcount=165

    I mounted my Zumo 660 in a Touratech locking mount using a TechMount handlebar mount. The setup is quite adjustable and relatively low profile. When i ordered, the guys at TechMount even swapped out the top plate for me so it would fit the TT locking mount.

    Good luck!

    I have a Garmin Origon GPS that I attached a GoPro extention piece onto the removeable clip (the Garmin handlebar mount) and use any of my GoPro mounts. This saves me from having to buy different mounts when I already have them. I use the GoPro handlebar mount on my bike and the suction cup in my car. In my kayak I have an adhesive one placed right in front of me. I could even use the Chesty for hiking.... "could". :norton:norton:norton

    Finally the GPS mount and risers are mounted on the bike.
    I´m very satisfied with the result, the quality is very nice and it looks good.

    You're right, the quality and finish do look good, but it seems like a very small niche product, doesn't it? The fact that it only seems to fit one specific model, does not allow any angle change, and possibly obscures the instruments all seem like design flaws to me.

    But it is pretty. No doubt about that.

    One thought prior to acquire is instrumentation sight line. From this angle looks like rider height > 8ft should be good. :lol3

    OP?

    Hot looking piece though :thumb

    Ram Mount universal mobile device holder with Delorme Earthmate PN-40. I've had the gps for several years and like it. Use it for hiking, kayaking and geocaching. Non-touch screen and button are easy to operate with gloves.

    Ditto. Where does everybody stuff all the extra wire on the power cables? The cable for both the 60CSx and the wire on the power cradle for the Montana are way longer than needed. There's a convenient space behind the battery but does it get too hot in there?

    I don't worry about the extra cable. I just coil it around the base and use a couple of ties to keep it coiled. I started doing this when I only had one mount, and two bikes, and needed to move the mount from one bike to the other, then when I bought a second mount, I didn't see the need to do that one any differently.

    Thanks dude, that's great. If it's good enough for Emmbeedee, it's good enough for me.

    BTW, we were in BC for a week at the end of July, loved it. Vancouver & Victoria. I realized something about Canada - it's just like the US...only different.
