    Thanks. It all happened very gradually over a period of years. I could take the Chatterbox out of the loop now, since my pillion bailed on me. May do that if I get around to it. Will need an adapter to go from the 3mm socket on the MixIt2 output to the 5 pin connector on the headset.

    I paused for a moment on Push Mountain in northern Arkansas to gaze happily at the GPS, soaking up the delightful curves that lay just ahead!

    probably a bit late now, but if you haven't bought yet it might be worth looking at the garmin nuvi range for cars that many of us adapt for bikes. you'll need a waterproof case but get a nice big five inch screen, ability to upload routes and never managed to shake one to bits yet.

    Thanks! I'll definitely look at that now. I have not bought one yet, I'm definitely not rushing into a purchase. I have found the thread on ADV about the discount info at gpscity, and a lot of info on the Montana, so looking into that one as well.

    You won't regret spending a bit more and getting a Montana. You'll be able to stop wondering if you bought the right one.

    What is that mount for your Etrex? I love how simple and rugged my Etrex is, but my handle bar mount is a bit hokey.


    Here's the GPS on my cruiser. Nothing too interesting, though.

    Seeing as nobody's answered your question on the mount, I might as well. It's a RAM mount. Probably under $10 from anywhere RAM mounts are sold, like GPSCity.

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

    why some folks run 2 GPSs - one for the map, one for the time / speed / lat & long / et cetera text display.

    I generally run two...one for lots of numbers, one for nav.... two for redundancy. There are times when I depend on GPS.
