They have worldwide shipping. Or look up Techmount products on ebay.
Wunderlich screen with a little welding.
Just fitted the Burak Tavil mount. Wanted my GPS at eye level rather than mounted down on the handlebars. Perfect fit
Had the Garmin Montana (650T) for a few years until the screen died on me. Even with a screen protector, the display (primarily the plastic part covering the glass touchscreen) disintegrated due to exposure.
Picked up a replacement touchscreen for $20, but it's simply not salvageable. The touchscreen connector is a ribbon cable soldered to another ribbon cable. Free if anyone wants it as I'm simply not going to fix it (message me with your address).
Though I did pick up a nice replacement Garmin 680 from GPS city though, along with another screen protector. When I'm on the road, I'll fire up the cell phone (Samsung Galaxy S5 ... waterproof) for Waze. The Garmin's are a lot more sturdy though!
Heya, that kind of mount is this? Where did you get it from? I don´t see any of this on the TT pages.
These are produced by a guy in Turkey, you can find him on facebook https://www.facebook.com/f800gpsholder/?fref=ts
I have one on my bike and they are quite good.
Thx a lot!
Hey AFdude, how much do you trust the X-grip?
Do you use the rubber "bra" that comes with it or do you let your phone ride naked?
Anybody have issues with phones coming loose using this?
I run my phone in one without the little rubber guy with no issue. I've even dumped it a few times and the phone stays stuck in there.
Thanks for the info SONICJK. Good to know.

The four button cradle comes without the necessary hardware to mount it on the bar, I think the best option is to go with the Touratech lockable mount, in the meantime I used the good old RAM mount to hold the cradle for the Nav V.
Anybody try using an App like Scenic with offline maps and Iphone etc? Shouldn't the GPS chip still tell a rider location? Sure no glove friendly buttons and could shutoff from heat.
Hey all, is the BMW Nav V compatible with the F800GSA? If so, is there any special cradle you need for it? A friend is trading in his ‘15 1200GSA and is letting me have the sat nav from it for a great price.
I’ve heard the standard cradle has too short of a lead for it. Anyone tried?
Hello I am using Nav5 on my 2016 F800GSA. It does not show fuel consumptions, gears and tire pressures and all other bike info as it does on a 1200 but who needs them :) I separately bought a 4 button cradle and it is super easy to use the Nav whilst riding with that. I used a short arm RAM mount to attach the cradle to the stock navigation bar. The wiring was not as long as I hoped but it was spot on, no worries. I hope the photos help.
Sweet, thanks. What are your thoughts on the sat nav?
Well, it works great when you ride on paved roads, I just updated the full European map and it is brilliant. When I do ride off road which I often do, it is worthless but there are some apps for that.
Thanks, did you just use the standard R1200GS mount for it?
Nope, I got this cradle.
