    I’d like to mount my Garmin 60csx to my TW from time to time. (Alternatively, I’d like to try mounting my nuvi 285W if that is possible and if it would survive).



    I see that many of you guys have GPS mounts.



    Can you offer any suggestions on what to buy? I have never had a GPS on a bike before.



    Thanks

    I'll bet RAM Mounts makes a kit for your GPS..



    OWT, we should host a ride up in your neck of the woods and see if we can lure any of the Cali guys up here!!!

    I've tried a few alternatives, and the flatscreen, automotive type GPS units can be homebrewed onto the bike. But for the handhelds like the 60CSX I haven't found a workaround that can beat the Ram setup.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    I have both a Garmin 60csx and 205w on my bike. I have them both hard wired to my instrument panel. As you can see I rebuilt my speedo / instrument panel because I took a big dump and busted up the stock speedo. I put in a Vapor unit as well as a 12vdc adapter and on/off switch to it and my high beams. I put the switch on the high beam so I can switch my lights to high beam THEN turn the power to it off while on the trails... thus getting more juice to my battery and gps units. Here are some pictures of my mounts. I used the RAM mount for the 60csx and it cannot be beat. I modified the standard Garmin mount for the 205w and mounted it with a big U bolt. BTW, I've NEVER had any issues with either unit and I have them with lanyards to the bar just in case they would ever come off their mounts. I do like having them both. Enjoy:

    I'm embarrassed to say that I broke it, and gave the beads to a girl. Seriously I wish I could help OWT with a mount, But I truely know nothing about GPS.
