Your G.P.S. will be your primary navigational system. Therefore it should be in your line of sight. Common sense dictates that this is directly in front of you. Not downwards, nor to the left or right. Nor should the position of the unit vary as you corner.
Hense the obvious proper positioning should be in the centre of the dash. This way you NEVER need to take your eyes from the roadway.
"www.goldwinggadgets.com" makes a mounting system that is exactly that. A true dash mount.
Furthermore there is an option for the positioning of a Laser/radar detector, all of which is wired up easily via "kennedy electronics".
IMHO having gadgets placed on the handlebars ( no matter how they are mounted) looks totally "aftermarket", and cluttered in appearance.
Here's one option (second GPS is optional, but highly recommended )
L-R: Valentine V1 on a RAM magnetic powerplate on the shelf extension (SmartTire display & LCD voltmeter are mounted on the front lip of the shelf), Garmin 2610 in the center and Garmin 376 on the right
The remote audio controller for the V1 is mounted here
With the Valentine 1, is the remote audio unit required if using a Kennedy Dual set? I was looking at Jon's web site and it looks like the device harness will plug in directly to the V-1. Is this accurate?
Some help please, I am thinking about upgrading to the V-1 and am trying to understand what I will need to make it work.
