Some sort of mount to secure it to the Wing in a way that you can read it while riding. I use a Touratech locking mount, secured with a RAM adapter, attached to the left handlebar. Others use a visor mount, which attaches it to the center of the visor over the dash - won't work for me as I have a vented w/s. There is also a Telexent (I think) bar that goes between both handlebars. I personally don't like the looks of that one. Some have even fashioned a mount that places the GPS down in the area of the ignition key. Personally, I like mine up near my line of sight, but not directly in front of me.ICEBRU said:I found a new 2720 for 499. If i buy this what else do need to buy to get it installed on my wing?
I don't know what you've heard, but the Garmin M/C cradle has many hundreds of thousands of miles on them with no problems. The biggest issue is that you need to make sure you engage the locking screw on the release tab or it will pop out on a hard bump.Catfish said:... I have heard that the Garmin motorcycle mount doesn't work?
No, the 26-28-class mount doesn't block the speedometer at all. The SP3 cradle typically will, as a function of the mounting points of the cradle itself. I've got an extension adapter that allows you to shift the GPS either up or down, depending on your needs.Jon's mount (goldwinggadgets.com) looks OK, but pricey (sorry Jon) and looks as though it would be in the way of the speedometer?
No, but access to the locking screw is reduced but I've made a 'knobdriver' to allow more clearance to the screw.Is there interference with a Tulsa X-tall windshield?
Yep - the StreetPilots do not come with any provisions for mounting or wiring it to the bike. If you don't want to hear the voice prompts, you can add the power cable by itself for $29.Plus, I have to buy a power cord too, so I can hard the GPS. At least this comes with the Garmin mount for $50 or less.
The RAM hardware to attach the Garmin cradle to the handlebars will only set you back $36. You could also use try the EK mounting system - it's only $99 without the mounting cradle...Can't say I am interested in the bar mount that mounts between the handlebars.
Any and all comments suggestions are welcome!
