GPS Installation

I know this topic has been discussed but I have not seen mention of it in a while.... I am tired of leading rides and looking down on my tank for my written directions...Anybody come up with a really clean install of a gps unit??? I do not want to use an iPhone..I am talking a Garmin type Gps unit....

A lot of the adventure guys use Ram mounts. These guys ride plenty hard enough and if they can take the stuff they do I am sure they would be fine on a Pani.

RAM Motorcycle Mount

RAM Mounts - BMW R1200GS with Garmin StreetPilot 2610 mount

I use a RAM mount system:

Motoreva ball accessory mount (replaces steering nut)
Short ram arm
RAM mounting plate fastened to
Garmin Montana cradle and GPS
The cradle is powered direct off the battery (always on). I may add a relay or hunt around for a switched supply to tap into.

I'll take some pictures later.

I use the same set up on my ADV bike - battle tested over thousands of miles offroad.

I did try just zip tieing my GPS to the triple with some foam padding. This experiment did not have a happy ending...

What kind of adv bike do you have? I can't figure out what length arm to order.

Would any of these mounting setups be interoperable with an iPhone?
