gps mount

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have a 04KGT and just bought a zumo 550 but even after hitting the search button I haven't seen much on mounts other than the new Gt's.
What do we have to pick from?
Thanks == Bobby

Ain't cheap, but works well and is solid as a rock.

I went with the BMW mount. It was fairly inexpensive and works very well...

I have the Gadget Guy mount like Mudbug but mine is attached between the handlebars instead of above the gauges. I had the RAM mount at one time but never felt it was secure enough. The GG mount is rock solid and looks great, but is pricey.

I went with GadgetGuy.net many years ago. I was able to reuse many of the parts when I changed bikes.

I do not trust RAM mounts. I know many people use them without incident. But, I think they are not secure enough for expensive electronic gear.

I really like how the Gadget Guy stuff looks in pictures but I just bought this one off Ebay and will be more than happy to share with everyone what I think of it ASAP when it arrives. Let me know if you are interested in my thoughts about this one.

Here is the info copied from ebay:
This is the Gadgetree accessory platform system for the BMW K1200 RS and K1200 GT

(1998 through 2004) it was designed and built by a K12RS owner rider for these models only.



The Gadgetree provides a rigid 3 x 3 platform just right of center and above the face of the speedometer / tachometer where your device will be in plain view and within reach, yet will not obstruct your line of site to the road or dash instruments.



Gadgetree works great for Radar detectors, GPS units, Satellite Radio, garage door openers or most any small gadget or device you want to ride along.



No tools are required to attach the Gadgetree to the bike. The device clamps onto the fairing support channel so no modifications to the bike are required.



A 12 long x 1 wide strip of adhesive back 3M brand Dual Lock fastener is included with the Gadgetree so you may safely attach most any device to the platform. Dual Lock allows for removal of the device so you may take it with you when you leave the bike unattended.



The Gadgetree is made of aircraft grade aluminum and anodized to prevent corrosion and discoloration. All fasteners used are stainless steel. The top plate is thick enough to drill and tap to should you want to permanently fasten your device to the bike.



Written and illustrated instructions are included. The device will be shipped the USPS 1st class mail the day after receipt of payment.



This auction for Gadgetree Serial # 0256-K

Here's what I use on my PDA/GPS, might give you another option.

It's rock solid and no vibration.

Cheers
