GPS Mounting Bracket Part Number?

Folks,
Finally giving in to the dark side and putting a GPS on the bike. Of course I want to purchase the BMW GPS mounting bracket for the GT. Have done a search in the forums and could not find the BMW part number. Does anyone have the part number?
Thanks,
Bill

I think it's about $125. I seem to recall that when I was asking about it.

Chicago BMW has it for $100 (plus shipping). I am looking at another source (over in the UK) to see if it is cheaper. it goes for about 17 Eu over there.

Well, you could build a bracket to attach to this bracket to hold the V1

Not if you built an especially high bracket to attach to the other bracket.

I bit the bullet and paid the $100 to Chicago BMW for the BMW bracket. It looks like it's worth about $10 but mounts perfectly and holds the GPS at the exact angle for excellent viewing. My guess is that it won't fit any other bike and so the individual unit cost had to be high.
