I would be afraid it would fall off , mine in the car seems to fall off from time to time , it could be catastrophic on the bike !

Love the center of the dash. Had the x-grip on the bars and worked fine, but this is much cleaner looking and easier to see (in sight line)
BTW it's a Zumo 665LM

I like the looks of the center mount, but I still think the left handlebar is the most PRACTICAL location to mount the GPS on the Cross Country. Here's my bike and my mount.

I agree, plus I don't want anything in the windshield vent area.
I'll be switching out the X-grip for the Tom-Tom mount on the left bar.

Got GPS in my phone but its always turned off and in my inside vest pocket.
On the rare occasion that I'm lost I just stop and work out where Im going.
Not really into all the technology.
Actually I got a bit lost last weekend and when I turned my phone on there was no coverage anyway, so I waved down a passing car and they had a paper map!
Worked out I was actually going in the right direction anyway. :-)

No matter what...I always have a paper maps (several actually, and even a small atlas) that fits under my trunk liner...doesn't take up any space.

My Garmin (car GPS) goes into a RAM mount/holder made for the particular Garmin model. I then use the Victory/RAM half moon mount on the clutch perch. It works great in that position and the 12VDC power supply is also right their on the left side of the fairing. I use a simple quart size Zip Lock bag held on with two rubber bands for the Garmin in the rain.

I have a second Victory/RAM mount on the brake perch. When I'm in an area that has toll roads, my I-PASS transponder (from Illinois) easily attaches on the right side of the handlebar using a RAM X-Grip holder. I have a vacuum sealer so I have my toll road transponder in a vacuum sealed bag to keep the rain and debris out of it.

Both my Victory/RAM mounts have two RAM balls on them for additional options like the RAM cup holder or even a second RAM X-Grip to hold a phone, a camera or something similar. The Victory/RAM mounts are very easy to use plus they look and work great.

I'm not sure if Victory or RAM still offers the machined aluminum half moon mount but I'm glad to have the two I have mounted on my CCT. In colder weather and with my cruise control set, I'll sometimes use the RAM ball mounts as a place to rest my hands. It keeps them out of the airstream and they work fine for steering input.

All the best,

Mark
