Should be here in a few days, I'll post initial impressions then post riding impressions once I get the chance.
The part I'm most excited about is the special custom mount these guys made for it. It looks great and I'm crossing my fingers hoping that due to the small size and the mount system employed, that I can mount it dead in front of me between the risers. We shal see.
Unit arrived earlier today, man do these guys ship QUICKLY!
Initial impression: Cool, and might be perfect.
As soon as I get my scoot back from the dealer, I can see if the mount will fit where I want between the risers, directly in front of me. If not, I can mount it traditionally on the left bar. This mount allows for almost any angle and any odd way you wanna mount it, should give me some freedom.
Generous rubber sleeves were shipped with the mount to prevent it from marring the bars when mounted. thumb up
Fairly small unit, a tad chunky, but still smallish
Works with Blue Tooth devices and cellphones
Preloaded with US and euro maps
Lots of customizable options for displays and such
Easy to use
Day mode and night mode, colors are selectable as well as brightness
Also has auto-brightness when it senses day or night driving
Power button is a PITA to activate
It has NO SPEAKER. WTF. Didn't say that in any ads i saw. You MUST buy a Blue Tooth headset/helmet adapter if you want speech from the device.
A bit heavier than expected.
The large shield that prevents some glare also prevents you from easily hitting touchscreen options that mght be near the edge or at the corners of display
It's been in the high 90's and lower 100's For days. Very light winds and the humidity has been high. I can't take the heat anymore I guess we have always had this kind of heat, less the humidity, around here. I have to wear a bandana around my forehead to keep the sweat from running in my eyes...
Let me tell you where I took my bike today. It is a 2012 Victory Cross Country Tour and I went on a 305 mile ride northwest of me (I spend the summers near Etowah, NC). I took interstate north to Asheville and then east to Old Fort. From there it was US70 to Marion, US221 through Linville...

I'm not sure where to post this thread since it will work for most Vic bikes, not just my Jackpot, so for that I apologize in advance. Mods/Admins please move to the correct spot if need be.
I made this video to show you how to convert your Vic from cable to hydraulic clutch. It's a very...
