GPS mounted higher up on cross bar…

I tried mounting my Garmin eTrex Vista Cx on the main bar under the crossbar, but only one ride proved that it’s not a great spot for it. Don over on the KLR650 Yahoo Group suggested just wrapping the crossbar with rubber [in this case an old bicycle inner tube] and mounting the GPS to the crossbar.

A little higher and easier to see...

So I gave it a shot and the GPS is in a better position for viewing and access to the joystick/buttons while riding. Hopefully all that rubber will isolate the GPS from some of the KLR’s vibrations.

Lots of rubber wrapped around the crossbar...

    I have that same GPS and use a RAM mount for it. Works great. I was going to use the same mount you have there. I used it on my bicycle and it worked fine, but couldn’t find it.

    I used that mount for a while, but my bike(s) vibrated the GPS to extinction. It worked for about six years though. Now, I sit and wait for my RAM Mount to arrive for my newer (cheaper) Nuvi GPS.
