Let us know if you figure that out. I couldn't get it to work . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from . . .

Do you really need the handlebar mount?

Hi, I just rode 4500Km across Australia and all I had was my old XXL540 Tomtom from my car, the windscreen sucker sticks very well to the area on the fuel tank just in front of the filler cap and powered off the onboard merit plug. It didn't move all trip and I could snap it out of its holder in no time and put in my pocket or top case. It didn't foul the handle bar at all. That model doesn't have bluetooth, but thats ok, visual is fine anyway. Water proof, use a same size zip lock plastic bag or even cling wrap will do. It was very well placed for programing, worked for me, cheap too!

Hi Brent,

I'm new to the forum. What the device you have mounted where the old Nav was located? Looks like a digital speedo. I need something like that.

I have read through twice & did see information of what was installed in the m/c cradle where the GPS would have been. The pic is not a Nav IV or V. As Ken _R (post 567425) stated it looks like a digital speedo. Could you state what it is cbdane? THANKS cbdane for the information & pictures, information shared is always good even if a person does not want to use it.

There is a GPS Baseplate (part # 7 in the pic below) that provides a locking function using a standard BMW key cylinder (part # 12). This works by covering the top of the GPS cradle so that when you push the release lever, the release latch can't move up and the GPS stays in place. A simple twist of the bike's key and the GPS releases as normal.

You'd have to look at clearance issues for your handlebar mount, particularly in the lower left corner where the key is, but it might add the basic security that you guys are looking for in a very convenient way.

What I do is just keep my half cover handy, and cover the bike anytime I don't want prying eyes staring at it . . .

Am I reading something wrong, or is this the wrong picture that goes with the text?

Thanks for all you do,
Darryl
