A quick note. I am shipping the last 2 I have on the shelf today and may not be able to make more until later. I might be packing up next week and heading to the MOA rally and then to see my parents in Iowa. If you need one soon I recommend contacting Jryan19 here on the forum he makes a similar one.

If anyone is adding another NAV, here are a couple more photos of how I am powering it - for now.

Made a custom wiring harness by taking the Garmin wire, a waterproof inline fuse holder, a coiled 12V wire and a powerlet plug.

Will probably need to put a small piece of the clear body wrap on top of the tank to protect the paint from the rubbing of the power cord. It doesn't move much but better safe than sorry.

My reply is off topic but here is what I did.

Bought a couple of cheap aluminum bar end weights from Amazon ($10), drilled and tapped a couple of holes (#6-32) in one of them and attached the RC4 to the bar end weight with small SS screws and washers. Then I bought a long M4 screw and replaced one of the reservoir screws with the long M4.

@Maico Guy - just send him a PM. He might be at the MOA Rally (in TN) this week though.

Another A+++ review for Jim's mount kit. Had a little issue with mine and Jim went above and beyond to correct it without a second thought. I'm very pleased.

Dumb question for y'all - just got Jim's mount. Which double socket are folks rocking with their phones/x-grips? Short or regular? Trying to keep it front and center without blocking any instruments.

I just sent you a PM with links to the short arm and X holder I use. This has worked for me for 6 years now.

Thanks, Jim! I'll be following suit. Nice piece of hardware you make there!
