GPS systems and mounts

Well I thought I'd kick this one off, lets see your GPS and mount if you have one. Here's mine, a Garmon GPSIII plus, I fabed up the mount by adapting the car mount an bolting it to a mount I made at work. Works great, and no noticed vibrations either.

What does that "Car" mount look like w/o the unit on it? What is that mount called? I don't undrestand how it would have been used in a vehicle.
Anything will help as I like it.

basically it's a formed mount that snaps onto the bottom and top of the gps, with a retaining screw in the back "just in case" the way it mounts in the car would either be by a couple screws through pre drilled holes in the bottom, or by a velcro strip stuck to the bottom. Once you have it in place, a seperate screw on the side of the mount lets you adjust the gps up and down to help see it better. No idea what garmin calls the mount, other than "mount" . I'll get a couple pictures and post them if that will help.

My gps handlebar mount is actually made by Garmin. Bought it for $16 shipped from ebay. I mounted my heated grip switch to the side of it.

Where did you buy your mount, and how much was it?

The shortest distance between two points is a damn shame.......

I rode Broke Back mountain, and my a$$ is killing me.....

I have the same thing on my KLR. It was $40 from Aerostich and took only minutes to install.. Very solid, too
