Not exactly, but I did use RAM mount to use my iPhone as a satnav.

There are several RAM mounts you can use:

- front of the front brake fluid reservoir
- simple ball on an angle bracket that pins underneath the mirror stalk

The handlebar mount that Garmin probably provide won't work with the shroud around the bars.

Have you got the bike plate that fits to the other RAM components?

Each satnav has an individual RAM holder, but the connections to the bike are universal.

Not sure this has helped.

You must provide power by running a (fused) cable to the battery. Garmin provide that, I think, but it's a pain taking off all the fairing to fit it.
New Crossrunner in Nov 2014.

Not fitted one on the crossrunner as it came with tom tom ..but I did fit one on my last bike ..direct to battery with fuse in line .., ran the wiring by gently threading a bendy garden tying wire through the gap between tank and fairings ..looping in the electrics wire once through and gently pulling through to the bars..to ram mount on bars ..job done .. But not sure what gaps you have or can find on CR..? Worth a try before pulling all the fairing off... Only down side was making sure on service that they didn't trap the wire ...so I could get it off when selling bike ...

I tried a complex bracket designed to fit to the fork-leg bolts. It shook itself to pieces within a mile. In the end I removed the plastic handlebar shroud and fitted a RAM mount that replaces one of the handlebar clamp bolts. Very solid. Works a treat. Allows the unit (I have the TomTom) to sit within the handlebar shape.

Thank you for all the replies. I have found one that also fits to the top yoke bolts (it may be the same one that shook it's self apart). I have a trip to the south of France booked in June, so have to get something sorted. I'll try this one out and let you all know how I get on, the Garmin is quite a lump, so it may not last too long..

If anyone is interested it's from Motohaus Powersports Limited (www.motohaus.com), they are in the UK and their number is 01256 704909.

good luck with the fitment you are using . I presume you ran the wiring easily?

My Tom Tom I have moved from bars and mounted on ram mount on a cross bar of the Palmer Screen adjuster ...this puts the satnav directly  above the clocks and allows me the great advantage of not having to peer down from the view of the road too much .. also not obstructed by tank bag or suchlike
a simple glance and you can confirm what the earpiece is saying to you ... enjoy your trip to continent I hope we are still european when you go !

All sounds good.

I have a Garmin 590 fitted to mine.  All the brackets etc came in the box and its very stable and never moves.  Was expensive, so shouldn't .  I had already bought this, but not fitted it to my bike.  Then I bought the new Crossrunner, which came with a Tom Tom, just my luck.  The dealer fitted it for me instead of the Tom Tom and I swapped it for the Large Top Box and bracket Kit.

I may well get my local dealer to fit it too as I don't relish the idea of having to remove the bodywork, it never seems to go back quite the same..

Sounds like a plan, they will have all the right tools too, which is half the battle  :017:
