Sat Nav Suggestions for 2011 Crossrunner
on: May 12, 2016, 07:29:40 AM
Good morning all,

I am thinking of getting a sat nav for my new bike, and could do with a bit of advise please.

The problem is it's the 2011 model so has the plastic covers over the handlebars. Can I just take them off and then use a normal ram type mount on the bars?

I'm thinking of the cheapest Garmin Zumo. I don't really want to have to cut the plastic covers to fit it, but want the sat nav in that hollow below the clocks.

Would anyone be kind enough to post some photos of their sat nav install on a 2011 model CR?

Thanks for your help in advance!

Paul.

Hi Paul , I put mine on bracket attached to the mirror stalk. However sw motech do one to mount it exactly where you want it without touching the shrouds. I think they're about 60 quid. :031:

Hi Paul,

I just bought a Garmin Zumo 340LM from Aldi, they are on offer at the moment for £169 (whilst socks last!)

It comes with an attachment so you can fit it to the brake reservoir bolts, that's where I fitted mine.

Cheers

Given the newer model mobile phones are IP rated i saw one mounted on the handle bar for both phone and satnav.  Not too sure i would want to risk mine though.  Cheers

I use Copilot Sat Nav on my IPhone which is on the bars inside a waterproof case from Ultimate addons. Been out in really bad rain and no leaks at all. This is powered from an accessory socket. Bought my ultimateaddons stuff on Amazon.

Replace iPhone with Android and Copilot with Google Maps, and ditto.

The real time traffic info is excellent and the only downside when compared to a dedicated Sat Nav like Tom Tom Rider or Garmin Zumo is that whilst the touchscreen works through the waterproof case for a bare fingertip, it does not like a gloved finder at all, even though my Alpinstars gloves have a rubber nipple on the fingertip which is supposed to enable this.
