Fitting aSat Nav

I'm looking at buying a Crossrunner. Anyone fitted a Sat Nav?  I will want to fit Garmin Zumo. Any idea of brackets etc?  Bill.

Hi, only way I found was to get the givi bag (I used my car sat nav). This straps well between the bars. I have just come back from a 3,500 mile round the british coast and used it quite a lot. It worked fine

Have just bought a x/r and one of negatives is absence of bars to fix my Rider Pro europe onto.
I accept Givi bag is a solution but would like a permanent fix if poss. Will have to look into it more when I can get to grips with the bike. Will post up in due course if anything comes of my work.

I have just purchased a Givi TPH02 tankloc bag. You may find it a good compromise for sat nav or even telephone mounting.

There is a clear window pocket on top that will take an I-phone or similar sized device. It clips on an off easily and is a useful valuable case to carry away from the bike when parked. You need the bag and a mounting ring which in our case is the standard VFR ring. Simple to fit and use.

As you will all know the VFRX tank is tall and this bag sits comfortably on the tank and does not inhibit bar movement.

Not available in Oz so I bought mine from Helmet Head in the US. Excellent service and response.

I use a 'so easy rider'. Its the original waterproof Satnav case holder for bikes.  i believe the givi one is a similar copy.
Its ipx7 rated so basically you can chuck your sat nav in water a metre deep for 30 mins.  don't think givi copy is ipx rated. 
Not overly expensive but works brilliantly.

Did anyone tried fixing the RAM mount onto the Clutch or Brake bracket? You should only need a couple of longer bolts and should be pretty secure without the need for drilling and such.

I have ordered the SW-MOTECH QUICK-LOCK GPS-Mount from Biker Factory last 2 Dec but I am still waiting for its delivery. Yesterday they have told me that it will take additional 10 days, so we are at 8 weeks  :023:

I got the same reply unfortunately, apparently they are not available yet. Hope is worth the wait.
