"Map reading on a bike is even more of a pain than it is in a car. To check your route you need to pull up and park, remove your gloves, dig the map out from your pocket or bag, unfold it to the correct place and only then can you take a look at your route. Then the whole process has to be reversed before you can move off again. And that's in ideal conditions; add in a drop of rain or the need to find some light at night and the procedure becomes unbearable, especially in an unfamiliar area where this process may need repeating several times before finding your destination."

John has taken some photos of his current bike setup and this can be viewed in his review here.

Now when I first read that I though it said "John's Child Bike Mount". I was left with visions of a PocketPC with Satnav bolted onto a Chopper!

I used to have my GPS12 fitted to my KLT1100 using a RAM mount which bolted to one of the unused handlebar mirror holes and it worked great.

Cheers

john can you tell me the make & price for the mount on you bike and the place you bought it, also whats it like for vibration.

The h2210 is 5v so is the mount ok for 12v straight to the bikes battery. has it some voltage reducer in it.

Thanks Glen
