I'm a biker to mate, and a couple of years ago now looked at what was available for bikes. I quickly came to the conclusion that they were not worth the money. They all seemed to be pretty much a bad lot.

Quite a few posts on here where people wire up a car satnav - thinking of the tomtom 710/720 been mentioned - and sticking them in plastic bags on the tank/bars/tank bag, depending on preference.

There have been some pretty ingenious solutions!

Me, I don't bother, leave it to luck (cameras) and try, try and try again to find where I'm trying to go Rolling Eyes

Thanks for that...I was thinking along those lines of using a car satnav and Ive found a proper bag that velcros onto the bars with a perspex window from GIVI...Probably the way Ill go as I hate( like everyone else being a first to pay the rip prices) being taken for a ride (no pun intended).

If owt else comes up Ill post on here
