I have one of THESE, and I am very pleased with it.

It fastens to the handle bars with velcro straps, comes with a shoulder strap, so carrying it about when you've parked up isn't an issue.

Although Givi claim it to be waterproof (even the zips) it does come with an additional waterproof cover that just slips over the top.

I found that the touch screen on my Nuvi 765T works just as well through the clear plastic window as well.

Here is a picture of it fitted to my Fuoco.

HDD = Hard Disk Drive (like in a PC)

Using one on a bike = BHDD (Broken Hard Disk Drive). Crying or Very sad

I tried this with my TT720, fits in the bag OK and it's a quality piece of kit.

However, there are a couple of things that don't work for me. Firstly, the glare off the plastic makes the TT unreadable. Also I use the FM output from the TT to drive my helmet headphone and the orientation of the TT is important to get good reception. It works best if the unit is placed vertical, rather than facing me Rolling Eyes

Got a Givi bag yesterday for 37, pretty good compared to Ebay prices.

Phoned 5 bike shops in Newcastle Westgate Road and only M&S had one...the last one too. Wink

Now need a unit to put in it Very Happy

Does anyone know if a TT910 will fit in one of these bags? It's probably one of the thickest SatNavs ever made!

I know it's got a HDD but I've used it fine in the window on my tank bag. I just want it further forward and I don't always have the tank bag.

Cheers.
