Hi, I have a bottom of the line car GPS, after much googling and hearing that some of the dedicated motorcycle GPS didn't last that long due to vibration and that others were using car GPS successfully, this is way I went. I take it off for the rain, it is 3 years old now and still going well. I made my own mount, but I would just by one of these now; https://iconicparts.uk/shop?olsPage=...260-950-enduro

Glad to know about the car gps. I have used one also. However mine acts up and the screen goes out and then the unit reboots and freezes with "Garmin " displayed.

The way I see it, I can buy 4 car GPS units for the price of 1 motorcycle GPS, technology is always getting better as well, so when mine fails I will investigate

I finally broke down and bought the official Garmin for about 300 on amazon. It does have much better functionality and works with all gloves no problems. Also can choose between 'curvy' roads or fastest route or shortest route. The holder and built in charger do a fantastic job without issues. Overall, if you ride long distance or on a tour I highly recommend if you can afford it.
