Sat Nav and Mount
« on: December 05, 2016, 11:41:43 AM »
Hi. As said in intro section I should be getting my new S1000r early next year. I asked about the BMW sat Nav Mount etc but the salesman warned me it sits the sat Nav upright. I know you don't need to stare at it when on the move but a glance to check route ahead is good. So what do you people use. I'm thinking of the Garmin Zumo 595LM . I would rather it was mounted flat on the bars. Thanks in advance. Mike

I had my 595 mounted on the handlebars and very happy with it.
Fully configurable setup rigt in the middle and no problem to monitor while riding.
Does not block the view to the dash and mounting tankbag is still possible.
Since I sold my 1kR the BMW mount is for sale.
50 bolts included, that is 50% of new price overhere.
You can PM me when interested or in need of more info/pictures.

The BMW mount puts the screen pretty much dead on when I look at it, its more or less the same angle as the clocks so if you can read them you can read the GPS.

The only problem is if you have a large tank bag, as this will cover some of the screen.

Thank you for that. I must have misheard the salesman. Pleased about this.

Hi every one,

I made this one, attached to the screws of the windshield, you can give it to a laser/water cut workshop:
