PostSubject: Garmin sat nav   Tue Apr 18, 2017 11:05 am

Hi all. A year ago I bought a Garmin Zumo 340LM sat nav and have just got around to thinking about fitting it.

However none of the standard fixings work too well on the Swing and I wondered if others had been here before me and had any advice.

The main standard fitting is for a normal motorcycle handlebar which of course we don't have. There is another alternative involving bolting the bracket to the left hand mirror bracket, but my Oxford Grips controller occupies that slot.

Any advice welcome.

Hi Riggers
My solution was to make a custom centre mount and use Ram Mounts with the 1" ball. Not the cheapest of options but practical. Uses a normal car Sat Nav and you can still see the speedo and warning lights.

Left to right: Custom centre mount with Ram Mount RAM-B-238U Diamond Ball Base with 1" Ball 2.43" x 1.31" £8: Motorcycle Ram Mount Extension Arm for 1 Inch Ball Black £18: 5" SUNSHADE GPS SATNAV CASE MOTORCYCLE MOTORBIKE 1" RAM BALL WATERPROOF 5 INCH £29

5" SUNSHADE GPS SATNAV CASE MOTORCYCLE MOTORBIKE 1" RAM BALL WATERPROOF 5 INCH £29

Riggers,
As Howard said, use the forum search function to look for related subjects. I remember a member created a handlebar pipe mount in the middle of the handlebars. I believe that he had the same problem as you do.
