Upon first inspection this bracket looked good. Holds the Garmin device securely, quick release from the bike (which you don't really need as the Garmin itself would probably be removed seperately) and comes with all the bits for fitting a number of ways - very nice I thought!
However!! Upon tightening the nylon bands to secure the bracket, the plastic bit which sits on the handlebars (with rubber underneath it) broke - snapped in an apparently very thin and obvious weak spot at the top. VERY poor design.
You have to make these things tight to work so its useless as far as i'm concerned. Don't bother.

The mount is fine for most cycles, however, beware if you have a Brompton folder.
The mount has little versatility, as a result the options are insufficient for it to suit bikes with more restricted handlebar space for mounting. One issue I found was that you cannot mount it at an angle that provides a decent view of the screen due to the restricted mounting, so you need to rely on the voice prompts.
A stand off type arrangement similar to the screen mounts would have been better appreciated.
Still an OK piece of kit but not for Bromptons!

Does exactly what you'd hope it does, keeps my Nuvi firmly attached 100% of the time, never once come out.
If I were to make it *perfect* I'd have a waterproof cover for the GPS, but that's nitpicking.
Using it over a year now and haven't looked back. Going to pick up a bag-mounted Solar panel to charge it for longer runs and I'll be all set.
