This is a great product, well made easy to fit, the only citisism is that its a bit big. I have had to use some ear plugs wedged around the edge to hold my Garmin 1300 (4.3) in place. This works brilliantly.

Nicely put together product. Fitted fine onto my KTM 950 Adventure with a Garmin Nuvi inside. Solid when it is all locked up; the quick release works well and there is a velcro 'comfort blanket' attachment just in case it decided to quick release at speed.... Looks good when fitted, would have liked a little more adjustment to be able to move the sat nav left-right position, hence only 4 stars.

If you don't want to pay out a fortune for a bike specific GPS then this is what you need.
Its easy to fit to tubular handlebars but isn't suitable for clip ons.
The only problem with it is that when its cold the plastic screen loses it's flexibility making it hard to press on the screen, you end up with the plastic screen pressing everywhere except where you want it to so you have to take the GPS out of the bag. Also when you fit the waterproof cover you get the same problem. Other than that there are no faults.
if you have a Garmin you will need the original right angled USB power supply as a straight power socket won't fit in the case, if it's a TomTom I don't know as I don't have one.

I needed a bracket to carry my Nokia 5800 (which doubles as a first rate sat-nav)on the handlebars of my Triumph Street Triple motorbike.
I've seen a few of these clamp on brackets and a lot of them seemed too flimsy to put up with the speeds I would be going, but this one is far more sturdy and secure.
The carrier for the sat-nav unit clips on and off the bracket that remains fixed to the handlebars so you don't have to remove the whole thing when you park the bike, it is easy to take it off and pop it into your bag/pocket.
The velcro strap is a reassuring additional security measure if the sat-nav should come un-clipped in transit, although it hasn't done this so far.
My Nokia is a little small widthways for the display window, but by using the supplied foam rubber under the internal straps it can be held firmly in the middle of the window.
The touch screen on the Nokia works fine through the plastic window, but this might not be the case with all units. I suggest you put your sat-nav in a thick plastic bag first and see if you can still work the screen.
The carrier comes with a stand off bracket that I didn't need but I can see it provides flexibility with location. It also came with an outer jacket for wet weather, although it is difficult to see the screen clearly through two layers of plastic.
The carrier is certainly worth the extra cost compared to the more flimsy versions available. A first rate product.
