A bit of a rip off, eh?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Garmin Bike Mount for Colorado and Oregon (Wireless Phone Accessory)
It works in principle, but... This is the only handlebar mount listed as compatible with GPSMap 62, so I kinda didn't have a choice, and bought it. What do I get for my ten (used to be thirteen) pounds? A piece of flimsy plastic worth about ten pence and four cable ties. Ah c'mon Garmin people, SERIOUSLY? It's bad enough that official maps cost as much as the unit itself, but charging a tenner for THIS?
In fairness, the description on Amazon is accurate and I knew what it would look like - but again, does Garmin give me a choice?
Besides, I don't know what bright engineering mind decided that cable ties are good fastening for a high vibration application. No matter how tight I pull them, the GPS still moves gradually and has to be re-positioned every so often. Taking the unit out of the mount takes a relatively noticeable effort, too, and the mount moves again.
So I don't know. For three quid it would be a star buy, but for the asking price - meh.

Next time you fit it, put a rectangle of old inner tube between the stem and the mount. Will keep it from shifting as much and take out some vibration.
