Dave, May 23, 2013 I attached this to the top tube of my bike. Works great, its out of the way and secure. Thanks
Pirround, March 16, 2013 I use this mount to mount my eTrex 30 on my cyclocross bike. I expected to use a RAM mount on my bike since I had been very happy with the RAM mount for my old GPS. When I ordered my new eTrex, I ordered the RAM mount at the same time. Since this Garmin mount was so inexpensive I threw it into the order just on a whim. When I received my order, I found the RAM mount to be very unsuitable for me - it raises the GPS high above the handlebars.
This Garmin mount on the other hand has proved to be ideal for me. A caveat - I have the mount attached to the stem of my bike. Since the stem is square, I have no problems securing the mount so that it doesn't move at all. I have no problems putting the GPS into the mount, nor any problem staking it out of the mount. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to adjust the angle of the GPS, essentially it is parallel to the stem, but the viewing angle of the LCD on the eTrex 30 is large enough that this hasn't been a problem.
Three tips when attaching things to your bike with zip ties: 1. Use a piece of inner tube as a shim. It increases the friction between the part and the bike frame and it protects the bike frame from scratches. 2. Use a third hand to tighten the zip ties. The third hand is a tool sold for working on bicycle brakes. With it you can get the zip ties tight enough to break them, so certainly tight enough for most mounts. 3. When using replacement zip ties, buy UVsafe ties. Some plastics break down on long term UVexposure, some don't. It's worth buying the UV safe ones so the ties don't become brittle over time and you find yourself watching your GPS bouncing down the road.
Rodrigo Job, February 7, 2013 This accessory is very good. My clients love it!
Monahmat, December 28, 2012 I received one of these mounts last year for Christmas and
purchased one this year for my girlfriend. It works great
with our Garmin 62s and Oregon 450. The pull tie attachment
system makes installation fast and easy. If you are
traveling and renting bikes this works great at the install
requires no tools and leaves no marks when removed.
Multiple fastening holes allow for mounting in several
different locations on the handlebars.
Two notes: If you hit a very large bump at high speed the
mount may rotate on the handlebars. This happens seldom and
is easy to correct but be aware. Also, some reviews say the
device is not held securely. I have never found this to be
the case. Just make sure you properly seat the GPS in the
mount so that the clip locks and there is now way this will
ever come off!
This is an inexpensive and effective mount. I highly
