Mr. C, October 16, 2012 I wanted to use my own Zumo 660 on a rental bike. The
standard Zumo 660 wiring cradle was a bit of an octopus was
not practical for quick and easy mounting. I decided to
use the car mount cradle in combination with this handlebar
The initial setup and fitting of the strap is a bit
fiddly, with a high potential to lose the steel pin that
holds the strap to the mount. Once fitted and under way,
the weight of the Zumo kept causing the mount to rotate
down. I ended up re-tightening and propping the mount up
with a stick and some tape.
After about 400 miles, I had it working to a point where it
only needed to be adjusted every 100 miles or so. It was
clear that the Zumo 660 was too heavy for this strap
mount. My trip was only 1200 miles, the GPS was reasonably
secure and never seemed at risk of popping off, even riding
some rough and dirt roads. If I were to do it again, I
would tackle the octopus and use a normal motorcycle mount
Dianne, July 6, 2011 I was disappointed in the long delay from order to delivery.
The unit is perfectly suited for my application, but there
are a few issues:
This is mounted in a minibus on the grab-rail for boarding
passengers, just above the manual door lever to the right
of the driver. The bar is 1-1/4" diameter. It was very
tough to determine which cut to make on the strap, as 1-1/4
is the "in-between" diametet. Erring on the side of
caution, so as to not cut too much, I cut it to leave more
strap to grab, but cannot seem to get it really tight and
it can, with minimal force, slip around the bar. I can add
a "gripper pad" under the mount, but not what I was hoping
Secondly, I had hoped that this could be easily removed
from the bar on a daily basis, as the bus is stored in a
remote parking area and we didn't want to "advertise" that
there is a GPS unit on board. Unfortunately, the strap is
quite tough for me to tighten, even with the sensible
finger-tab on the end... almost too much for my old small
Otherwise, I'm pleased with the design/concept and the
overall quality of the piece.
