New Mount

Watch on Vimeo

With an unusually small handle bar on my Scout, I couldn't find a decent place to mount my accessories etc.
I decided to make one that utilizes the actual handlebar mount and now I can use an assortment of accessories.

Job well done Tezza.

Perfect, now sell the idea back to Indian so you can live high off the hog.

Another fine Tezza product!!

Thanks guys.

Great idea.

Good stuff mate! Foreign orders at work mike it worthwhile.

Nicely done Terry. I have the same problem, nowhere to affix anything. And with the screen on makes it even worse.

That looks great. Nice fabrication job.

Nice one Terry. I see you have a Navman navigation system. I have a older Garmin zumo but I can still upload the newest maps en my brother Jan Dirk has a Tom Tom system. For what I can see the never Tom Tom has the most possibilties and is very easy to use at least compairing to my Garmin. What do you think about the Navman? Is it good and easy to use?

I use three systems as none of them seem to be 100% of what I want. Have found problems with each, Google, IPhone reception, mapquest, and the Garmin may not recognize certain things, like telling where the Rock Creek Bridge is on route 66. Google lists it. I think I have found a way to transfer my google mapping to the garmin.

Let me know how you do that Randy

Will do Valerie, once I have it perfected with the Eureka Springs trip. It involves having Garmin Basecamp app loaded on your computer, using this link, http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/convert?output, to convert the Google url of the map, then download the conversion from GPSvisualizer into the Garmin basecamp app, then import that from there into your garmin device.

I'll use paper that is way too much trouble. I know how to read a map.

Gert, I've had 3 Navmans for my car and all had problems with screen going blank. I replaced the battery in the last one and it still did the same thing so I removed the battery and connected it so that would have power from the USB connection. It seemed to work until I tried it on my bike but the screen blanked out after half an hour.
I found the original power cord (that goes into the lighter socket) and tried it today and it worked perfectly.
So I discovered that you cannot use a USB outlet for the Navman. It appears that there is some circuitry in the plug that controls the unit.
So I now have it for my bikes. I bought a Tom Tom six months ago for the car and it is a better unit in all areas.
It notifies me every couple of days for uploads of speed cameras and updated maps etc. It picks up my home wifi and does the download.

Yes my Garmin is the same way, needs to original cords that came with it for proper charging and and transfers.
