This steel GPS Bracket from Square Deals is well
made and very easy to fit. Fitting requires drilling 2
small holes in the hinged front screen mount.
I had to build 2 new "Bus Shelters" for my SatNav of choice.
Previously I have used Perspex however Perspex is heavy and the
glue does not bond very well as a result I have had problems with
parts coming unstuck if I accidentally knock them. So this time I am
using lightweight ply, 5mm back and 2mm sides all firmly epoxied
together. I waterproofed with wood treatment then covered in Carbon
Fibre effect Fablon. Can be used a buoyancy aids!
My XCx on day 1. I fitted the Puig Screen, my new GPS mount together with one of my new GPS holders designed to hold my
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 phone. The Note 4 makes a great day to day GPS as long as it is not raining too hard
In the short term to charge GPS on the move I purchased a
twin socket USB charger which plugs into the DIN socket.
This is my setup for listening to
GPS and Music. A Samsung
HS3000 Bluetooth receiver,
my Audio Technica ANC 33
noise cancelling headphones
(Note Epoxy putty repair where
I accidentally pulled the lead
out). These are both attached
by velcro to the slimmest
rechargeable battery I can find
on eBay. The ANC33's will last
30 hours on a single AAA
Battery. The HS3000 will last 6
hours on a charge so for long
days in the saddle I need to
recharge on the move by
connecting the external
battery. This solution will last 4
whole days of riding before a
recharge is required.

Longer term I like to hardwire in 12v power for my GPS, phone etc. The option on the
left I have been using for 3 years. The next two are suitable replacements, all from eBay.
Leather gloves are not much use with touch screens. I have tried special
screen contact paint on my gloves but it is not very effective. So I buy a
cheap rubber tipped stylus and wire it to my bike
