Sat nav mount
on: February 17, 2013, 12:58:08 AM
Just a short post folks, I decided I wanted my satnav mounted behind the screen and out of the weather. I look on the net came up with a couple that utilized the screen mounts but at almost £100 too rich for me!
I decided to find a bit of 2mm aluminium and spent an afternoon manufacturing my own!

Here's a few pics, any questions, let me know!

Looks like a very close copy of the Migsel Mount.  Trouble is some of us do not have the engineering skills or facilities, so have to pay for the manufactured one.
Well Done tho.

Keep it on the Black Stuff or Dirt - BUT - Rubber Side Down.  Else it hurts!

 :150:Good effort. Problem is, with sat nav mounts like miGSels, the costs too make them are relatively to high, because the sales figures are  too low. On every sat nav mount he makes about 5 euro`s profit, after taxes. If you take into account the time and effort it costed to get this article sorted and sell-able, 95 euros is rather cheap. If you have the engineering skills to make one yourself, that`s fine of course.

I`m a fan of MiGSels stuff, I had one on my STX1300 and on all GSses. This was a strikingly simple sollution:

I had a Migsel on my 2nd PAN. and a Zümo 550 and a Camcorder mounted on it. It worked well.
