Thanks lloydyboy. For now I'm sticking with my Garmin Zumo on the CT - but if I revive my Pan European from its long coma, I may well treat it to one of these to replace its ancient satnav.  :028:

Had a play around with the Nav today. @Hound No issues with the touchscreen with my leather bike gloves, first touch worked every time. Volume in my helmet isn’t quite right so need to figure that out. Here are some more pictures of the mounting as asked @BeToney.

Yes there are a few different options for mounting - I suppose I should have given you the crossbar type since you're currently using the handlebars,

Hope it works for you!

Thick enough steel on mine to be solid. I don't notice any effects from vibration.

I have a 2013 bike so mounting will be different to yours, however. On mine it uses the upper two screen bolts in the front, on yours it appears to bolt in from each side (shown in pics below).





At $17.29 inc shipping you may feel it's worth taking the risk!

Thanks for the quick reply.  That bottom photo is the best I have seen showing the thickness of the metal, it does indeed look very robust and solid. 
I decided to buy the one with the cross bar option instead of the mount plate as shown.

To anyone who has used one of these GPS mounts: how well has it worked for you and are the vibrations acceptable while riding?

I currently have my GPS mounted on the handlebar and it is rock solid but I would like to move it into more line of sight above the dash.

Thanks for any input.

I'm near Uttoxeter, so not a million miles away. I often go up to Derbyshire for a rideout. However, wimp that I am, I am a fair weather rider only, and bikes are currently hibernating till April.
