If so a little advice, be prepared to strengthen the shelf with something between the edge, I have a RAM mount fitted on one of my 11's, the shelf itself isn't really that strong and I managed to crack mine with just the weight of a GPSV :(


Yes it is for the 1100 and it's not the plastic under the screen. I'm not into making modifications to the actual bike which require drilling holes in any of the plastic

I've had the home made (by someone else) shelf for quite awhile but at 5mm thick it was quite heavy even for aluminium

so I made up a new one using the other shelf as a template with a thinner ali tread plate similar to what I used for the Cooler tray on the trailer below.

It seems I never finished this topic.

The large X-gripper that I ordered for my Sat Nav.

As set up on the dash shelf.

Techgripper to the left with the twin power supply behind and to the left. The X-gripper to the right. There's also a GoPro cam mount but it's not used and the plan is to get the GoPro fitting for Tech mount as I only use the phone as a music player. The screen is ear marked for replacement.

Phone and Sat Nav. mounted on the shelf. Both mounts can be used vertical, horizontal or anywhere in between. The Sat Nav. has a 6 inch screen which is larger than the new TomTom rider which is a planned upgrade.

Won't the device start to vibrate itself out those cradle-fingers (left or right side) over a couple of miles/hours there?

The phone or the Sat Nav. have never vibrated out of their respective mounts but (there's always a but) I have had the Sat Nav. get thrown out once. Not through anything on the bike but from our wonderful (not) maintained roads.

The X mount came with a rectangular rubber retainer which I started using after that incident and you can see it in the picture showing it mounted to the dash shelf.

Now that I have some work coming up the plan is to get a the new TomTom rider and mount that permanently to the bike and the current sat nav. can stay with the car.

Due changing to this CAT thing am I in (some) need of a reliable car holder, hence the interest.

Little demo of the phone mount I use - wish they'd make a larger version for the GPS as it would be more secure than the Ram Mount product

I was circling on a thing like this as car-holder:

http://www.slipgripcarmounts.com/SlipGr ... 71939.html

http://www.ebay.com/itm/SlipGrip-PRO-Mo ... Sw5ClXxn6Y

Quite slim, snug fit, avoiding any vertical slipping of the device.
For the panel van and the Carina Combi I'll need two, both vehicles already featuring phone console/bracket from the Nokia cradles...
I do wonder if keeping the inductive aux-antenna plate of the CARK-91 hands-free set active, might also work/improve reception of the CAT inside that cage...
Or skip the whole installation and just press [speaker]...

[edit]:
did some inet search while posting this and ended up ordered two holders at the vendor's store which provided a) a 10% discount on the items and b) additional savings on shipment costs compared to the conditions on their eBay shop... go figure...

I found the same when I ordered the Ram Mount products; bought from their shop instead.
