Gps/camera mount

I run a "cheap" Garmin Nuvi GPS on my motorcycle, and on another of my bikes I have mounted it with a 1" Ram ball mount that screws directly into the handlebar clamps. Although a slick mount, the vibrations that comes up through it, just about fries the GPS unit. I have been looking for something other, and came across a couple models that screw into the gas cap mount, and they are not that expensive, and the vibration there is not an issue. Ram model B410U. Would also make a convenient mount for either camera or phone, I imagine unless you run a tank bag.

I am looking at the Garmin Nuvi model as an addition to my fz09 so your post caught my attention. I am planning on mounting the gps in the same manner you did but now may hold off due to the vibration issue you referenced.

A friend recommended i go with the TomTom Rider model. They sell a premium package, which includes all mounting hardware and even have option to purchase anti-theft as an add-on.

I guess i am just looking to see what you decided to do and how things turned out for you since your post.

Thanks in advance for your help.
