Just like the other review. You can use a cheaper GPS with this Givi Holder. It keeps the vibs low so the unit will not freeze up.and the rain out. It even works with winter gloves! No problems at all. My new 159.00 Nuvi from Costco works perfect every time. I don't have to worry anymore with the GIVI S950 holder...
I saw this at last years BMW National Rally. I don't have 1000 bucks for the ZUMO M/C gps. So I purchased a cheaper Nuvi 780 GPS from Costco for 180.00.
It worked well on the bike in a gps holder for one ride... then it started freezing up because of the vibs coming from the handlebars. Each use I would have to turn it off/on time and time again. We'll I purchased the S950 and it hasn't frozen up since. Works like a charm. No worries now... even in the rain. So if you don't have the coin for the Zumo think about this set-up!
I just got back from 3 weeks in New Zealand using this GPS holder. In general it works well enough.... most of the time. It comes with a rain cover that turns out to be useless; It keeps the unit dry, but because of fogging between the lenses, the GPS is unreadable in the rain. Also, threading the wire through the case each time you install the device to the bike is a pain. The quickly detachable mount slides right off, and stays put in use, though it looks like it might fall off too easily. The plastic lens on the case should be non glare material, because as it is there is too much glare to be readable. Worse, there is a pucker in the upper left corner owing to the sequence of sewing the lens into the outer door The seam starts & ends upper left that makes it almost impossible to read that part of the display. On the Garmin I was using, that is where the distance to the next turn is displayed, the most often viewed part of the screen. The GPS unit should be firmed up with a custom cut piece of foam rubber to prevent the unit from jiggling on bumps. The quality is good, with a water resistant zipper, and installation is easy enough, and adjustability is good. For occasional use in fair weather, this holder will work well enough for the price. For a serious touring rider, the higher price of a dedicated motorcycle GPS is starting to look like a better value.
