"Well what a day it was out there on the snowy coast. We had fun, got wet, cold, but never got discouraged. I enclose a pic here of the Magellan with the GPS tags we were chasing, and some others with the Garmins in them. We use Moving Ozi, as you know, to get where we need to be, and the eTrexes do that well in the vehicle.."
"This ifinder is mounted to the handle bars of XR-200 Honda and until about 6 months ago held a Lowrance Globalnav 212. Both the Lowrance 212 and Honda XR-200 are bullet proof units with multiple thousands of miles of dirt bike ridding, only time will tell if the ifinder is up to the same standard. The mount was built from two pieces of 1/8" aluminum sheeting sandwiched with a 1/4" of rubber between to isolate the vibration. The plastic ifinder cradle is Ram Mount part # RAM-HOL-LO2".
[For special mounting requirements, we can order for you any components from the RAM catalog]

"Thanks very much for all your help. I finally got my Magellan Platinum GPS installed and wired to my 2003 Yamaha RX1 (Snowmobile) I used the RAM Mount with the 2 1/4" round base 1 3/4" Arm and the Magellan Cradle.

I also purchased the Camera Mount so I can hook up my video camera and take some footage while I ride (just for the fun of it). I ended up wiring it back through to my battery on my snowmobile and placed a 2 AMP inline Mini-Blade fuse to protect the circuitry"

"I purchased a Garmin Legend in February 2003 from GPS Central. I wanted to mount it on my motorcycle (1100 Shadow).

I had a spare mount for a mini tach, so I strung a nylon tie strap through the tach mounting holes and then I was able to clip the GPS on with the belt clip. It works great. I also wired a powerplug into the bike and now can power the unit with the data/power cable without worrying about batteries running out.."

"This was from last January while I was flying the Calgary Balloon Clubs Cameron O-77 about half way between Langdon Balloonport and Strathmore. Good shot of the Vista, burner, envelope and of course ME! The Vista is great for getting an accurate heading and speed while moving slow or at high altitudes. I also download my tracks into Ozi for viewing at a later time"
John's RoadMate 700 installation in his Honda Civic

"Here's my installation of a new Magellan 700 in vent mount on my honda civic hybrid. I used a cell phone holder vent mount and slid the included Magellan bracket over it, to lead to a distinct, visible mount, that still matches the silver finish on the dash.

This is a FANTASTIC system, with very accurate turn by turn directions, and audio prompts. It also seems surprisingly sturdy and compact, with the entire unit pictured here (no extra control unit needed). I highly recommend it. Take your pick. (Note, I don't work for Magellan or anything). "

"Here are a couple photos of the RAM U-bolt handlebar mount and Magellan cradle installed on my Suzuki V-Strom. It's an excellent and effective way of getting good GPS capabilities on a budget. The RAM mount installed easily and quickly (in your parking lot!), and has worked exactly as planned for the 6000 km I've traveled in the few weeks since."

"The installation worked out just fine and I really like the Meridian Gold GPS. I used the RAM Meridian Cradle (RAM-HOL-MA2) and the RAM Adhesive Mount (RAP273U). Due to the rounded, porous form of the handlebar pod, I had to use Loctite Stick'n Seal for better adhesion. It's been installed for 3 weeks now and it's perfect. As a safety precaution, I secured the cradle around the handlebars with a plastic-coated metal coil wire. This is actually from a Sea-Doo watercraft tether cord. "

"This is my little contribution to your picture gallery. I installed my Garmin GPS V on my Honda Goldwing SE 2000 and last summer, we visited Maritime Provinces (Canada) and went to the famous "Cabot Trail" (Cape Breton). Great experience! Great GPS! Useful with several details of the roads and easy to read. We used it to schedule our daily itinerary and more, we discovered beautiful hidden landscapes when we went to little roads, mapped on the GPS with Canadian Enhanced Basemap. Thanks to Garmin!"

Click for mounting detail

"For anyone who wants to mount a GPS in a 2003 Ford Explorer..... here are pictures of the mounting for a GPSMAP 176C. The base was actually installed under the console and into a small piece of 3/4" plywood which was glued to the underside of the tray to make it solid. A 1/2 hole was drilled through to attach a 12" flexible arm to the base.

When its removed, and the stock rubber mat is put on the bottom of the tray, you can't tell there's a hole there. I mounted it this way so the bulky base wouldn't be exposed, and instead of three screw holes in the console, I have a clean 1/2 inch hole that is covered up."

PS Our trip was exxxxcellent. I loaded into my SPIII all the maps for our entire trip to the US with the exception of LA itself and it all fit PERFECT. Great piece of equipment, I call it. My wife thinks it is just another one of my toys."

"Geocaching has become somewhat of a passion for us and everybody we meet and talk to, we recommend you as the BEST place to purchase the BEST GPS equipment.

I also intend to purchase at some time soon a fixed unit (similar to the Garmin GPS 36 or the SkyMaster) to permanently mount in the truck to free up the GPS V as a handheld only.

My "primary" software for "navigation" is Microsoft MapPoint 2002 with the agps (www.techgt.com) add in."

"The bracket is bent so it attaches to the two screws that hold the ignition switch under the plastic trim, then comes up between the two plastic panels on the top of the dash. It then goes along the top of the dash to the trim piece around the ignition switch where it is bent in a box shape and rests on the trim around the Ignition/key trim. I can take the bracket off if required and will have no marks or evidence of the installation at all. P.S. The Street Pilot is a fantastic piece of equipment."

Vanier College Winter Bird Census, using Ventures & Legends

I don't think you currently have any "educational applications" included, so maybe this will be of interest.

In this photo you see one of our our Ecological Technology students using one of our Venture or Legend units to determine locations while doing a winter bird census (we had an early snow). The other device she is using is a parabolic dish for hearing the bird calls and songs.

The units worked great all season and the students in our field program love to use them."

"I'm in Toronto. I just phoned to say that the StreetPilot III has saved my life again. I'd be missing turns in all this traffic if it wasn't for this great machine! My eTrex often helped me find my way home when I first moved to Vancouver. Now that I have my Class 1 licence I use a StreetPilot III  as well in my trips all across North America. The StreetPilot III even found us the nearest hospital when I cut my finger and needed urgent medical attention."

"Basically it's the Garmin dash mount and it's held securely in place with two elastic/velcro straps. It's very secure, works extremely well and can be removed from the aircraft in seconds. The Garmin mount is fully adjustable so you can position the GPS for the optimum viewing angle. The straps are 1" elastic webbing with velcro sewn onto the ends so they can be tightly secured around the yoke."

"I just wanted to drop you folks a line and say hi, also to say how much I enjoy the new GPS 5. Ken, my best friend, and I had a great time doing the geo-caches in the Calgary area.

On my return trip to Vancouver, I talked to the pilot of the 737 I flew back on, and asked permission to use the unit onboard. He enthusiatically agreed, and went so far as to brief the flight crew as to my presence. It was great being able to ''see'' what I was flying over, and know what it was by the display on the gps."

Stuart mounts his eTrex Vista on his VFR with a Touratech cradle & RAM Mount


Click for larger view

"You remove the back-plate from the Touratech cradle (fixed with four small bolts). You can then take the two long bolts out of the back-plate and reposition them in the pre-drilled holes in the back-plate which match up with the top RAM ball bracket. Then re-attach the back-plate to the cradle and bolt on the RAM bracket.

"The bottom ball RAM bracket is fixed to the VFR top yoke using the supplied U bolt pushed up from underneath through two holes which you have to drill in the yoke. Be careful that the bracket and cradle are positioned so as not to foul the clutch fluid reservoir or the ignition key."
"The GPSMAP176C has turned out to be one of the best additions for my new BMW R1150GS Adventure. My wife Rada and my friend Tim and I am gearing up for a trip to the Black Hills in South Dakota from Toronto and plan on using the GPS with the MapSource Metroguide USA and Canada. I also recently returned from a motorcycle trip to the southern tip of Baja, Mexico and really wished I had my 176C. Now I'm ready for my next trip to Mexico and beyond! Some of the features that have really impressed me are the approaching street display, the voltmeter, the colour display, ability to configure the screen and accuracy of the mapping and services."
