Hey CCMP,

I originally tried putting my GPS on the Madstad, but I found it moved too much when travelling as it was directly coupled to the screen. I ended up relocating it to the handlebar. How do you find yours for stability?

Exactly the issue I have too. Time to get my thinking cap on.
Doesn't matter where I'm going, getting there on two wheels is always the better option.

Not Madstad related but maybe worth a look?

I have an unused set of those Givi brackets somewhere if you fancy trying it

I can confirm after 12 months of use that the gps is rock solid with the above mounting. No vibe whatsoever.  However the madstad plate is aluminium which makes welding bits on to it more difficult. It was worth the effort though.

Please don't be offended, but I am looking for an option that doesn't require such a huge change to the cockpit view. :034:

I'm hoping a subtly positioned bolt/bracket might help.
