I've taken out the screw (that's hidden by the clutch cable in the pic above but you can see the R/H one) and replaced it with a longer bolt. I have an old ram arm that I have brought out horizontally to the left and mounted a vertical ram clamp so the sat nav sits to the left and below the instruments - just behind the l/h winglet.

When on full right lock the left handlebar goes over and clears the sat nav.

It's not ideal but will do until I decide on a 'proper' mount like the Givi bar.

I have this on my 2016.  I like the position, although a good sized tank bag might block it.  I don't know whether the spacing on the handlebar clamp bolt is the same for 2018...you'd want to check that to be sure it fits.  https://touratech-usa.com/Store/GPS-Bracket-Adapter-Handlebar-Clamp-Triumph-Tiger-800-XC-Explorer-1200

Good luck!

The original satnav mount from the original Tiger 800 fits and puts the satnav Level with the clocks.

Hi Philgm
I need to fit a Tomtom 550 to my new xca and I think that your home brewed solution looks pretty good. I'm thinking of having a go at making one myself, but before I take the plunge, can you tell me if there are any problems? I'm specifically wondering if the satnav vibrates, as the pipework  is quite long and of course is unsupported at the top

A bar mount is certainly the easiest option but I want a satnav above the instrument panel because I think it's safer and particularly because I always use a tankbag on long rides

Ive made a mount for the 2018 Tigers XRX, XRT, XCX, XCA, but it wont fit the base model XR.

Its on eBay for 45 but if you want one I can do it for 40 posted in UK. Cant upload images so the item number for ebay is 192603791793. Have a look and if its something youre interested in, fire a mail at me Nikwill26514@gmail.com.

If used with a Ram clamp it wont hinder screen movement either.
