GPS Mount.. up high or down low?
I have a Garmin Quest that I intend to use on my DL. I'm riding it home from a dealer that's about 3hrs north of me, and I want to plan a good route though lots of hilly roads to assist with breaking in the motor. So, I'm thinking about bringing my GPS and a mount to the dealer and installing it in the parking lot before I head home.
I'm looking at the various mounting options, and it's looking like I want to mount it on top of the gauge cluster, rather than down on the handlebars. The idea being that I'm keeping my head up and eyes pointed forward, rather than pointing my head down to look at the GPS and taking my eyes off the road completely.
But, I've never mounted a GPS on a bike before. Up till now, I've just been keeping it in my pocket and consulting it when stopped. And, I've never ridden a V-Strom before. Which mounting method is less distracting? Up high, or down low? Does mounting it up high interfere with forward visability at all?
