I was looking if I could mount my GPS somewhere else. Why not on too the windshield:jawdrop:

So drilled four holes in the screen and the RAM put on.



Have tested it and it works perfectly:thumbup:. Almost no vibration and the windscreen is still adjustable.


Have the test drive on video:hurray:

Mounting GPS

Hi Peter. Great idea. Looks like there would be some room to adjust the mount position. I'm 6' 2'' so I will try moving it a bit to the right to allow more view of the tach. Also might try a bit higher if the windshield allows. Your video is impressive. When you turned off the paved and went overland I was surprised how stable the GPS was. Thanks for the idea. :thumbup:

I've been to a manufacturer today who makes windshields. He said that the windshield asily can handle this construction.

@Ridesalot; If you use the ram mount, you can adjust You'r GPS. You don't have to change the position of the Mount. Than you have enough view on the tach.

Mechanical strength is not the issue generally. Always ensure with plastics that the holes are deburred (smooth edged). Holes should be also be oversize to prevent the metal bolts working on the plastic edges. Failure to do both may result in cracks developing.

Santha,

This is also what the manufacturer said. Make the hole larger than the bolt that goes in. Have used a 4 mm bolt and drilled a 5.5 mm hole. I have used rubber between the RAM mount to absorb.
