    you could put the magnet in the supplied foam backing easy enough.

    and i had to drill the bottom to get the power cable through in the right spot. didnt water proof it, but i drilled the hole small and filed it to shape so it fits snug.

Was just wondering if anyone has something similar?
    Check this one we offer. The mount is available with different holders, and add the Sekure Strap to it for a very secure hold:

    I just have to ride with it in my pocket with an extra battery at hand. Mounting docks are nice but I wouldn't trust it on my bike. I have a Softail so I couldn't imagine it on a rigid mounter engine which vibrates harder at stops. With the vibration on any Harley engine (and also factor in your pipe decibel level) I wouldn't trust and expensive hardware that doesn't hard-dock on.
    SHOWER? I'm setting up shortcuts on my homescreen, dammit!!!

    I used a Garmin GPS on my BMW R1100RS and my BMW R1100GS and I always had a lanyard on it even though the Touratech mount was rock solid. The lanyard saved a brand new Garmin 276 once.

    Today I installed a cigarette lighter on my Vulcan to hook my Droid to. However, I really don't see a mount that I trust enough to use the Google Maps with. Can anyone point me to the "ultimate" Droid motorcycle mount?

    If you like the way this mount looks in the pictures (you should add the strap too), PM me for a link and discount coupon code.



    The strap pictured below actually hard mounts between the mount base and the holder:

    I tried the Droid on my Suzuki V-Strom the other day and found it difficult to see in bright daylight. Voice commands worked great through my Scala 2, that was a plus.

    Maybe I'm just used to my Garmin 2610 which worked in all conditions, never an issue with the screen washing out.

    How do you guys find it in the full sun?
