Mine arrived yesterday and it was fitted 20 minutes later, no issues at all. I’m just waiting for the rain to stop so I can give it a test.
Excellent product. Thanks for all the effort.  :028:

I also managed to install the bracket and reroute the power supply cable from my auxiliary socket.  :001:
Next step : test-ride  :305: :305:
Then I'll remove the old official Triumph bracket from the steering wheel and put some tie-wraps on the cable.

Great thanks to guiri and Xtof :047: :047: :047:

That's fine, no sweat. Thanks for letting me know. A couple of days don't matter Amigo...

Hope you get to try it out soon!
I'll send you the payment link for the shipping, thanks!

I finally got round to fitting mine today, pretty straight forward stuff. the mounting holes required easing out with a rotary file to allow the bolts to pass through easily. I wasn't going to use the rubber feet but changed my mind and used the large ones in the end, I think they're probably a worthwhile addition. I then took it for a very short test ride.

The wobble compared to the Evotech bracket is reduced by about 90% and there's no high frequency vibration of the type you get with the mirrors. Best of all is that I can position Satnav absolutely perfectly for me, just below my natural sightline and just above the speedo and at exactly the right angle.

I think it's unlikely that the wobble can be eliminated completely given the weight of the Satnav and the leverage it has because of its distance from the mounting points. I reckon any further support framework would ruin the nice, clean appearance of this solution.

All in all this mount works much better than the Evotech one and cost less than 1/2 the price.

A big thank you to Xtof, T800XC, guiri and everyone else that had a hand in making this happen, I'm extremely grateful to you all  :047:

Same here: I've tested it on a 5 hour trip and I'm very happy with the results:
- screen is very stable
- I only need to move my eyes (instead of my whole head) to look at the TomTom
- Much safer
It look great as well  :008:

One question:
I now have the Tomtom wiring to the main battery (plug close to the steer), but that is 'always on'

What is the easiest way to change the wiring to 'only on when ignition is on'

I take the power for my TomTom from the front sidelight wiring on my Gen-2. Powered only when the ignition is on.
