Evotech Performance - SatNav bracket
on: January 22, 2020, 02:00:02 PM
Thinking of going for one of these.
Looks a good solution and well made.
Has anyone tried one yet ?

I have one Chris. Yes it does vibrate but it is still okay for me.

Doh!
Thanks and apologies, I think it's an age thing....
Having read the feedback I think I'll pass on the EvoTech solution due to the reported vibration.
I currently use Triumph's standard bracket on the bars which is too low and can be distracting whilst riding.
It's disappointing that Triumph still haven't properly addressed this issue.

Triumph expect owners to get the Triumph app (ha-ha = when / if its ever available) and use it's turn-by-turn navigation.......in the naive belief that it will do everything a dedicated sat nav does.  :745:

Perhaps Triumph had the same issue with other designs as the evotech and others had and opted for a solution that did work (all be it not in everyones favourite position)

I went with one of these knowing there was a vibration issue, but similar to other posters I found that when you need to see the detail clearly you are generally riding slowish through built up areas and the vibration does not seem too bad then. Obviously the sate of our roads doesn't help (potholes etc), but it is acceptable to me and better than looking down at the satnav when using the OEM bracket.

Really easy - made my own following Xtof's design.

Stable as a stable thing without any vibe. 

Used 20mm x 500mm x 3mm thick stainless from eBay and a vice mounted metal bending tool.

can't get links to work tonight but search

Guy’s, does anybody know if there is a big difference in the window mount of the 2012 and 2013?
My vriend got his tiger in today, a 2013 explorer, but the evotech gps mount doesn’t fit, altough it is ment  for the 2013-2017 model.
