    Sat nav is a new era for me.
    Going to buy A Tom Tom rider 500.
    Has anyone got one and what do you think of it?
    Are sat navs easy to mount to the blackbird?

    Really easy.. various methods employed, the most popular with a ram mount in the centre stem nut

    I have several gps units.
    I much prefer garmin.. but lots of people are now using a smart fone and waterproof case
    Look in the App Store, there are loads of options

    Are those things universal, John (I mean do they come in a one-size-fits-all)? I want one for my baby Panzer that will also fit on my, ahem, next 'Bird. What do I type in the Amazon search engine?

    An old car Satnav works fine, you just need a case to keep the water out (got mine from Fleabay) and it'll need wiring up, as most car satnavs won't give you more than a couple of hours on battery.

    I don't want a sat nav, I'd use my iPhone :p Want a mount that fits all bikes.

    I totally agree.

    The budget version is to put a clear sandwich bag over it with a bit of tape round the arm.

    Or stick it in the map holder of a tank bag.

    Andy beat me to it... ( out on the lash yesterday, did not get back until gone 1 last night ).. Ram mounts do all sorts.
    You just ring them up, ask to speak to the ram man ( really ! ) and tell him what bike you want it to fit

    that's what a pillion with a map and stick is for. the pillion reads the map and then pokes you with the stick to indicate which way to go sorted :meparto:
