Home made GPS / Smartphone mount

Hi guys.

Happy new year for you all.

Getting a few days vacation, I did a GPS / Smartphone over the dash mount inspired in SWMotech and Givi.

The pics and final result:



I can share the measurements that Iíve used, if any one is interested.


Drive safe,
Rui

Very nice. It's simple but effective and doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Well done.

I'm going to do something similar as the SW Motech unit is getting play in the plastic base. I figure on using S40 PVC pipe with a long screw running through it instead if iron. Less weight up front.

I may try to salvage the Motech unit but it is still a PIA and not one of their better designs.

Hi Steve.

Sounds great. Please share the final result.

I used stainless steel that is much, much lighter. I thought in using PVC or equivalent but I prefer to weld it to the support pieces instead of using another screw.

Drive safe,
Rui

Welder and the skill to do it are not in the picture for me, PVC should do the trick.

BTW, I cooked a GPS inside one of those "waterproof" cases once. Forgot to cover it with the sun beating down when stopped for lunch. Stuff happens.
