Ram Mount for a 60csx gps

Does anyone have a garmin gpsmap 60csx mounted on their bike? I have been looking at the mounts available for this unit at www.ram-mount.com and there are quite a few available.

I am thinking the RAM-B-149ZU which mounts onto the handlebars is probably the best bet that will work but is also the most likely to be less stable.

I had the Ram handlebar mount for my Nuvi, I found that it seemed to vibrate a bit too much and I didn't l like it moving around. I ended up buying a baseplate and the Motowerk (Speedy) Tom-Tom mount for the windscreen bracket and mounted my Nuvi above my instrument cluster.

Tucked under the windscreen, it is more protected from the elements too.

+1 on the wirst strap tie. I hit a turkey (yeah I know, I do live in KY though) and my GPS was the first thing to hit the ground. A few scratches and it was back in place, but a close call for a nice unit.

I found the handlebar mount plastic to loosen after 15K where the gps bracket snaps into the handlebar attachement. So it shakes a bit, but at 16 dollars I could probably get a new one.

I'm using a Ram mount and a 60 csx, I've been on a lot of rough roads lately, no problem.

I've bought a few RAM mounts from GPSCity, not one for the 60CX, but I did buy one for a Vista HCx for my KLR, and one for my Nuvi 550 for the V.

Here is GPSCity's Canadian site if you're not familiar with them.

Which in turn could mean that you’ll have a hard time telling the paramedics where to find you
