GPS Mount

REASON FOR PURCHASE: Navigation
I had an older Garmin Nuvi 350 laying around the house and decided it would be much more useful if I put it on my Bee. However, I needed a ball mount to put the GPS unit on. So, I searched for “Garmin Nuvi 350 Mount” on Amazon and the Arkon GN032 came up. It was inexpensive and looked like it would do the trick!

COMPANY EXPERIENCE: Great
Amazon is fast and competitive as always – I paid $10.02 (the price is currently only $7.20!) with no shipping charge and a two day delivery thanks to Amazon Prime.

INSTALLATION: Easy
Installation was very simple and done in 3 minutes! Just unscrew the two screws leaving the two halves separated, then place them around your bar and re-insert the screws – that’s it!

MY THOUGHTS:
I know that the Nuvi 350 is not weather proof or rugged like the Zumo series. However, what I have works great and was already paid for! So, after a quick installation, I setup my 350 and it works great! I can easily see the screen and the readout, and it’s nice having a GPS available to use. So if you have an old GPS laying around the house, why not use it on your bike!?
