GPS holder

It was a long waiting … and isn’t over yet, sadly,
but the progresses are evident:

Our gorgeous Mobile/Tablet/GPS Holder is on his way!

Being winter, tests will run slower than normal, so we thought it’ll be ready for the production to the end of February,
when we’ll give out our orders … hopefully together with yours …

The expectations was simple but indisputable:

steady & light:
minimal last for the tower paired to maximal endurance to vibes and other mechanical stress; even because it uses our Front Rack as additional fixing point;
functional & simple:
the 30 degrees adjustment, in 3 easy to set steps, is completely independent from the bar, fixing also the small rotation issue that was bothering some users; the adjustments will be possible without need for tools (yes, the pictures show a preliminary prototype, used to check form and functions, where screws are used for the adjustments);
versatile & elegant:
the base can be mounted and used even without the adjustment plate, in the same slant as the original cockpit (both have AMPS hole patterns),
while the design allows to use a big range of devices from mobile phone to 8″ tablet, always without interference with the original dashboard or windshield;

shortly: an original GiamaicaWorx design

I mean: we got it!
what do you think?

I doesn’t look as if the windscreen will be able to tilt up very much as it will interfere with the GPS mount. Perhaps I am not seeing it properly.

Hi Joe,
thanks for the comment! 🙂 It give us the opportunity to add something that we forgot to mention.
Of course the GPS Holder is made so that the windscreen can still be rotated to have access to the bags attached to the Front Rack.
As you can see we checked both with the OEM and with the Puig Touring, the latter giving a larger opening angle due to the more curved profile. With the Puig is the Hinge touching the GPS Holder which gives the limit, with the OEM windscreen is the windscreen itself. Both allow a normal, good access to the Front Rack. Of course, a GPS base will limit some more, for instance I checked with the one for Garmin 590 that I had, and with the Puig was still possible an opening like the the one with the OEM in the picture below. I am waiting for a Carplay, I will post some pictures as soon as I have it. We mean that as long as you have a 45°-50° opening you can still detach the tools bags.
In the worst case one have to remove the movable plate of the GPS holder, but there will be knobs, so it will still be a reasonable compromise.
And anyway the available space on and around the bar is limited, so there is a limit for how much stuff one can put there without getting some limitation… but we think we are making a very good use of it 🙂
