Anyone had any experience with Arrow these?

Bought a new bike earlier this week and instead of buying a bike computer and carry the gps in my pocket I thought I'd try this.

A friend of mine has one for the e-trex vista that he uses on his atv out in the woods. He says it holds the unit securly and works good as a speedometer. Hopefully you aren't going across tha same kind of ground, logs, rocks and foot deep water. I can't think that the bracket for the 76 series would be a bad one. Garmin seems to stand behind their product

I have a bike mount for my 60c...
Love it...

fun to watch my speed...
I watch my distance away from where I started...
also my time back to my starting point.....

maps could help...just don't ride far enough to matter...

I`ve got a ram mount in my truck and on my bike and love them. The extension arm is nice because it gets the gps up off the bars where there is no room for it. I only use this set up when I am exploring and not riding to hard. I dont crash often then.

My wireless Vetta died about the same time I got my etrex, and rather than buy a new computer, I bought the bike mount for my etrex and I've been happy with it so far--it comes with two different sized rubber spacers, so you can use either one, or both together, to get the most bombproof mount for whatever size handlebar you have. I've pounded the trails at Lebanon Hills and the Minnesota River Valley with it, and now I prefer it to the bike computer I used to have.

I also have had excellent results with this style mount for my Rino

Have 1 mounted on my ATV and a 2nd one mounted on my motorcycle. (I also have 12volt outlets on both machines so I can plug in my GPSr)

I have never had a problem ...even on very rough trails.

ps. Notice that I am aparantly lazy....my bikes use gas. Wink

Have one of these for a 76CS........works really nice. It locks the unit into place very securely . Just donít take a tumble.

Best place to buy -> 25.95 -> http://www.gpsnow.com/gmmap76.htm

Hope that helps

Here it is mounted. My wife has it on her bike. She literally biked right up to the cache today.
