This is a very sturdy cradle and will be excellent for anyone using the Etrex 10/20/30 on battery power only. Unfortunately, the current picture on Amazon for this cradle is not accurate and does not show the actual cradle. See http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/B005FRY11W/ref=cm_ciu_pdp_images_0?ie=UTF8&index=0&isremote=0 for actual picture. As mentioned in another review, the construction of the shipping cradle blocks the use of the Garmin 12v adapter causing unacceptable bending and strain on the plug. Even trying to use a standard micro USB adapter causes unacceptable strain on the plug because it hits the back of the cradle. If you were to leave it in place and never take it out of the cradle, maybe it would work. But, this is a handheld GPS, designed to be taken with you. If that is your use case, you should pass on this cradle because the adapter cable will likely fail.

I'm relatively pleased with this cradle for use on a mountain bike. I have it paired with RAM Mount RAP-274-1U , you need this part to act as the mount for the cradle. I'm really happy about one point with this cradle: It accommodates the etrex 20 with the belt clip attached. Because the cradle is deep enough for the clip, it is a bulky mount. See my picture to get an idea of the size of this particular set-up. As others mentioned, you really can't attache the charger while in this cradle.

It holds my eTrex10 snugly, Be careful though for the part that connects the cradle to my bike I ordered the wrong one. IT IS IMPORTANT TO BUY A RAM MOUNT BRAND. I made the mistake of buying the wrong one and had to return it to amazon.

I've used RAM mounts with the original eTrax, the 60C, and now the eTrex 20. The mounts hold the devices very securely and yet they can be easily removed. The latter is very important to me as I often use the unit on a motorcycle or bicycle and want to take it with me when I park.

I've used RAM products for years so I know what to expect, but to clarify it for new users: RAM mounting solutions are very flexible, but that implies there are separate items for a complete solution. For example, the cradles do not come with the diamond shaped ball attachments, the dogbone connector, or the base. However, I have the U-bolt handlebar ball base on the bikes, and the suction cup windshield base in the car. Once you have all the pieces, the cradle can be transferred from vehicle to vehicle in seconds, or a eTrex 20 can be swapped for a 60C in its cradle.

This doe solve the problem of being able to see your eTrex while bicycling. I, mistakenly, was expecting the mounting hardware to be part of the package but did come to realize that it would be impractical to do so as it can be mounted in so many situations. A simple pipe clamp from the local hardware store fit well. Fortunately, I had a suitable rubber strip to add allow it to fit snugly and reduce vibrations.

Used to hold my Garmin on my ATV's dashboard, kept it secure and in place throughout hundreds of miles of tough trails. A recommended purchase if you want to keep your GPS in view. Great product

I purchased this Cradle Holder to hold my Garmin eTrex 30 while riding my mountain bike. Along with this, I purchased the RAM RAP-274-1U. It holds the GPS unit securely and fits nicely into the handlebar mount socket. The roller on the top of the holder moves nicely over the top of the GPS and prevents marring the plastic. As usual, another nice product made by RAM.

Combine this with RAM Mount RAP-274-1U EZ-ON/OFF Mount with Swivel Feature & you can easily take & remove your Garmin Etrex on your bike. Roller at the top makes it easy to place GPS into cradle holder & holds it very securely. A quick push down & twist allows you to take off the holder & GPS & take it with you for added security.

Ram Mount for Garmin eTrex 20 works excellent! It holds the Garmin securely in place on the handlebars of my touring bike, with no fear of it bouncing out on ruff terrain, plan on using it also on my mt.bike.

this is solidly made and works fine, but has several annoying flaws. the little plastic wheel on the top vibrates when on my motorcycle and i can hear it buzzing even over the engine and wind noise. the back of the cradle has room for the optional garmin belt clip, which makes the cradle about twice as bulky as it needs to be. even with all this extra room in the back, the arm that comes over the top of the cradle still doesn't leave enough room to connect the USB cable for running the unit on DC power from a cigarette lighter. the cable does fit, but it has to be kinked really sharply which i worry could damage the cable eventually. for the price i expect better.
