CAUTION...PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE YOU BUY
on August 12, 2010
If you have not purchased this device, I recommend looking elsewhere. If you already have it--or you buy things in the face of one or two negative reviews--you should read on.
This GPS holder has two ball and socket connections. One is secured by a plastic nut. The other is just a snap in socket much like the one on your windshield GPS holder. The bottom ball/socket is secure enough. The top one is not. After a few weeks of use, mine this morning popped loose and the GPS went to the pavement, shattering the LCD display. In retrospect, if I had known, I would have secured the upper ball and socket with superglue or epoxy. You still have the lower ball and the handlebar attachment you can adjust.
When I bought this, my fear was that the clip that holds the GPS unit was risky. As it turned out, that part of the bracket is OK. That top socket, though, is really weak.
