In order to make the ColorMap GPS fit under the Boston Acuoustics Dash Box, I had to go to a remote GPS antenna doodad. I mounted this antenna high up on the Clearview windshield and ran the cabling along the edge of the windshield under the Stealth Edging that I use. This worked great until I hit a large pot hole in the road. The bump caused the suction cups to tear loose and left the antenna dangling. I plan on afixing the antenna more permanently to avoid this problem. The GPS takes just a bit longer than it before to acquire the satellites but it no longer seems to lose their signals as often. I also chucked the stock mounting base that comes with the GPS and instead, installed an aftermarket mount for an RT. Cascade BMW is selling these but they're designed by a local rider. They helped to lower the GPS's height on the shelf also. It's made of aluminum and is bolted solidly to the dash shelf. There are rubber washers that provide some shock protection to the GPS itself. The down side is that I cannot easily remove it from my dash. However, I plan to add some data wires to interface with the GPS in case I want to hook up a laptop to download a route. Then, I won't need to remove the GPS and it is secured to my bike. The sunshade provided by the Boston Acoustics Dash box was more than adequate for the Nevada sun. Joe Zulaski, 2001
