ultra 250 gps mount
Im looking at a couple of options for mounting my gps, either on the glove compartment lid or the handle bar. Which is a better option? I have a garmin etrex. How big is the glove compartment gps mount? WIll I be able to open up the lid with the gps in the mount or should I go for the hadle bar setup?

I like my choice
I used a quick disconnect Garmin Marine mount. It comes
with a 3 screw hole flat disc that permanetly mounts on the
flat silver surface of the left cowling. I then put a SS split
ring mounted under hood. Attach lanyard there in case it
comes off mount. That's saved me a GPS a couple of times

Which etrex do you have? If you have one of the color series etrex's I have an extra mount you can have.
Mounting to the glovebox lid works fine. You will have no problems opening the lid. I was going to go that route but changed my mind and decided to go with the handlebar mount. I just really didn't want to drill holes in the lid just in case I changed gps's in the future.

The disk is only about 1/4" high with a round 2" knob that secures
the holder that goes on the GPS. All of this is way lower than anything
around it. I used a cover all the time. This is the beauty of the
mount, quick disconnect from boat. When its hot I also take it off
the mount and swing it into the storage compartment with laynard still
attached to split ring. Out of sun and prying eyes!

Bass Pro Shops / Outdoor world usually has them in stock, about $20 or so

personnal choice but you cant go wrong with one of these a must do is attach a safety lanyard i just use one of those small phone/camera coil types and clip it onto a rubber o-ring which is between the start/stop and gps.
