    GPS

    I currenly have a GPS like this:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/Blue-Garmin-Etre...item27bb2be61d

    I hate having to hold on to it while checking speeds. I would mount it to the bars but dont feel like messing with the bar setup to make room for it.

    Does anyone use one of these jogging gps watches?

    I read the online manual for it and it says it has max, average, and current speed displays. And it has a high sensitivity receiver for shaded tree areas which my current one doesnt. I can barely get mine to work in my neighborhood with the trees around.

    get the mount kit for that gps and take it apart, it will come with a different battery cover that clips into a mount, drill a hole on your glove box and mount it, thats how I have it, I can upload some pics if you want me to.

    You can try this if you have a P and not a PX. On the pic with the hood closed you can see how much room you have.
