    GPS Mounting + Fuel Extender testing

    Has anyone here mounted a GPS? I want to mount it on my stock handlebars. Any tips / pics would be appreciated. This is to really monitor the fuel range.

    I have a set of Garmin 530 GPS/Radios and I'd love to use them but I'll go for any Garmin that will give me good GPS data. We do long distance rides and I want to tackle the mystery fuel issue once and for all. I have the fuel extender and am in a good position to fully test the full range of the tank before and after the extender install because I always have 3+ wingmen with extra fuel when I run all the way down.

    I don't mind buying any extra parts to fabricate a good mount; I just need some advice to go in the right direction.

    I look forward to reporting back with a full set of before and after data on this.

    Best,

    I kinda like Tom's the best so far, although i hate to drill in visible areas. Beagleman put one on the bars.

    I use the Garmin GPS Map 76csx. It gives me all of the channel markers and depths of water on the lakes that I ride. I mounted it on the glove box cover and seems to be working great.
