    GPS recommendations

    What is a good, reliable, economical GPS to take on the lake and track speed and location?

    What is best place / way to mount the devise so as to not lose it at high speeds?

    Hi Bob! It was a prototype made for me by a guy in the UK. They were far too expensive to bring to market

    Your setup looks great

    How are you securing the bracket to lid.

    The bracket comes with a couple of bolts that come up thru the bottom of the glove box lid and thread into the back of the GPS mount.

    Thanks, i wasnt sure.
    I have those brackets on all our ATVs for GPSing needs.
    Of course there with the ball that connects to front rack but still same bracket.

    By the way that black hull with yellow hood is one of my favorite RXP,s.
    Looks really nice.
