Re: Kit to lock SatNav to RT
Well I want one. Not suprising right?
First is just for the sun shade! Yes I have used the mentioned product and it is a nice product but with putting the Velcro around the GPS, even my old 2820, I did not care for. I did have it on my 660 I just replaced after 10 years so I am not knocking the product as it works.
As is said, and will ALWAYS be true is, locks only keep honest people out. A determined thief will take what is yours if he or she wants it bad enough. I like this as it will stop the thief of opportunity, meaning not gonna take it if it is any hassle or will draw attention to myself to get me caught. That is all I expect of this device. I want to be able to walk in and pay for my gas and get a drink while my bike sits in a relatively close proximity to me. I always throw my jacket over the shield and dash to cover it anyway.
As far as removal, with a shield down those torx are hard to get at and you would need to know the nut size and carry that with you. Not something a thief of opportunity would have. Also it looks like that bend that comes down helps cover that nut from general sight. We are seeing the pictures strait on or pointed a little upwards, not looking at it from standing beside the bike.
I like it as it has potential to mount other things on it. I am not sure what, but my Fast Pass for the Turnpike comes to mind right away.
If I go to eat and can not look out a window and see my bike, everything comes off and goes in cases. I like this for quick stops for a little piece of mind but it does not take the place of full lock up of overnight parking or a sketchy neighborhood.
Not listed on the US site so I sent an e-mail. I can live without it, but I see value and uses for it.
