Wobble from GPS?

Hi all.

Installed a 2610 (with BMR hood) on a BMR shelf mount recently, and have since noticed a slight vibration (wobble?) while sitting at consistent speed on open road. I'm thinking that the airflow under the windshield being disturbed by the GPS unit might be causing this.
Has anyone else noticed a similar thing, and/or done anything about it?
I'm thinking that a plastic or lexan cover, like a small extra windshield from the front edge of the shelf up to the back of the mount might help alleviate this, and also add some waterproofing for my electronic toll tag which I have secured to the shelf with duo-lock.
Thoughts?
