Cup Holder with GPS

Anyone run the BMW cup holder with a GPS unit? I just picked one up from the classifieds and I can't get it to mount tight and not hit the Nav III when turning the bars to the left. Might try some foam tape to snug it up closer to the grip.

Re: Cup Holder with GPS

I don't use a BMW GPS so cannot really answer your question. I do however use a BMW cupholder and it seems to me that it is made to fit a specific place on the left handlebar so moving it around might be tough.

That's what I did and it works great.

Yep, found some in the garage and it worked perfectly. I can now sip my latte while riding.
