That is the RCU shelf and I had one on my first (99) LT. I found it to be very good and planning on getting one for my new LT. No experience with the other, but as I recall it is a pricier unit and for me not worth the extra $$ considering I was happy with the RCU.

I have the RCU.

I wish I had the BMR. The BMR seems more stable than my RCU. My RCU vibrates, thus, my GPS vibrates.

Just my $.02

I too have one & it did vibrate when I first got the bike. The 2 mounting points for the shelf are part of the plastic under the dash cover. Mine broke both mounting points off several years ago & I rebuilt them from metal. Now there is little to no vibration. If the RCU shelf was not already on the bike when I bought it I would have gone with the BMR shelf.

I can't speak to the other brand, but I do love the BMR Shelf. Holds the GPS, XM radio, and FRS Radio with little vibraion.

well thanks all for your responses looks like the BMR might be worth the extra $$

My machine shop budy built me an RCU type shelf out of spare aluminum when I first got my LT.

We could have extended the shelf and used a well nut to attach the shelf to the dash if we wanted, but we did not want to drill into the dash.

I like my RCU shelf, but it only holds my Valentine 1 so vibration is not a problem.
