What I'm saying is, I don't understand how it will all hold together. To me, that ball looks like a trailer hitch.mws said:Trust me, the Ram mount will secure the GPS... They were originally developed to hold electronics in private aircraft - even small laptops. I have one on my KTM dirt bike, and I do not have any issues with movement. And I do not have the clamp set very tight - I leave it tight enough to keep stable, but loose enough to move during a crash to minimize damage to the GPS.
Plus with the modular set up, you can mount different ball mounts to all of your toys and just move the clamp and cradle around with the GPS. I used a simple ear style mount to the handlebar clamp on the KTM, the street bike has different ear, and then I have a suction cup style to stick to the windishield of the cars.
The ball mounts work great. I have Ram mounting parts for my Jeep and dirtbikes. The ball is very secure, and absorbs vibration as well. Ram recommends that you position the mounting arm perpendicular to the direction of piston travel to reduce vibration to the device you are using. This sometimes puts the ball at the end of a L-shaped setup, and it still holds very securely.Rapt7ooR said:What I'm saying is, I don't understand how it will all hold together.
