I've had no problems with vibrations. The RAM mount is very solid. I like how you can adjust where the GPS unit is.
It's not hard wired yet. I just use batteries but I think I'll get the wiring kit that is available.
After reading this thread, I need to learn how to better utilize the features that are available. I need to find out what is the best software for off roading. Any recommendations?
I would go with an old copy of Mapsource Roads & Recreation from E-bay. If you get any kind of topo software with a Black and white screen you wont be able to tell the differance between roads and contour
lines. You could go to http://www8.garmin.com/cartography/
and see screen shots of all the differant maping software in the area you ride.
Heres a link for Roads and Rec: http://www8.garmin.c...Source/RnR.jsp#
Be carefull with the hardwire kit. My 60CSX can take up 23V DC. But some models need a voltage regulator. Just make sure you get the right set up or you could smoke your GPS. Here is another good web site for connectors and hard wire options:http://www.pfranc.com/
As you can see iv spent way to much time researching this.
