GPS on Ram mount
I don't even notice or bump the gps at all when riding. I've been very happy with it. I did have to modify the ram mount to get it to fit this position.

Do you need reading glasses? This isn't a slam. The Garmin E -series units have a small screen compared to the GPS V or GPSMAP 76S. Bouncing down the trail and trying to read the small screen is a challenge. Add the need for reading glasses on top of that and the E series is less appealing.
If your really shopping and have the bucks to spend call Cycoactive. These guys know GPS and bikes. Going high dollar with the Garmin GPS 176 solves the reading glasses issue with a huge screen. A color screen model is available too.

100000 track log points, 1000 waypoints, 1000 icons!
Also you can save them to disk(MMC/SD) to record even more!

I am on my third Legend in less than a year.I works fine in tight slow speed trail work. But when I ride high speed desert, the high rpm vibrations will kill the screen.I get horizontal lines in it.
Garmin has been great and will send me a new unit in about ten days.
When I spoke with Cycoactive about my problem, they sent me some softer rubber bushings for the mount.
My next trip to the desert will be in May, so I won't know how it works until then.
I plan on taking a back up unit in my pack on the next trip just in case.
