Handlebar mount for Garmin GPS 38/GPS 12 Units

yes, these are 15+ years old, but still work well.

i have been wanting a handlebar mount (both have same dimensions), but they're
so old mounts have been long discontinued by garmin.

would someone have one of these models to sell w/ the mount?
i think GPS 12 XL are the same size, too.

thanks, rodney

it was just what i was hoping for.

for those wondering, you punch in the brand and model; it will show the holders(s)
available, choose, then select the type of base you want. for my ancient units there
were 6 to choose from. and you can choose others for different base applications while
retaining the same holder. just....too....cool.

if you do buy something from them, be sure to let them know you saw it on bikeforums. networking at it's best.

they also have mounts for ipods and cell phones.
and, for us hams, steel plates to put mag mount antennas on!
check it ouuuut!

well, gee, maybe i shoulda put this thread in with electronic gadgets. sorry.

i'll get it shifted.

meanwhile, i took some before and during pics.
it didn't come with any instructions, but the description on the website suggested putting
a chunk of rubber between the handlebar and the mount base. my bar is pretty undersized so i'll go cut a chunk off a neighbor's truck tire tonight. the gap would take most of a roll of electrical tape. whoa, cindy and i are going to bike depot tomorrow. i'll scrounge in the trash cans for a ruined inner tube. should work. i'll get a big enough piece to put on my headlight, too- it DOES have electrical tape.

will add another pic or two when mounted.

after pic

here we go.

to make the base fit around the handlebar i got some fuel line from the neighbor-
next-door's jet powered dragster (true). it's clear and thick but had to cut a chunk
and double up inside the base to make a super tight fit.

he also brought a piece of coolant hose from the d'ster to experiment with. i used it to replace the electrical tape i had under the headlight.

with all this racing stuff i wonder whether the bike will go faster....

i'm sure the bike can. as for me i doubt i can make it go to it's potential.

story over.

october 2012 update:

the holder does it's job well, very pleased.
the gps does an excellent job of getting me lost, and it has a
backtrack function to make sure i stay lost!

I agree, a gps is fun in the woods, I used to use a (still have) original garmin 76c, using a ram handlebar mount. Can place it exactly where you want it, and it stays put.
