This housing replaces "Base Plate I" and "Base Plate II" in all GadgetGuy bracket kits. A miniature push lock is incorporated into the billet aluminum body of the housing, which provides relative security for GPS on the bike during those few minutes when you are away from it -restroom or refueling stops. (All locks are keyed for the same key). The stainless thumbscrew next to the lock provides additional assurance for keeping the assembly closed. A steel helicoil insert in the aluminum housing is used for the thumbscrew in order to prevent premature wear out of the thread. The lock and thumbscrew could be used individually or sparingly. A few hours of experimenting with aluminum foil helped establish the dimensions of the cutout on top of the housing for the internal antenna of a 2610 unit. The cutout for the power switch on the right side of the housing is large enough for gloves. When the unit is placed in the housing and the housing is locked, the face edge of the unit is seated in to the plastic gasket carefully carved to follow the precise shape on the unit. This is the case when CNC manufacturing was taken to the extreme and a simple functional device became a work of billet aluminum art. “WOW!!!” is the word usually spoken when people see it for the first few hundred times.
GPS wiring options are available in Garmin Accessories (upper left corner of this page).
