    Looking for a RAM amps motorcycle handle bar mounting system for a DRZ400. Anyone have the following components for sale so I can pick it up this week?

    Components:
    RAM-B-347U - RAM 2" x 1.7" Base with 1" Ball that Contains the Universal AMPs Hole Pattern
    RAM-B-149Z-QU1U - RAM Zinc Coated U-Bolt Base with 1" Ball & Medium Length Double Socket Arm for Rails from 0.5" to 1.25" in Diameter

    I'm hoping this will be enough to hold my Garmin Montana 610 and the power cradle that's already on order.

    Bass Pro carries a large selection of RAM mounts and accessories. You might want to check them out.

    Will do! I only checked Sail so far in Burlington and they didn't have what I was looking for. I'll give Bass Pro in Vaughn a chance though. Thanks!

    You can probably get expedited shipping from GPS City, Radioworld, or GPS Central before the end of the week as well...

    Looking for info for a gps that will support off road maps and fit in my ram phone mount if possible. Don't want to spend to much. Any insights?

    if by "RAM Phone Mount" you mean X-grip, you won't really find any. Also X-trip has been known to loose phones when banging through more rough stuff... At the very least put an elastic over the phone, or better, tether it somehow when off road.

    Actually the newer X-grip comes with an elastic rubber which acts as a secondary secure mount. I have used it during the roaming rally without any issues. Maybe i got lucky but it was not loose even after the ride back from Ottawa.

    For secondary navigation, i use a Garmin Nuvi with Osmand installed. works quite well with base camp but i must confess that i rather using it on the smartphone. Eliminates all the shenanigans of too many waypoints which gamin hates.
