I have the Garmin StreetPilot III and trying to figure out a mounting solution in the center of the bike... Any suggestions?

Do you have any idea about prices and when can we get these cool bits..
01-20-2003, 12:07 PM
Sorry, I have no info except for the Givi Windshield... I found it at <a href="http://shop.store.yahoo.com/azmotorsports/apat500repwi.html" target="top">shop.store.yahoo.com/azmotorsports/apat500repwi.html</a> for $107.10.
The GPS can be bought at <a href="http://www.gpsdiscount.com" target="top">GPS Discount</a> which is one of the cheapest places out there, $700 or so. If you buy it at Best Buy or local retail store, you are looking at $1000 before taxes.
The bags and the CD Player pictures are taken from an Italian website, where they were displayed in a showroom that took place in August/September of last year. I will let you all know if I can find the prices. I am going to try and call them directly in Italy and if its on the market, I will try to get importing information for everyone. Until then, we can just dream about these cool items.

Thanks for posting the photos. I am interested in the CD player, Is it one disk or more? Is it also a radio? A CB? Does it use speakers in the dash or do you have to wire your helmet? I know you don't know the answers yet but I thought I would ask in case any of our Europe riders know yet. Of Course I am also interested in the price, and when these accessories will reach the US.

The speakers are in the dash - the dummy panels are marked as such in the European manual. You can make them out quite clearly in the background of the photo.
As for GPS mounting, I'm pretty sure the GPS V in the photo is mounted with a RAM Mount U-Bolt onto the wing mirror... although I guess you'd have to mount it on the right bearing in mind the CD player will ultimately go on the left.

I should be done setting up with Givi today...They have a windsheild, a passenger back rest, a top case and all the mounting stuff. I will publish pricing as soon as I find out what it is exactly.
01-23-2003, 07:31 PM
I ordered the U-Bolt Ram mount about 3 days ago. I finally saw where he mounted the GPS. I was looking at it from another perspective. I will take pictures once it is installed and post it in this topic. Thanks.

OK, I hunted down the article from the cyberscooter.it site that accompanies the photo at the top and ran it through a translator. It's enough to get the general idea... this is REALLY interesting.
"Integrated system of communication: draft of a module that allows conversare with the passenger, to listen to the radio (in cap or through loudspeakers), and to answer to the cellular telephone, commanding all with a satellite posizionato on the left notebook of the handle-bar. Functions already seen on version SL of the Piaggio X9, but in Aprilia assure that componentistica and ingenierizzazione is independent. It will be a optional available for the range Atlantic and Scarabeo from 125, 200 and 500cc. Deliveries previewed in spring therefore like the price. "
If there's anyone who can do better with Italian, the original article is as follows:
"Sistema integrato di comunicazione: si tratta di un modulo che permette di conversare con il passeggero, ascoltare la radio (in cuffia o tramite altoparlanti), e rispondere al telefono cellulare, comandando il tutto con un satellite posizionato sul blocchetto sinistro del manubrio. Funzioni già viste sulla versione SL del Piaggio X9, ma in Aprilia assicurano che componentistica e ingenierizzazione sono indipendenti. Sarà un optional disponibile per la gamma Atlantic e Scarabeo da 125, 200 e 500cc. Consegne previste in primavera così come il prezzo."

This sounds exactly like Piaggio's PICS system which is available on X9s in Europe. It is a combined radio and intercom system - it comes with headphones and microphones. It enables users to communicate or listen to the Radio. You can plug the mobile phone in, and the system lets you take calls on the move, and transfer them between rider and passenger.
Its all quite fun - the only trouble is that radio reception seems slightly poor - it seems to need a better aerial to get more than the odd station.

Thanks guys, and all I wanted was a CD/Radio sound like star wars with and out of this world price tag as well. Maybe I'll just install my own.
01-25-2003, 04:28 AM
Try yahoo shopping advanced search then sort by price (if u know of a more robust search engine plz share) for GPS [and really anything else u may buy] price.
Function before form...got clear makeup bag from The Container Store $3.99 inverted and attached between handlebars w/ plasti-ties Home Depot 100 for 6.99ish to the 2 bag supplied ribbon/ring attachments on bag. Put GPS V in bottom of bag after attaching to GPS cigarette pwr cord run it to Radio Shack cigarette pwr cord extension 6.99 . add large plasti-ties loop to zippper (prevents fumbling w/ gloves ) the bag 9/10 closed w/ pwr cord coming out bottom. Run GPS off of Atlantic battery (v. NiMH), protected against 70 mph rain (per Garmin a good idea rain v. 70 mph rain) holds up well at 105 mph…101GPS measured on the Iron Horse...ok carbon fiber pony???? Heck the 1st 3.99 actually got me 2 bags for when the UV rays eats the first!
01-27-2003, 04:20 AM
bccatl - any chance you could post a photo of that setup?
Also, where did you read about the Garmin advice about the rain? Is that on their web site somewhere (their documentation as you've no doubt discovered seems to miss out heaps.)

Hey everyone. Over the weekend I installed the Garmin StreetPilot III GPS to my Atlantic. WOW!!! Talk about getting attention out there. It mounts perfectly to the right side of my mirror, and the weight is also dispursed to the right brake fluid indicator. I will take pictures of my bike and its accessories as soon as I get the windshield installed.
I did use the U-Bolt RAM Mount. It is VERY SECURE. I have no complaints.
The GPS power supply is my only concern. Right now I have my glove box slightly open with the 12 volt charger running through it. I think I might be able to run the cable through the steering handle where the brake lines run through. I dont know if I may be able to connect the GPS in parallel with the 12 Volt Power source, but I'm hoping I may be able to find a way.
I can hear the voice routing with the integrated speaker on the 12 Volt charger. Its hard to hear after 30 mph so I just disconnected it. I am thinking of just buying my own outdoor speakers and just mount it on the bike. Another option I am considering (until the actual cdplayer product comes in) is to use helmet headphones, and just connect it to the GPS when needed.
On another topic, someone suggested this website for additional crash guard headlights...very cool, but a little too pricey. What do you all think? If you drop the bike though, the light is toast...

Give me a couple of days and I will have pictures available.
01-29-2003, 02:32 AM
could you please attach some photos in the forum, in order to see what you have done? I also have a garmin gps v and I am thinking which is the best way to install in in my atlantic. Please help.
01-29-2003, 11:26 AM
Rebelck, I will get the pictures today or tomorrow on this forum. Sorry everyone for the long wait.

Doesn´t that mean that you have to let go of the throttle every time you operate the GPS??? It looks good, but what about mounting it on the left side??
02-04-2003, 03:01 PM
Sorry, that is where the radio goes!!
02-04-2003, 03:19 PM
Well, typically you set your address or point of interest before riding. Even in the car, this is the safest way. As for pressing buttons to change views, for example, the left hand easily can press the buttons. Also... regardless of position, the buttons in general are a little tricky to press because of the gloves...
BTW, although the screen looks too dim for daytime use, its actually very bright. It was just a bad picture. One last thing... even though you do not use the routing features of the GPS, it's still a great device to have on while cruising. It will tell you what street you are on and what cross streets are coming up. It will also give you speed and current time. All this is displayed without having to press buttons while riding.:rollin:

Great photos SummyBoy78. Thank you!
Once again I have a different idea to suggest.
<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/ohwell.gif ALT=":\">
I have the Garmin GPS V, which you can view its map landscape or portrait. I want the gps to be right in front of me, just for security reasons, so I want to install it somewhere in front of the speedometer. I will try to use the car ram, which is included in the deluxe package, and install it in portrait position between the handlebar, right on top of the grey plastic cover with the aprilia logo on it. If I found out that it is not so stable, I am thinking of using a 3m scratch tape and install it just before the trip computer. I am not using the gps on every day basis, just for long trips. I hope that both positions wont cover anything from the speedometer. After the installation I will send you some photos and give you my conclusion.
and here's what the lip looks like
02-10-2003, 09:41 PM
how are u actually posting the pics
My Kappa windscreen and top box has just arrived.
It looks like (and basically is exactly) Givi.
Strange thing that topbox recommended maximum carrying capacity is 4kg and the rack holding the topbox can be loaded with 6kg only.
If I want to go on a long ride I'll surely exceed these parameters.
Does anyone have original Aprilia top box? How much weight can it handle?
05-06-2003, 05:52 AM
The warning labels read 5 lbs/11 kg. Dave
05-08-2003, 05:35 AM
Sammyboy; I've had my GPS V mounted with the RAM mount much like your Streetpilot for a while now - currently I'm doing that fudge with the power cable by keeping the glovebox slightly ajar and wondered if you had a crack at threading the power lead up through the steering column alongside the brake lines yet?
This may be my weekend project and I'm just wondering how you got on (or not) before I look into it in more depth.
05-18-2003, 03:13 AM
i feed Radio Shack cigarette plug extension out the bottom of the glove box ...near center it works fie and still locks at top
05-31-2003, 04:53 PM
Just checking to see if you ever received any info on the tail bag for the Atlantic. I am very interested in getting one if you have the information. Thanks
06-01-2003, 08:49 AM
The label is backward;
5 lbs. divided by 2.2 = 2.27 lbs. (not likely).
11 kg x 2.2 = 24.2 lbs. (more like it).
