Since we wrote our last blog post about waterproof GPS and iPhone mounts, we have discovered other vaiations that have proven very popular with our customers. As you know, we carry the RAM line of motorcycle mounts and they make an excellent array of weatherproof mounts called the Aquabox (RAM-B-149Z-AQ6U). These are excellent mounts but the price in some cases begins to approach what a lower priced GPS costs.
We recently began to carry a lower priced model. It’s a completely different type of mount. The case is made of a weatherproof neoprene type of material and deploys a weatherproof zipper for a tight water resistant seal. The mount fits bars to 1.5 inches and is a heavy duty plastic. These fit the majority of TomTom, Garmin, Mio, Magellan and Nextar GPS models. Generally speaking anything that is 4.3 or 3.5 inch diagonal will fit well (that’s 98% of the GPS market).
The excellent feature (besides the price) is that the human touch can be felt through the transparent window. This means you can interface with your iPhone. We find this difficult with the RAM Aquabox line. Our new waterproof mount line overcomes this restriction at a very competitive price.
RAM makes a great mount, but if you would like a lower priced option, take a look at our WaterBike line of mounts.
