    Best Multibike Setup for GPS and Radar

    If one rides multiple bikes and wants to use a GPS and Radar setup from bike to bike does anyone have a good and easy solution?

    Thanks

    Sure. Buy more mounts. Moving a GPS from vehicle to vehicle is simply a matter of mount and power.

    My GPSs and V1 are attached with cradles and RAM mounts. Once you have the cradle and ball, and an arm, all you need is a ball mount in the right spot on each bike.

    For power on our multiple bike locations, we use the Battery Tender two prong SAE plugs. Originally designed to attach your charger to your battery. The end is capped when not in use and lays near the handlebars ...each bike a tad different.
    Some are fused directly from battery, just lengthened the BT leads ...a few others come from a aftermarket fuse block like the Centech.

    The GPS mount/cradle power now has the matching connector soldered to the leads. Powerlet makes a Y splitter for multiple accessories...GPS and Radar being one option. I have the same setup going into a tankbag to recharge phones and IPODS with a cigarette lighter attached to the SAE two prong plug.

    And as mentioned, all bikes have RAM ball(s) in a convenient location.

    This is the best solution... Garmin will sell you additional mounts for their motorcycle GPS adapters, don't know about other brands.

    V1 can easily move from hardwired setup on RAM ball on bike, to hardwired setup in BMW car too
