    I've use Garmin eTrex Venture hanging around my neck while biking and it's worked well so far. I was thinking of putting it on my mountain bike but with all the shaking and banging around, i didnt think it would last very long. Hence, the "necklace" while I bike.

    Can anyone advise where these bike mounts can be found locally? I'm planning to get one for my eTrex. I tried looking around to see if the cellphone holders will do (for the eTrex) but none of them fit well.

    If anyone has a spare gooseneck as well (the ones where you attach your Cd player in the car), I would love to buy it from you (hopefully by now it is cheap).

    Sorry this reply is a bit late, but does not seem anyone else has tried to answer your Question, so I will have a go:-

    I found 'MotoWorld' show 'RAM Mounts' and RAM Aqua Box


    RAM MEDIUM SQ. SIZE AQUA BOX
    RAM

    I expect it may be cheaper buying from Amazon.com and having them shipped over perhaps, as MotorWorld tends to be higher priced that USA.

    I personally bought a Garmin Nuvi 255 (refurbished. but with full 1 year Garmin Warranty and Map upgrade) from Amazon.com for US$55, Also Handlbar-mounted Water-resistant Case, that protects it from the rain, dust, and bumps and vibrations somewhat as it held in place with foam rubber packing inside the case, as it narrower and lot thinner than the case is deep. Newer versions of the case come with battery pack holders in the lower half.



    I went with Solar Charger having 2000mAH battery inside, and use this mounted on top of a Visor that I added, to shade the screen from the glare of the sun (which tops up the battery as it shines on the visor now)

    I recently posted to this Thread - Power packs for your garmin
