Default GPS for softail slim

i recently bought a softail slim and was wondering if anyone can recommend a GPS (+ mount kit) which fits the softail slim.

The issue is not the GPS, the issue is finding the right mount kid which fits...

RAM makes an excellent mount for just about any device:

They all look so bad on the handle bars. Almost tried to velco it to the tank, but that is even worse. I probably get 1/4 of my riding miles while I'm lost. Sometimes a good thing. Wish some one would make a mount that didn't look like it's from Toy's R Us.

Hi all, if you're looking for a GPS mount that actually looks good mounted to the handlebar (or the switch housing on a Harley), here are some USA-made, machined (then chromed or blacked), solid mounts. These look nice!

Here is mine mounting for a gps. I don't like the large mounting bracket on the handlebars if I don't mount the gps.

So I've got a good solution for it:

Gr Mario.

i bought a techmount black handle bar mount and added the
quick change adapter plate.
when i slide the plate off, you barely see the mount.

check out the website
part # 3-60003 and part # 3-30912

The handlebar mount in chrome is 20 bux more.
i went with the black because it tucks in behind the bag i have mounted on my handlebars and it's barely noticeable.

i post a pic when i get home.
