I also changed from an overpriced, slow, buggy, low resolution, purpose built GPS to this for half the price.

Forget the mounted case, just stash it in your tank bag.

Charges using a 2.1amp 12v cig lighter to 5v USB adapter which works fine - keeps pace with electrical demand; charges slowly when in use and fast when not in use (make sure you get the new 'iPad" USB charges which are rate for 2.1 amps, the standard USB chargers output 0.5amps which can't keep up).

This is pretty much my setup as well. The idea of attaching something fragile like electronics to my handlebars, that sits up high, just doesn't seem the way to go to me.
