Touratech MVG experiences?
I have the locking Touratech MVG mount for my 276c. I've actually had it for several years, and just got around to installing it on my newest bike (1200GSA). I have it mounted on the windshield bracket using Touratech's adapter bar. My question is for those of you that have had this mount for awhile...
Have you had any longevity problems with your GPS that were actually caused by this mount? It's supposed to be vibration and shock-isolating, but it vibrates so much when the bike is idling that it's barely legible. Doesn't bother me from a usefulness standpoint, because I rarely sit with the bike idling and fool with the GPS. The vibrations smooth out at speed. But it vibrates so strongly that it has me wondering if the vibration dampers are doing more harm than good.

fixing Touratech MVG mount vibration
I had the same problem with mine.
My solution was to install rubber spacers in between the dampers to take up the slack.
I used the rubber liner thingies (technical term!) that line a opening in a car firewall so the wire loom does not get cut.
Looks like this when done and it really works. Cheap too!
Hope that helps!
