GPS and mounting bracket options and solutions

Guys,
I am looking at buying a gps unit for my 1190. Preferably one of the larger 7" screen ones, like the Nuvi 2757, 2789 or similar. Does not need to be waterproof necessarily.
I bought the Touratech mounting bracket. What is the best setup to attach both to each other? Not sure I like the "ball" system.
Is there a better setup, better gps options? Need something with a large screen and simple to use that can be attached securely.
Any photos or comments will be appreciated!

I have one of these on my 690. Works on just about any KTM, and with almost any GPS. I like the fact that it locks, and also that it has a hole for a Powerlet socket.

Very pleased with my SW Motech mount - solid as rock, easy install, very durable.

Great, thank you! I already bought the Touratech bar, seems I need to buy the mounting bracket you showed above. I checked online trying to figure out whether it will hold one of the newer 7" screen automobile units....havent found an answer yet.
If someone has done it please post photos/comments....otherwise I might have to go with a smaller screen option like a 660 or similar..

Too much. the whole area of the dash moves, that makes trail riding look at the gps very difficult... or i'm just getting blind as a bat...

The bar mounted one is perfect vibration free, easy to access but just out of my sight...

I have the SW Motech one fitted above my clocks. This keeps the gps in a nice position to view and reasonably clear too. I'd post pics, but this is one site that seems to frustrate all efforts to do so.

Duplicate thread

There is already a thread about this topic, exactly like this one actually. Search is overrated?

Here is a shot "Reenmachine" posted on our website of the SW-MOTECH mount on his (or her) bike:
