Anyone mount a GPS on their 1190 with the Touratech mount?

So I installed a Garmin 665 on a Touratech mount on my 1190R. It has minor vibration and bouncing while ridding on asphalt. Yesterday I went off-road on a fairly rocky atv track. The GPS was bouncing so bad that I was worried it might pull the screws that hold the instrument cluster to the front fairing, out of the plastic anchors. I have decided that I need to install some type of anchor back to the dash, or it could get ugly if things break out on the trail. I am planning to ride the UT BDR in a couple of weeks, I'm trying to be practical and exercise an ounce of prevention, before I end up a more serious problem somewhere that isn't very convenient.

Basically I'm wondering if someone has already crossed this bridge, and designed a fix for this problem?

Thanks for the heads up.
I have the KTM mount and was going to change it out for the Touratech one for the same reason.
I ended up just mounting the GPS to the handlebar via a Ram mount.
I guess that is how it will stay.

Here's what I've used for 8 or 9 years on all my bikes.



No vibes. Easier to reach. Doesn't block view of other instruments.

I realise the GPS is in a Touratech bracket or similar but where did you get the mount to the bar clamp?

Yea I have one as well. I am looking to re-engineer it - it appears the Zumo 665 seems to be to heavy for it. Looks Like the cross bar needs to be lowered and the open gusset needs to filled in to get rid of some of the flex.
