I have a Navihalter up for grabs if any better.
Centre part of fairing above fuel cap just pulls off. Couple of screws on left side to take off and then the left fairing pulls forwards and off. There is a cable there for the nav. I simply cut the wire and attached the nav cable to it. easy job once you've done it...

The navihalter is what Ducati based or copied there mount on and will place the satnav above the clocks. It would be the preferred option if you are installing a 595. The official Ducati mount only supports the 395 which their official satnav is based on. The navihalter has holes for all cradles. Another option is the engimoto mount which again places the satnav above the clocks and is suitable for most cradles. I have a navigator v installed on a engimoto mount and have no problem with it fouling or covering anything.

Anyone used this from SW-Motech for a GPS mount?

http://shop.sw-motech.com/cgi-bin/cosmoshop/lshop.cgi?action=showdetail&wkid=150592184521158&ls=en&nc=1505921869-21993&rubnum=brands.ducati.950multi&artnum=GPS.22.584.10000/B&id=69&gesamt_zeilen=50Tshowrub--brands.ducati.950multi&typid=272189327

Looking at getting a more permanent solution for my rather shonky generic thing. This looks good and seems to have a more permanent capability. Wondering if anyone else has used it.

I like my sat nav over the top off the clock

Plus one needs to be above the clocks no looking down at directions

Just wanted to check before I break anything - the 950's plastic covers / body work is similar to the 2015 1200's? Just like this video?


So the center section where the ignition key is, you can pull it out and remove it to get to the other bits of plastic?

Yes exactly. It will if anything like mine feel like you are going to break it before it actually comes off. Once off it gives access to the screws to remove the plastic parts for access to the GPS power.

Got it off and sorted it out. Wow, certainly held together well! Found the wire and sorted out power for my new TomTom too. With the mount (which works well), switched power and decent modern display, I am really pleased. Looking forward to the 1500 mile ride I have come up at the beginning of November!
