I ordered mine in the UK a month ago and was told just before the 1st service (when they were going to fit it) that there weren't any in the UK and were on back order  :003:  Not best chuffed.
I left for my Euro trip a few days later so had to go without it. I've now just got to Barcelona where i'll be for a while so will try and order from the local dealer here now, together with the smoked windscreen and side air deflectors.
Hope you get yours soon !

1 day delivery date in The Netherlands at the dealer ;)  Good luck with getting one, Im really loving mine, the Iphone in/on a quadlock rocks!

I went for another solution from Hornig : https://www.motorcycleparts-hornig.com/BMW-F-750-GS-F-850-GS/Navigation-and-Communication/GPS-Mount-44016.html

Quite simple to install (see installation video instructions on the website), and low profile :



So far very happy with it, at last the GPS is on the right place... I can check my route without leaving the eyes out of the road.

Found this one, looks like it won't be here for a week or more but $28 seemed more than reasonable and if the pictures it won't mount to the windshield and won't have those vibrations.   I'll post up when it finds it's way over some ponds.

I finally got a chance to try to install the mount from eBay.  Sorry to say that it does not work with the GSA adjustable windscreen mount...







Without the adjustable mount... yeah, it can work, but not with it...






Ride safe!

Interested to hear if it is a good option.

This one? :187:

GPS Mount for BMW F850GS

Did you share the install with photos when you did it??

Edit:  found a video.  This just mounts under the windscreen... I understand now...

Do you think it will be ok on the standard 850GS screen attachment?
