    Navigation on CB1000R

    I am looking for the best place for a navigation device (TomTom 550). Has anyone already installed this on the CB1000R and if so, where?
    Pictures would be helpful...

    I guess the best place would be where it can be easily seen without taking your eyes far off the road.

    It's going to be different for different size riders.---From your own perspective it has to suit YOU.

    That's interesting but you don't actually say why. Perhaps it's because you can play with it whilst riding down the road. ( Left hand. )

    I have my Garmin sat nav installed dead centre on the handlebar clamp / bridge.

    From the riding position it is in line with, but just below my dash, not obstructing the view in any way.

    I power it from the Honda 12 volt power socket fitted just to the left of my dash.

    When sat nav not on cradle or not needing to be powered I plug it's power lead into a dummy 12 volt socket I've fitted to the right of my dash.

    The leads and Garmin power transformer are hidden between the front of my dash and my meter visor.

    This arrangement works great for me, I've toured Spain with it and had no problems.
