I put the Sunpass in the main compartment of the Givi tank bag and a $200 Garmin Nuvi in the window pocket. The toll pass radio waves go right through leather, plastic, etc. I only use the Garmin so I can stay exactly 14 miles over the speed limit. The damn Suzuki speedo is way off 15% too fast of a reading most of the time...and it gets more wrong the faster I go.

Farkle at will. I have a RAM mount for my gps, my buddy has one for his gps, another for his iphone and two more for his fast pass and radar detector.

Once you find what you like check out gps planet, better prices and quick service.

I made a mount for my old GPS out of aluminum angle stock, and throw the EZpass in the tank bag, oriented in the proper direction. Works great.

You should get a RAM (or equivalent) mount for the GPS unit. You don't want it to move around.

I've rigged a TomTom ONE (not a M/C GPS) for my bike, and modified a generic cellphone auto power adapter to provide the power.

The only mod I did to the ONE was to RTV the 'traffic' connection to seal it.

I can't hear it, but I use it mainly for true speed, turn warnings and distance to go. The big green arrow is all I need for directions.

We have no tollroads 'round here.
