D'you find your Garmin bracket works loose?

I have a similar GPS and I find that I have to tighten the swivelly bit up every 5 minutes as it works its way loose?

Any tips (other than glue), as I like to take the GPS off when I leave the boat anywhere.

Hi Whitingiom

I can honestly say that the gps bracket held the garmin12 in place perfectly. The boat took a good battering for 21 miles and the bracket did not move at all.

You are quite right Charles, your gps bracket was the star of the show. Thanks.

According to your boat map Keith, the placement was not as planned. Don't think I would let you build my next house?!

Ah Charles, if you check out the photo here http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=2858 you'll see that I changed the compass and gps around so it was easier to read. You have been looking at the photo I posted when I first fitted your dtar gps bracket.
