WoMo Designs Gadget Mounts
« on: September 24, 2014, 12:18:51 pm »
I was at Interbike last week and met the owners of WoMo design who makes gadget mounts for dual devices like for a Garmin and GoPro.  Have anybody purchased something like this for their touring use?  I'm going to get a sample unit for a review but was wondering if anyone else has experience.  Thanks.

I have a Garmin Oregon. I don't see how this device will hold the Garmin. The web site doesn't say which Garmin models it supports. The Oregon comes with a plastic platform one can strap to the handle bars. The Garmin slides in. Occasionally, on a bumpy road, it can also slide out. So I use a lanyard as a backup. Let us know your experience with this.

I just looked up the Garmin Oregon and see what you mean by the mounting issue.  I've only been familiar with the Garmin units that were specifically made for bicycles (Touring or Edge) in which they provide their own mounting base where you insert and turn 90 degrees to lock into place.

Thanks for your feedback.

I have the mount on two of my bikes.  (You can order it through the Ortlieb website and it shows the different mounts they offer.) The light mount is specific for only a couple niterider lights (I use the 700 light).  I also have the Garmin Edge.  Unfortunately it is made only to fit a couple of different makes of equipment.  That said I really like the mount.  It is secure and it keeps my handlebar uncluttered. 

It would be nice if they made it for other equipment but that may come if they get enough requests.

Thanks @aggie.  I'm looking forward to getting my model to test.  It does look like an elegant solution to keeping your handlebar uncluttered.
