I tried fitting the GPS with the Bagster tankbag for size, and it was PUSHING on the tankbag, really hard. So I had to relocate the GPS position. My friend Ayrton (of r/c bikes and enduro riding fame!) helped me with the finding of the appropriate aluminum plate, drilling and everything!

His work is a masterpiece, and now the GPS sits approx. 5cm higher, and it serves its purpose just as it should: Not interfering with the tankbag when the steering is turned at extreme angles (mostly in parking spaces, anyway), and also it doesn't hamper sight of ALL the gauges and idiot lights of the bike. It might show that it hides the speedo from this angle, but when seen from the saddle it is perfect!

Thanks, Ayrton!
