Iron Aces GPS mount

First, let me say customer service at Iron Aces is great. Lindsey took care of me - answering questions about what I needed, getting my mount out to me quickly, and following up to make sure the product had arrived.

As for the product itself - well made, with very detailed instructions for installation, and everything needed for a clean install.

The one thing I was concerned about in going with an Iron Aces mount for my Zumo 665 was I wasn't sure how much the mount would block my view of the radio. I had trouble getting this question answered from the pics I found on the interweb. So here's a pic of what I see of the GPS and the radio from my riding position. I'm 5'9", BTW. Couldn't be more pleased with the result.

Thanks for the picture. I have been thinking of getting one of other mounts but wondered the same thing

Another thanks for the pic.

I ordered mine last week, currently on it's way to me. It's a good looking setup and look forward in getting mine setup also.

Also, IA processed my order super-fast. I received a tracking number less than a hour I clicked Finalized Order.

Excellent customer service - received timely email follow-ups and a post card once it had been delivered ... many businesses could learn from them!

By far the cleanest GPS mount available. Ditto on IA customer service! Here's my set-up

From all the pics I have looked at it appears that the GPS is positioned in a "layed back position". My concern is glare from the sun making it hard to see. Anyone have any input?

I just installed one of these as well, no issues seeing the stereo. As far as sun glare goes, I have that concern as well. But I run the GPS INTERFACE from HD, and I love that.

@BigWaterJim....that is an excellent question and a concern that a lot of folks have about using our Mount. We have designed the Mount to be at the same angle as the speedo / tach so any glare that you might experience on these two gauges should be similar to what you might see on whichever device you use with our Mount.

With that, there are several factors that will ultimately determine how much glare you may or may not get such as rider height in the saddle, how close you sit to the gauges in the saddle, etc. so as you can see it's really difficult to say, 'yes you will get a lot of glare' or 'no you won't get any glare' because it differs from rider to rider.

For those folks that do experience glare that may be bothersome while riding, we suggest getting a clear plastic screen protector for the device you use as this will significantly reduce or completely eliminate the glare.

Hopefully this helps ease some of your concerns but if you have any further questions, do not hesitate to reach out to me direct at lindsey @ ironacesspeedshop.com (no spaces before / after the @ symbol...trying to eliminate spam by entering it that way on this public forum lol).

Lindsey :0)
