Have a look at this thread and you can see how I mounted mine - cheap, and way more solid/secure than a RAM mount.

I went on e-bay and got a new handlebar mount for less than $25.00 it has a water proof case that holds the GPS. It mounted tight and is very stable. Only draw back be sure you check the angle of the mount so the sun dosen't catch the clear face you won't be able to see the screen. :)

Right. I've been using this cheap and simple glare hood on my GPS for a couple years now, and it works great.
