I was planning on visiting this store later to go check out some GPS units for my new GTS250. It seems that recently did an install on a 2006 Vespa. I think the GPS unit is custom painted red to match the scooter. Looks like a Magellan unit. Pretty cool though.

How does the size of the GPS unit affect your handling? I'd expect it'd make the bike tend to the left a touch...

I'd like to see a photo of the backside, to see what mounting hardware was used.

Anyone know how strong the suction is on the ram mount http://www.gpscity.com/item-garmin-gpsmap-60-suction-mount/60sucmnt.htm. I wonder if it would be secure on the windshield?

As flexible and vibration-prone a scooter's windshield is, I wouldn't mount a $100+ device to it with a suction cup.
