Is this the Garmin mount? Does the mount look flimsy or do you think it was just a faulty part? It's definately not up to their usual standard if it broke that easily. Sad Send it back and get a refund.

Check out RAM mounts instead. http://www.ram-mount-uk.com/

Yes, it's Garmin mount and it does look flimsy.

Will be sending it back - let you know the outcome

Quest is not exactly designed for off-road biking. Have you ever used eTrex family? I used my eTrex for more than 2 years in my bike, off and on road and it did well.

I recently bought a Quest and plan to use it in my bike for traveling, most on road but, occasionally, on rough surfaces.

It's rugged and waterproof - what about it makes it not suitable for a bike? Confused
