  • Virb Cradle

    I've tried with garmin, ebay, amazon, and all over the internet looking for a factory cradle. I recently bought a virb, but it didn't come with accessories. Does anyone know where to find one? Thanks!

      Probably the regular Virb/Virb Elite...since accessories for the others are still readily available...

      ...the cradles are getting harder and harder to find...I've managed to grab up three of them, and two dive cases...along with as many base mounts and adapters I can find...regular Virbs (not the Elite/gps model) are selling refurbed on Ebay now for $149.00 and come with the cradle and some mounts and links:

      Here's one for $85 or best offer ($85, out of his mind) but you could throw a $40 offer out there and see if it sticks...

      Here's a 'tactical mount' (scope mount) for only $25 but you could take off the lower half of the tube mount and then screw it down into something (piece of wood, anything, then set it on your dash) of course you can always stick some velcro on the bottom of the Virb and then one to 'wherever' to mount it, too...

        Also, here's one to keep an eye on....might be worth it just for the accessories alone...check out the pictures...

          Thanks for the replies. I have the virb elite. I've actually talked to those people on ebay and talked the guy down to $60 for a used cradle. I tried making offers for less, but they're automatically declined. I've considered the tactical mount and making some modifications as well. The only reasonable one I've found is from china for $30, but it will take about a month to get here. I have looked everywhere.

            $30 from China? Take it.

              Ah, the mythical cradle for the old VIRB. I don't think the cradle even exists any more anywhere in North America. After hours of searching, I finally found a retailer of GPS units in Australia that still had a bunch in stock, and bought a few, trying hard to ignore the shipping fee. I just checked, and now they're depleted, too. I think it's actually cheaper to buy a whole camera with the cradle from old stock, rather than to get just the cradle accessory. It seems that Garmin didn't make enough of them. I still have a new unopened one in a box. I was going to put it on one of my bikes, but now I think I'll wait until I can sell it on E-Bay for a thousand bucks.
