The Rotating Map Holder available from AR Navigation Supplies, features
a lightweight design with a quick
release mounting bracket designed to fit all standard bike handlebar
setups including most riser bars. The map holder comes in two
sizes, the 9" x 9" is perfect for sprint events and 24 hour races. The
11" x 11" is great for the longer expedition events that have larger
The design is strong enough to withstand the rigors of any adventure
race or bicycle orienteering event. The solid construction
will not flex or flap on rough roads and will hold flexible map covers
or just the map itself while still allowing for other equipment
such as lights and computers to be mounted on the handlebars.
It is positioned for easy reading and makes bike navigation simple by
allowing you to turn the map to match the terrain without having to
turn the bike. The design has been proven in many races and
successfully used by racers all over the World.

1. What size map case can be used with the Rotating Map
The AR Navigation Supplies Rotating Map Holder was designed to be used
size map case. We would rather use a large map case and fold
it to fit under the
bungee cords than have to take the map out of a smaller case and re
fold it to view new
2. Can I place just the paper map on the Rotating Map Holder?
The Rotating Map Holder was designed to allow just the map to be placed
on the map
board. If the bungee cords are not tight enough to securely
hold the map in place, you
can put a twist or two into the bungee cords under the map board to
tighten them. We
always prefer to protect the map with a map case though.
3. The quick release clamp is not staying closed, what am I
The quick release lever must close across the opening of the
bracket. If the lever is
closing along the rounded side of the bracket it will not stay
closed. Turn the release
lever through 80 degrees and close it across the opening of the bracket
as shown in
the images. This will ensure that it remains tightly closed.
4. Can a compass be added to the Rotating Map Holder?
The Rotating Map Holder has been developed with non magnetic
parts. We normally
place a small compass inside the map case that is attached to the
Rotating Map Holder
to allow easy viewing.
