Ease of use -- quick insertion and removal of the unit.
Reliability -- holds the unit securely on the roughest terrain.
Standard model can be difficult to fit on some MTB bars -- they now make a larger (25-32mm) adapter.
If you own a Garmin GPS, you want one of these. I own 4 (one for each bike).
This bracket is one of the main reasons for buying a Garmin GPS: it provides a secure mechanism for mounting your unit to your bike; you can place it in a convenient and visible location (e.g., close to your preferred hand); and it is exposed to the sky (better reception).
