After opening the package, it looked too high and too big to me also. After installation it looked perfectly well to me.I disagree that the screen is too high.
I think the screen looks really good and,above all has a nice strong sturdy bracket. It will probably make highway riding more pleasant.
You would almost think it came with the bike. Wunderlich don't make crap gear, that's why their stuff is so expensive, Looks very professional.
I think it is for 12 v. or usb socket.Do you know why there is that round cutout flange on the right side bracket? The bracket doesn't interfere with cables or anything that would need to be routed through there.
