Checking it out now-- I've never seen it before and this thing looks amazing. Because it's Android does that mean you use 3rd party GPS apps, like Google Maps or Apple Maps or does it have its own mapping software? I seriously dig the Play Store option for apps I like instead of having to separately mount or use my phone.

The more I look at this the more I like it!

Both, you can use google maps, wikiloc, all android apps and it has its own gps with world maps including offroad
The waterproof and impact proof charging connector is another major selling point for me. I think I might go this route instead of the Zumo-- I don't have time tonight but I need to look at how the thing mounts and connects to make sure it's something I can DIY. Thank you so much for posting this-- I'm not sure why this solution doesn't come up on adv GPS searches other than that Garmin probably pays for the high search results.

The small one under the seat are the lone rider Cockpit Hangry Pouch Set for BMW gs. It comes like a pair. I got one in each side. You can put sun glasses if they are not too big, tire pressure deflate tool, the seat net,…
The big one with the pump is from Kriega.

The conection of the tablet is the same as the gps. Easy access just removing wind screen.
If you use the grip remote control you need another connection.
To mount the tablet you need the ducati gps mount or perun moto and a system to connect it to the carpe item

It looks from the pic that the Carpe Iter covers a large portion of the Desert X screen. Is that just the angle of the pic or does it really do that?
Thanks.
It covers most of it. The pad + holder is 8.66 inches wide by 5.6" tall, and given where the DX dash is located and oriented, the corners of the Carpe Iter tab actually protrude past the edges of the upper portion of the windscreen. You can run the exact same software on a smaller android tablet. I'm in the research phase of how I want to do GPS on the DX myself and I don't really like the idea of the tablet taking direct wind-- the Carpe tab would handle it fine (based on their specs) but I'd be concerned about weird wind buffeting or sound at highway speeds since the windscreen can't block all of it. Then again, I like the idea of a 7" display since I wince looking at a phone regardless of where it's mounted, so, more research!

This is a Dabrabbit kit. Great quality. It needs to be a slow process for best results, so take your time. I did about three, 3-4 hour sessions. A blow dryer (NOT a heat gun) will be your best friend. Start with a few of the smaller pieces until you get the hang of it. When I dry fitted the pieces, I warmed them up with the blow dryer, before removing the backing paper, so they would form better around curves and I could get a better feel for proper placement.
