    Any photos of an attached "Garmin Rugged Mount"

    I thought I'd be able to just attach it to the "Ram EZ Roller" but it looks like it will need a specific attachment. Anyone with the "Rugged Mount" have photos of how it's attached to the TW?

    Thanks,

    I don't have one, but I did some looking for you over at GPS city in the gallery section. Here is a guy mounting one to a Dakar with the U bolt base.

    Thanks Borneo,

    It looks like it takes a different plate mount. I guess I could jury rig it and make it work but for 6 or 8 bucks I'll contact GPS city for the right part.

    it takes part # Ram-B-347U a square plate w/ 4 screws that attaches to the rugged mount Ram 2" x 1.7" Base Amps Hole Pat
    This is the ball for the back of the mount.
    Also need a handlebar mount and the arm.
    I have an extra rugged mount and an extra ball that I have not used yet so I have the package right in front of me.

    This is how I wired it. The rugged mount is intended to be hardwired, that's why I bought 2. But by wiring it this way, I can switch the mount between my bikes.

    I used a TechMount I got from Aerostitch, then attached the Garmin base to that. Direct wire to the battery. This is the best pic I have but could take a closer shot if you need it.

    I don't know what a Ram EZ roller is but I have the Ram Powered rugged mount shown above by Borneo for my Montana 600T GPS mounted on my TW with the stock handle bars. The cross brace on the bars does make it a bit tricky to get the GPS in a good position while not blocking the view of the gauges. I have it hard wired direct to the battery so when the Montana is in it is on and charging. I do like this mount and really appreciate the locking screw you can screw down or not as a safety device.

    That reminds me of the main drawback to the rugged mount. If it is direct wired to the bike, the GPS remains on even when the bike is off. Its not a big deal but if you don't remove the GPS from the mount there is a drain on the battery. I don't like to leave it on when I go into a restaurant for lunch, for example. Otherwise I think its secure in the locked mount as long as where its left is not deserted...you would need a wrench to steal it.
    I can disconnect the sae plug when my bike is turned off and it kills the power to the GPS.

    With a test light you could easily wire the power to a switched hot wire such as the head lights. The mount and GPS don't draw much power at all. With the Montana you can turn the GPS screen off while in the mount but I do believe it will keep charging even when it is off unless you wire the mount to a switched line.
