    Who's using a Garmin Zumo XT GPS / SatNav?

    I'm considering moving up from a Zumo 665 to the newer XT model https://tinyurl.com/y38osj8e and wondering if anyone has mounted one on their CT?  I currently have my 665 mounted above the bike's display, on the dash, and want to keep the new unit there.  I am not interested in a RAM handlebar solution.  What are owners using?

    This is my current mount from enigmoto.  I'm not sure these are even made anymore.  Will the XT mount fit on this?

    I don’t have the XT but use an Engimoto mount too. I’d image the bolt pattern for the mount would be fairly standard as the common way to fit one is, as you say, using the ram ball mount. I guess it’s got to line up with one of those?

    Found this which maybe of some use.

    Thanks Hartley.  I did find that same page in doing some Google searching.  They show it mounting to a RAM ball but I guess any baseplate with the industry standard AMPS hole pattern would fit on the Enigmoto with all the holes.

    Touratech sells a nice locking cradle:



    They claim the Garmin Motorcycle Mount is also needed.
