Some mounts merely hold the Montana without powering it, and you still have to use the mini-USB jack - those are not the way to go, IMHO.
There are very few mounts made for the Montana and the cheapest and best is the $33 Garmin Rugged Mount which powers the Montana through surface contacts and is lockable. What a bargain.

If anyone chooses a RAM mount instead of that, they're not thinking this through very well.
