XOG questions

Thank you to all on this thread (especially RWAMF) for making this an easy process to get the right stuff for my recently purchased XOG.

I have a XOG with a RAM 1.75" handlebar mount and 2 Garmin 90 degree USB power cables on order.

The XOG will be primarily for my DRZ for singletrack and dual sport rides. I hope on downloading and creating some tracks for the off-road portions.

Questions:

1: I plan on also using it on my 97 BMW R1100RT. Does anyone know what is the best way to mount it? I do not think I can use the RAM bar mount. I plan on running power off an accessory fuse, so if anyone has experience with that too, it would be appreciated.

2: My dual-sport/singletrack club has routes/tracks/whatever in Garmin format which I will convert to *.usr files. Is there any reason I would need the Mapcreate software or any other maps to complement the tracks? I don't care about elevation since I live in the Midwest.

Thank you
