Thanks........ I like the "factory look" as well. What surprised me was how much difference it made by raising the whole cluster about one inch. After the rox risers was installed...... they covered the bottom part of the gps...... And by raising the whole cluster...... it became more natural for me 6`2" reading the instruments. It was moved up, and to the right...... Anyone can do this....
Here is the build.......

Yikes, that's a recipe for disaster. And I don't see a lanyard in that shot.

If you use AAs, you should get a couple of sets of rechargeable NiZn which will last a lot longer than any of the alternatives, especially if the weather's cold out.

I received my Zumo 660 today from Touratech together with the lockable handlebar mounting and the conversion kit with cut-off connector.

Here are the pics:




My view on the dash, I'm 1,84 m large.



The GPS is hard wired to the battery with a fuse. On the picture below you can see the cut-off connector from touratech.



Easy to lock and unlock your GPS:

More or less the same set-up as mine other than I have the TT lockable mount fixed to a centre bar. One thing you might find though is that located in that position the screen glare on a sunny day makes it almost impossible to see. If you find this to be the case then something like a Glare Stomper http://www.glarestomper.com/ comes in pretty useful and, whilst a tight squeeze, will fit into the Garmin case with it still attached to the unit.

Got a 62s :)

I had a Zumo 550 and I sold it because I need to see the trailroads also. Zumo can plot routes and navigate only on roads.

For this purpose I bought a garmin gpsmap 62s. It's amazing.
