zumo 550 screw and static problem

Anybody know where you can get the thumb screw that replaces the special screw that locks your zumo in the mount..??? I have seen them for sale some where but cant find them now.. Im not too worried about security.. more so if I could unmount it faster i would just put it in side case or my pocket when not on the bike..


also i have been getting a lot of static throught the head phones.. seems to have some thing to do with the contact between the mount and the zumo... comes and goes ... mine is mounted to the handle bars with a factory bmw mount..that came from BMW zumo kit. can this static be fixed?

For replacement screws, here's a source:

On the static, clean the contacts on the mount and on the Zumo with a pencil eraser and see if that cures it.
