Has anyone taken out the locking screw out of the Rugged Mount?

Great service.
I'm 90% sure that's who I bought mine from. If the screw doesn't really help hold it in though, I don't know if I'm goi g to mess with it. Too hard running wires etc. (I know, I sound like a lazy bast#%

MitchG and Emmbeedee, thanks for your guidance. My google-fu was weak.

I'll copy the procedure faithfully and will put a stainless M3 x XX SHCS with a plastic press on thumb cap. Will keep an eye on vibes.

Cheers!

Take lots of pictures. I like the sound of the 'plastic press on thumb cap' idea.

Thanks for pointing that out. That's great news.

Thx
Never had my ZUMO or the Montana come out of the mount yet without the locking screws, and thats with crashes, miles of rock field crossings, and even a few jumps. Garmin designed it as an antitheft device, hence the security screw head.

Found a great deal on the Garmin Montana 650t. The dealbreaker could be the fact that there is no in helmet audio. Has anyone here figured out a way to have in helmet turn by turn with this unit?

I use the rugged mount (incl. Audio out), plugged into a SENA SR10 which pairs to my helmet headset (Sena SMH10), but the SR10 will work with just about any BT headset.

I also use a Sena. I've used both an SM10 and an SR10 with my Schuberth SRC-S (Cardo) Comm unit. You just need to understand the limitations of your Bluetooth Headset/Comm gear. There are numerous threads on the Sena products over in the GEAR area as well as here in Layin' down tracks.

Current I think that the most versatile Headset Comm unit on the market is the Sena SMH10 Series because they support v3.0 Multipoint. Multipoint will allow the concurrent connection of two Handsfree devices: like a cellphone and a Bluetooth enabled GPS or Bluetooth dongle like the Sena SM10 or SR10.

I put some small Mylar speakers in my Tour X with a jack lead hidden in the lining, then I just connect a phono-phono to the audio output from the Rugged mount that is kept between the tank and seat. Works fine plus never needs charging and I don't have a big lump strapped to the helmet.

After alot of research and many hours of confusion I finally decided to buy the Montana 650t. Now comes the big learning curve but thanks to this forum I will have the info I need. I have been looking at it along with the Zumo and new TomTom Rider but decided the topo maps were more important than in helmet turn by turn.That and the $449 price tag!

Not meaning to burst your bubble but most people who have them don't seem to be too impressed with the 100k Topo maps included with the model "T". They generally end up buying the 24K ones.

Here's a thread you might be interested in: Comparison of Garmin Topo 24K vs 100K for trail riding.

Easy to have both! Get a set of earbuds, put them on under the helmet, plug in to the rugged mount audio jack. Done.
