I have a Garmin Zumo XT, looking to mount on the AT as a dedicated GPS. Any recommendations on what mount to get in order to mount on top of the TFT? I read the Touratech GPS mount is only for the AT AS model, i have the standard model. Any recommendations are welcome.

I don't know how much help I will be, but I bought the Givi GPS / Smartphone Bracket which I have yet to install. However this and the Touratech has been discussed here. Search is always your friend.

Hi I have just ordered this new Touratec handlebar mount, but still pending arrival. I trust this will fit

I believe mounting the XT with lockable mount will vibrate and is in line of vision. I personally run the Touratech handlebar mount and lockable cradle on the central bar. Very solid and when riding they line up exactly from the TFT / small screen/Nav. It does protrude out much when riding.

Yes, that's the one I have ordered for a 1100 l DCT :)

MatthewH have you mounted a tank bag with the Zumo mounted in this position? Does the tank bag block or approach blocking the GPS screen line of sight? I am considering a Mosko Moto Hood tank bag which is their middle size tank bag.

Thank you

Ref USB i dont think so , would i be right in saying the voltage isnt right ? Only reason i say that is that it wouldn’t charge my Garmin when i tried it.
With a Honda Tank Bag there is full visual of the Nav. I believe its 8 L bag. If it were bigger like expanding tank bag it would cover the nav but a non expandable bag would work.

for me having Nav in its current location makes it really easy to data input whilst on the move without having to lean forward.

picture one is my rider view of the Garmin

Cable is switched Power , eg ign off and Garmin Powers down which is located near the heated grips connector th

Touratech has the best one IMO. I purchased the one that goes above the TFT screen and is behind the windscreen. The safest one as it is in front and your eyes don’t come off the road I. Front of you. Takes about 20 minutes to install. It has everything the Zumo needs to power up. Need to run a cable to supply power. That takes a little effort to connect correctly.

Looking good, all the planets line up!
Have you changed all the screens to Gold menu’s?
Thanks Matthew, yes I have changed 2 gold, but quite frankly I don't use much of the info, but good to see how much fuel left in range :)
