    Which garmin fit the standard triumph mount?

    Hi,

    Sorry if this has been covered before, but I was wondering if there was a list somewhere of compatible satnav s for the standard triumph mount?
    The handbook only talks about 660/665?

    I am looking for a used one, but they seem few and far between

    Thanks

    The Triumph mount has an AMPS pattern, so any Garmin GPS where the mount has an AMS pattern on it (say for a RAM ball) should work. I've used 550s and 660s in the past.

    Originally intended for the 600 Series, but many opted later for the 595,
    which is slightly taller, and care needs to be taken not to obscure
    the top of the Instrument Panel display - some opted to fit an extension piece to raise it higher,
    but then you have to watch the top doesn't come into contact with the fully lowered screen.

    If you haven't decided on a Sat Nav device take a look at the Zumo XT
    which a few of us have switched to - It doesn't have all of the features
    of the 595, but it has a MUCH brighter screen that the 595 is lacking.  :169:

    It also has NO Audio Output cable so can't be connected to the Trophy Audio Cable connector,
    it relies on a Bluetooth connection, or its own little speaker intended for in-car use.

    Cheers  :821:

    To give you an idea of how the Zumo XT looks on the Trophy :
    ( Ignore the switch boxes to either side, for my additional lighting etc ).

    The Zumo XT is first class. The 660 and 595 are just not bright enough

    I actually use my BMW Navigator IV (made by Garmin) on my Trophy as well.
    I had to dremel a small notch in the lower bracket to accommodate it, but it works well. Used BMW Navigator GPS’ are readily available.  :038:
