Touratech GPS Lock
« on: April 07, 2014, 05:46:34 am »
I Just got done installing a Touratech GPS Lock on my TTSE. Seems to be a perfect fit. Took about an hour to install, perhaps would have been easier and faster if I removed the windscreen, but I did it by moving up and down the windscreen as necessary, leaving the ignition on during the entire time (that will be covered in my next message, as it seems there is no need for a accessory position on the TTSE keyswitch).  Anyway, it clears everything with room left over, just a little tight to get the key into the GPS lock keyhole, but not too bad. Just not much clearance for the key.

But IMO, the Touratech GPS looks fine on the TTSE and works well.

Here is what it looks like installed:

Yes, that is what I am using, is the Triumph GPS hoder, USA style, which has the thingie to also hold the satellite radio antenna.  But I am sure any of the Triumph Garmin GPS holders  will work with the Touratech.

Ok, I ordered a zumo 660 over the TomTom as revzilla had it for only 539 and I had a good amount of zilla cash to use. I have the Triumph usa gps mount and connector coming via bikebandit. Reading through sounds like that is all I really need.

Can I ask about this touratech mount?
It does look nice but not sure about the need to leave gps on bike vs just taking it when I go in somewhere.
I assume this makes the GPS more secure while riding, not as likely to come of the mount like can happen with car gps?
Does it do anything else really? Looking at site sounds like better vibration dampening

IMO, it's just for the convenience of not having to remove it. I doubt the GPS would fall off the stock mount and I don't think the 660 needs better vibration dampening than the stock mount. So if you don't mind removing it for every two  minute stop when you're away from your bike, IMO, there is no need for you to buy the Touratech.

 It takes about three seconds to remove the GPS without the Touratech and that's the ONLY reason I have mine.

BTW, with the Tourtech, you have a choice to keep it unlocked so the GPS will  remove easily,  or locked where it would be very difficult to rip off.

I wish there was something a little less expensive , cause the lock is more than 50 % of the cost of the Garmin 660 nowadays ( 190$ vs 320$ ) makes little sense does it as far as being anti-theft
