Zumo 450
« on: August 09, 2015, 04:40:59 am »
I have an old Zumo 450 that continues to work great. Can the 450 cradle be fitted to the Triumph GPS mount?

Thanks.

I am sure it could do. You might need to adjust the holes. People are using the mount with 550s , 660s and now 590s. The 660 and 590 need no adjustment. Most people with the 550 have put in a plate with extra holes to move the GPS up a fraction so as not to obscure the info screen.

Perhaps I will try to use the factory mount. I believe I read somewhere on the forum that if you attempt to mount a ram mount on the handle bars, the GPS will obscure the mirror.

I went with the front mount for my Zumo 350LM. I also installed a hidden 12v power socket with an inline fuse to the battery and mounted it in the handlebar well, just under the right side of the GPS.

That works as an option but can cause problems with tank bags and such...

If you can make it fit the Triumph mount I think you will find the high and central viewing position a great way of getting the most from any sat nav

Yes, thanks very much for this! I did consider that type of set up, but thought a tank bag would interfere. I will try the factory mounts.

ANother option is to use a ram ball on one of the existing (capped) mirror mount holes on the handlebar.

As another option I connected my Zumo 550 to the brake reservoir with Ram mounts and angled the GPS in towards the center and rotated the balls in the mount. This way I am not blocking the right mirror, plus I find that I see the unit better closer to me(with a sunshade attached) as my eyes aren't quite what they used to be.   :017:

Since I listen to the GPS thru my Sena 10 headset I did not need to wire the unit for sound thru the Triumph mount.
