BMW navigator mount to Zumo XT adapter

Post by Stu »

I have just upgraded my bike from an FJR1300 to a BMW R1200RT

I was contemplating buying the BMW Navigator 6 for the RT but ££££££££££££££

Like 700 of them :roll:

I have a Garmin zumo XT thats less than a year old so I couldn't justify changing

So the search started to find a solution to mount the XT in the same position as the BMW one (which is really a Garmin)

I found a couple of videos showing people modifying mounts and adding extenders on the bolts to mount the Zumo XT but then you need a tool to release the Zumo XT and then you had to get power to it

I also found an adapter that clips in to the BMW mount then you can attach then Zumo XT mount to that thus using the OE release button but then you still need to get power to it!

Then I came across this solution below! It allows the Zumo mount to be bolted to it then attaches to the BMW mount and also takes the power from the BMW mount and feeds the Zumo

Posted from Italy in just over a week and it works a treat

Yes I don't have control over it like I would with a BMW navigator but to be honest I don't need that anyway

Tucked back in there like that, that's nice! Wish the FJR had a cubbyhole like that. I recently went from an '07 FJR to a '13 and had to move my phone. I had it mounted down low between the bars but the '13 dash changes moved all the indicating lights down low. On the '07 it was fine but on the '13 the phone there blocks those lights.

@rbentnail I had a 2001 FJR and made a mount for the sat nav so it was up high

I am picking up a BMW RT in a couple of weeks and also have a XT. I have managed to order one of these so hopefully it should do the trick!
