Easy install of GPS; ZUMO?

I used to have a Garmin V on my Gold Wing and it worked ok for me, but now with the LT I am looking for a good not too expensive touch screen unit that is easy to mount and I can plug into the power socket. Does the ZUMO have a mount that fits the LT or would I still have to purchase some kind of RAM mount? Also I am looking for a unit that I can pre program on my computer versus having to do it all on the little unit's screen. Here too what mount would I need to get if I purchased any other Garmin. Note I do not need blue tooth or XM radio since I already have a SIRUS unit on the bike.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

The Zumo 550 comes with RAM mounts included with the purchase. You can see more info HERE. I'm not sure which of these would work on the LT however. I have an '05 LT and had the BMW Nav II. The Zumo mounts directly onto the existing Nav II mount without modification.

You can save some coin and purchase a Zumo without Bluetooth/XM by selecting either the Zumo 450 or 500 (Europe). You can get a product comparison of all three Zumos HERE.
