Garmin Mottoradd IV lock

I recently had the new BMW Motorrad Navigator IV installed on my 2010 R1200RT using the latest BMW mount (above instrument pod). The system/mount is great but can't find a way to lock the GPS to the mount. I guess their intent is to make it so easy to detach that someone won't leave it on the bike while away. It would be great to keep it mounted when leaving the area for short periods of time. Anyone know of a good way to accomplish this?

Re: Garmin Mottoradd IV lock

The Garmin made NAV III on the LT had a small screw in the latch that you push down to fix the NAV in place then a screw driver made for it was included to secure it. Not great security, but at least better that just letting folks push up the latch and walk away with it.

Beyond that, I cannot comment on the NAV IV.

Depending on where I park it, it stays there with the screw tightened down or it gets locked in one of the three luggage bags.
