Zumo 660- You got to be klidding

Just got my Zumo 660 delivered. I have a GT and an LT. I have a mount on my brake reservoir for my NUVI on the GT. Finally sprang for a waterproof zumo. I open the box and there is no way to mount on my reservoir or even to use the 12V outlet. Even if I was to mount on the GPS mount, what are you supposed to do with all those wires hanging out. Wholly sh**. Why couldnt they just have kept it simple. I should have an option to hardwire, even though they have all these xtra long cables with it. What are you supposed to do with all these other cables if you do not use them or even reservoir mount using the cigarette lighter to power. Any suggestions.

I would imagine the Nuvi uses the same four scew hole pattern for mounting the base to the mount as the Zumo, that is one thing that has remained constant with the Garmins. You should be able to re-use your existing mounts, though you will have to have two bases, one for each bike.

As far as the pigtail, just add a bmw plug to the power cord from the Zumo and you will be able to power it the same way you had the Nuvi. This can be purchased from one of our own members at http://www.just-ride-it-accessories.com/index.html .
