Garmin zumo 665


Just ordered a Garmin zumo 665 and wanted to know if anyone has installed one on their LT with the mount that comes with it?? Any tips would be appreciated

Re: Garmin zumo 665

Yep, I used the mount that came with it. Don't really have any tips except to say that you will have to take all the plastic off including the ray so that you can mount it and run your wiring. I am pretty new to BMW but have learned a lot regarding taking off the plastic or tupperware as some call it.
On a side note, since you just got it, check to make sure you have the up to date software for the unit as they just came out with an update because the unit was know for crashing of turning itself off. I downloaded the new software last week before I took a road trip and had no problems so it appears Garmin has fixed this problem. You will like the 665. I had the Nav IV but had problems with listening to MP3 and bluetooth so I got rid of it and got the 665 and really like it.

Good luck!
