Re: Switching gps units

If you have the Nav III mount it should have the same 4 bolt pattern that all Garmin mounts do (I believe). Not sure on the 550, but my Zumo 660 cradle was able to bolt right up to the same basic mount that my 2730 cradle used.

Try Ram Mounts, they have a pretty good selection.

You can use the 550 cradle and attach it to a PanaVise mount. Attach a ball plate to the factory GPS mount base on the stingray and attach the PanaVise to that as well.

If you have a BMR CoPilot shelf, you can mount a ball-stud to it and mount the rest of the PanaVise to that. This is my current install and I prefer it over the first one I described because it keeps the GPS closer to my line of sight.
