Re: Garmin 595lm mounted in factory spot R1200RTW
Just mounted my zumo 595lm in the factory spot. I spaced it out , them modified the factory release to push on the zumo mount
Took the bezel off. Separated the 2 pieces. Drilled and put a machine screw through the button. Location is critical so it has full movement. Put a lock nut on the screw to create a fixed stud. Added a 2nd nut to create a base. Put a aluminum u channel machined to the correct length. Now I can release it using the factory button.
I always take it off when parked so lockable was not a concern.
I have a few pics. Was to far along to take detailed ones , but I think you can get the idea
