There is a radar bracket for the police bikes that mounts to the TFT mounting bracket. I cant find the thread but it was a awesome install of the IV, which I would convert to a XT if it was me.

Here is the thread.

I mounted mine down low in the center. I used the Zumo for music, phone, and routes. I have the map zoomed out to see more of the route and I use a dedicated bike phone with no SIM card for the TFT maps. I use the TFT maps to see what the corners look like coming up. It's a good setup this way.

Got a "18 RT and I wonder if the mount for the XT would fit in the space where my Garmin595 is mounted.....

Pasobiker, how do you like the gen2 V1?
The Valentine V1 Gen 2 is the most sensitive RD I have ever used. Detects threats forward, back and sideways. You can program the bands to be alerted on and almost completely eliminate false alarms. Here in California the CHP (and most cities) uses the Ka band so I limit my alerts to that band. Worth the $$.

Thanks! I have the first gen with the dongles (even BT) :)

I don't have an XT but I still use my Zumo 660. I will continue to use it until/if I get the connectivity/voice issues resolved with the TFT and App on the new bike.
I suspect that I will probably use it after that when leading tours etc as they can be quite long and complicated when planned on BaseCamp. I've included some pictures if they are of any use.
The mount from Telferizer goes where the BMW badge is on the headstock.

Pasobiker, I’m interested in the V1 Gen2. Can you share how you mounted it? Can it be plugged into the auxillary port? Thanks.
