    Who Makes Locking Mechanisms for GPSs?

    I've upgraded my GPS and of course the locking device for my Zumo 660 does not work with the Zumo 595.

    The other thing not working is my memory. I can't remember from which company I have ordered locking mechanisms for my past GPSs.

    Any one know which company produces these devices that keep a GPS secure on the bikes?

    Here is another option https://fortnine.ca/en/sw-motech-quick-lock-gps-mount

    Ram mounts could be an option with their locking knobs, but not sure I would really trust those and of course as previously mentioned touratech.

    Yes!

    Thank you Brian!

    I had been searching the Touratech site for some time now as this where I thought I had purchased these in the past but had no success locating locating these on their site.

    What bike are you mounting the 590 on? Depending on bike you do have other choices than Touratech.

    RAM mounts of course, and IIRC Wunderlich has mounts. I've also used these: https://www.zumolock.com/index.php/en/ and these: https://robertbeckerdesign.com/

    I am mounting the GPS on my RTs, the K100 and the R1100 (which has a shelf).

    I am interested in your suggestions but neither company has a picture of the actual GPS mounted on the locking unit. Do you by chance have any photos of your mounted & locked GPS?

    Which of the two products did you prefer? Their prices are certainly are better than what I have spent in the past.

    Cheers!

    For the '09 R1200RT I used the Wunderlich mount. This one to mount on the RT fairing: http://www.wunderlichamerica.com/mot...00887-888.html and this one to lock/secure the GPS: http://www.wunderlichamerica.com/mot.../21041002.html. What I like about this is the GPS is in my line-of-sight.
    Yes, the pricing for these is hideous. IIR I bought mine from Nippy Norman's in England https://www.nippynormans.com/. This wa several years ago and even with shipping and exchange rate it was significantly cheaper.

    Not a great photo but here it is on the RT:

    For the '10 R1200R I'm using the Kradellock mounted to a RAM ball and arm. The short RAM arm uses a security bolt that provides a little additional security. Edit: For some reason I can't get the second photo to upload.
