    I am also thinking about removing the NAV V mount on my 16RT and using the mount that comes with the XT and fitting it into the same place that that Nav goes.

    Here are the issues.

    So far I am not sure the hole pattern is the same. Both mounts have 4 holes that I assume are spaced the same but I'm not sure. Need to confirm that.

    The XT is about .5" longer and about .25' taller. I'm thinking that if the XT mount is a bit deeper that might push the XT towards the rider a bit and clear the larger XT unit. If not I think I can fab a spacer that pushes the XT out of the cavity for the GPS enough to clear.

    Any thoughts are welcome.

    Touratech Locking Mount for Zumo XT

    I contacted Touratech about the possibility of a locking mount similar to the one all the other Garmin products. They said that it would be a month or so before they're on the market. I really like the Touratech locking mounts. Easy to lock and secure the GPS.

    Thank a teacher if you can read this, thank a veteran that it's in English.
