I ended up welding a bit of stainless tubing to my windscreen bracket and clamping the mount for my Zumo 550 to it.

I tapped off the front running light for power.

I'll try to post pics later, but my TomTom Rider 2 is attached to the metal rod on the windscreen. I haven 't bothered to wire it for power yet.

Here's how I wired up my Zumo 550 GPS to my LX150:

This link has some pictures of my mount.

RAM can mount any electronic device to anything you want.

Some tips:

-Keep the unit close to what it's clamped to (?grammar?). Keep the lever arms short. It'll reduce vibration and misalignment

-Try to mount it out of the wind (behind the windscreen if you have one) 65+ MPH winds tend to push really hard on things like this.

-Think 'easy on/easy off' while wearing gloves

-Put it somewhere where you won't have to move your eyes much to see it.

-Make sure it doesn't obstruct access to any of your controls.

-Find a solution where you can move the GPS from Scooter to car to bike if you can. The RAM system has solutions for each and it's really handy to be able to do that

'nuff written. Thanks for listening.

I use a hp ipaq PDA as my GPS and mount it on the right-hand mirror stalk (I have chrome mirrors) and power it by a 12v cigarette socket located in the right-hand plastic knee panel, seems to work well enough. I use a bluetooth connection to ear-phones situated in my helmet and to the GPS receiver in my jacket pocket.
