Zumo 660 and navigator v power supply are they the same ?

Post by cocker » Mon Apr 03, 2017 6:41 pm

Is the power supply which goes in the back of a garmin 660 the same as the power supply that goes in the back of a navigator v ?? And if it is does anyone have a spare one to sell thanks ??

I have just sold my GSA and I kept the Nav V Satnav for my new bike so I can answer this.

Yes, the Garmin Zumo 660 Mount does fit the Nav V. They are available on ebay :-

Obviously, it just works as a satnav, you cant get the bike performance functions.

If you get one, make sure it locks in correctly, there have been instances when they have not locked properly and have fallen off.

I wired it to the front right side light that is permanently on with the ignition (on my zzr1400), the garmin has a very small current draw and that was the nearest suitable power source I could find. It works fine (thumbs)

What a coincidence did you mount the sat nav with this same method I'm going to now use ? By using a ram ball I the centre of the bars ?? If at some point you could show me a couple of pics I would be very greatfull many thanks for your help

I had a waterproof satnav zip case for another bike that fitted in the handlebar stem. I ditched the bag, drilled holes in the plastic mounting plate and screwed the garmin mount to it. If the photo loads, it looks like this:-
