Anybody Careto Share Their Recommended Vendor and setup for GPS/Satellite radio I have been trying to get the goods on a simple but effective setup for combining the GPS functions with GPS and radio and satellite radio... For exanple, the Garmin ZUMO 550 comes with the ability to use XM radio or Sirius sateliite and bluetootth cell phone as well as regular readio... THe challenge is getting the harness equipment to put all this into action and have it reasonably theft proof. This of course must work with the Honda controls already built-in like intercom and radio and CB. Any ideas?

I have a Zumo 550 and purchased this cable so that I could use the bluetooth with my cell phone.

I used the mount that came with the Zumo, you will need to come up with a cable that runs from the mount to the aux input connector that is located in the left pocket. I made my own cable. The XM receiver/antenna is shaped like a hockey puck and I have seen examples of an L bracket mounted using the same bolts that the Zumo uses. Looks pretty straight forward. I don't have XM on my bike but have seen writes ups on it.
You might do a search on this forum as it is GL1800 specific.

The Zumo 550 is the best GPS that I have ever used. It is my Blue tooth link to the phone, XM radio and navigation. It has more features that are motorcycle specific than any othe unit on the market and Garmin has excellent customer service.
