Important Safety Information

 WARNING

See the Important Safety and Product Information guide in the 

product box for product warnings and other important 

information.
When connecting the power cable, do not remove the in-line 

fuse holder. To prevent the possibility of injury or product 

damage caused by fire or overheating, the appropriate fuse 

must be in place as indicated in the product specifications. In 

addition, connecting the power cable without the appropriate 

fuse in place voids the product warranty.

 CAUTION

Always wear safety goggles, ear protection, and a dust mask 

when drilling, cutting, or sanding.

NOTICE

When drilling or cutting, always check what is on the opposite 

side of the surface.

To obtain the best performance and to avoid damage to your

Mounting Considerations
The device can be mounted using the included bracket, or it can 

be mounted flush with the dashboard using a flush-mount kit 

(may be sold separately).

Before permanently installing any part of your device, you 

should plan the installation by determining the location of the 

various components.
• The mounting location must provide a clear view of the 

screen and access to the keys on the device.

• The mounting location must be sturdy enough to support the 

device and the mount.

• The cables must be long enough to connect the components 

to each other and to power.

• The cables can be routed under the bail mount or behind the 

device.

• To avoid interference with a magnetic compass, the device 

should not be installed closer to a compass than the 

compass-safe distance value listed in the product 

specifications.

Bail Mounting the Device

NOTICE

If you are mounting the bracket on fiberglass with screws, it is 

recommended to use a countersink bit to drill a clearance 

counterbore through only the top gel-coat layer. This will help to 

avoid any cracking in the gel-coat layer when the screws are 

tightened.
Stainless-steel screws may bind when screwed into fiberglass 

and overtightened. Garmin recommends applying an anti-seize 

lubricant to the screws before installing them.

Select the mounting hardware appropriate for your mounting 

surface and for the bail-mount bracket.

Using the bail-mount bracket 

À

 as a template, mark the pilot 

holes through the screw holes 

Á

.

Using a drill bit appropriate for the mounting hardware, drill 

the four pilot holes.

Using the selected mounting hardware, secure the bail-mount 

bracket to the mounting surface.

Place the device into the cradle 

Â

.

Install the bail-mount knobs 

Ã

 on the sides of the device.

Place the cradle in the bail-mount bracket and tighten the 

bail-mount knobs.

Flush Mounting the Device

NOTICE

Be careful when cutting the hole to flush mount the device. 

There is only a small amount of clearance between the case and 

the mounting holes, and cutting the hole too large could 

compromise the stability of the device after it is mounted.
Using a metal pry tool such as a screwdriver can damage the 

trim caps and the device. Use a plastic pry tool when possible.
