Does 660LM box contain everything needed.

So, after two years overseas, I am back stateside with my motorcycle. Spent a bit to get it fully tuned after the neglect, have an MSF refresher course scheduled.

What I don't have, is a clue of how to get around the Monterey area of California. I am on the verge of buying the 660LM, and I just have a simple question that I can't find the answer for. Is everything needed to put it on the bike included in the box, or will I also need to grab a mount? I think it is the latter, but I am opposed to throwing away money.

I do get the bit that I'll have to get a bluetooth device for the helmet, and I'll work that separately.

Side note, hey, how are you all doing?

Yes, the box contents from the product page, I've read it through. When they say Motorcycle mount, is that just the pinned back plate and power cable, or does it also include the hardware needed to attach the mount to the bike? Since they weren't kind enough to include a picture of the box contents or itemized list of the box contents, so I am left with the assumption that when they say mounting hardware, the components to attach the device to the bike are included.

p.s. In my continued dive to find the information, I found an itemized and linked list at gpscity.com, that shows everything included. Thank you all for your time.

I just got mine and it came with a couple different ram mounts, a u bolt to mount to handlebars, some different sized bolts to mount to existing fittings on your forward controls and a mount for a car.

I used none of it on my GSA. I bought $3 worth of hose clamp type fitting and mounted it to the crossbar. I used 2 of these and it is really solid. I figure the rubber isolation can't hurt either.

Can anyone tell me if there is a way to force Basecamp to show forest service roads and smaller roads without zooming in so much? It is hard to plan a route when you can't see where the road ends up.
