SEATTLE, Wash. - Touratech's latest anti-theft device is a locking mount designed exclusively for Garmin's new Zumo 590LM GPS.

It gives riders the confidence to leave their bikes unattended, provides a tenacious grip on the device and absorbs damaging vibration, the company noted.

The locking mount is engineered with input from adventure travelers around the globe, the company added. Constructed from lightweight aluminum and stainless steel, the mount weighs 13 ounces, is 4.75 inches tall, 5.5 inches wide and 3 inches deep.

Available in black or silver anodized finishes, it is used in conjunction with Garmin's power cradle. The mount grasps the GPS with upper and lower jaws, opening them wide using elastic-band tension. The mount disables the cradle's release button to prevent tampering when closed, and the GPS can be locked in with the turn of a key. A pair of keys, which can be matched to other Touratech products, is provided.

The unit is isolated from engine vibration and road shock with four rubber dampers. It was designed to attach to half-inch crossbars, bracket adapters, RAM mounts and similar devices that affix electronic accessories to motorcycles. The cradle retails for $184.90.
