Best GPS mount for Versys??

Just moved to the mountains in TN and NC. So many cool roads all around us so want to find them without the worry of getting lost. Checking into getting a waterproof GPS but many have different views of what to use. Anyone on here have an opinion for what you like best for the Versys? Mount and GPS?

Thanks

I like the Garmin Zumo 550 and Motowerk Mount.

Mountains of Northwestern NC here and have yet to buy a mount for my Nuvi 265W. Not a waterproof model but I'll figure out a ziplock bag-able solution.

RAM mount is great. I ride gravel and dirt roads as much as slab. Stays put never moves.

I have a Zumo 550. I made an upper dash to mount it and to be able to add other switches down the road.

Garmin 550 on a RAM mount. Just get the mount out leaving the bar bracket when not in use. Added a 12v SAE connector to power the unit.
