Going from BMW ZUMO to a 550 - questions

My 07 GT came with the BMW Zumo; however, I have come to a point where I would like satelite radio, weather, etc.

Will the ZUMO 550 work in my existing BMW cradle/mount?

I just had my new Zumo 550 installed in a new bike, and the dealer used the BMW Zumo mount and cable. It's great. I ended up using a ZTechnik mirror hole mount for my Garmin GXM30 antenna, mounted on the left side grip:

Hope that helps. The Zumo is great, especially with the XM traffic and weather info.

Of course, with the Garmin version, you will also get a mount for your car/truck/SUV. Then you can always have your Zumo with you.
