Search for "Zumo mount" or similar. Lots of posts on this topic. I'm pretty new here myself, but I'm sure requests for info on a topic like this that has been covered many times get pretty old. Search before posting, please.

Ram-mount.com has a bunch of stuff used for mounting GPS, cellphone, radar detectors, etc. I use several of their items to mount my Zumo and iPass. Good quality, easty to mount and very adjustable.

What would be the best mount for Garmin 550 to be placed above gauges and not on handle bars?

I don't think there is a "best" place to mount it. It may depend on the style of tank bag you use if any in relation to visibility.

Nah, post away. The fun is in the exchange.

I really like the BMW stock mount for their rebranded version of the 550. Custom fit and there is a dedicated wiring harness plug just hanging out under the bars, waiting to be used.
