    Hey Robert, how is your mount holding up?

    Good work. Your mods are always thoughtful and well executed.

    I am about to copy this with my Vista Hcx.

    I know I am reviving a very old thread but today I finally got around to doing it (THANK YOU ROBERT!). Instead of gluing the factory bolt into the ball mount I had a machine shop make a custom insert with the correct size and threads on each end. Cost me $50 bucks for the custom work but it is perfect and I had the guy make sure he kept measurements in case I needed more. I have a Garmin 3590 so I also had to buy a couple of different Ram Mount parts to make it work right. If anyone is interested in the parts list PM me.

    got a 60CSx w/ RAM mounts + extras (maps, power leads, cables) on eBay for a steal.

    Mounted it similar to Robert's way, but used the RAM-B-367u mount (since it has a hole through it) with a M6 x 50mm bolt and some washers. I used the 2" arm, and seem to have pretty good range of movement, and it definitely doesn't get in the way.

    Here's a comparison shot of the shorter ball I used vs. the OP's
