RAM also makes very high quality mounts for the Colorado. This article explains how to make a low profile handlebar mount using RAM components.

Yes. invisibleSHIELD makes a protector for the Colorado. It covers the screen of the Colorado.


A7.) I need a replacement or additional USB cable for my Colorado. What USB cable do I need to buy?


Any USB "mini" cable will do. This is the same cable that works with most recent digital cameras and portable hard drives. The USB cable from Garmin can be found here.
