Why can't BMW nuvi 350 mount (p/n 65-90-0-429-403) be used with, say, 650? Do 3xx and 6xx series have different cradles? Can't 6xx cradle be attached to the BMW mount?

I like how the mount looks (I don't mind a black covered plastic square in the middle of the dash), but I was inclining towards 660 instead of 360...

AFAIK the cradle is different between 3xx and 6xx, but they use the same 17mm mounting ball. I see no reason why you can't attach a 6xx cradle to the BMW mount.

The neat thing about the BMW OEM Nuvi mount is the power supply. The cradle power runs through the ball to the BMW power system, with some kind of transformer.
I fell in 'love' with the new Nuvi 760 and wanted to mount in on the same ball. Couldn't do it, because of the power setup. I had an install guy wire the cigarette lighter based power unit (with traffic receiver) to a 12v power wire, then run the cable behind the dash and attach it to the cradle on the side.
I don't know if the traffic receiver works-we don't have that service here.
