MOTORCYCLE GPS SUGGESTIONS

ANYONE RUN A BIKE GPS THEY REALLY LIKE?

SEEMS ZUMO 550 IS BEST BET FOR THE BUCK.

ANY COMMENTS / INSIGHTS APPRECIATED.

Get one that has route planning, so you can plan out your exact route turn by turn.

+1 - the Zumo 550 is awesome but waaaaay overkill and waaaaay expensive.

I use a Garmin Nuvi 770 and it works great.

I, too, use Nüvi. Mine is a 760 - found it on CL for $100.00. As Perf_White_GT stated I think it is important to be able to program your custom route. I program my routes with the desktop computer and send it to the GPS. I mount it on my bike with a ram mount, but unfortunately, it is not water proof.

I got a Nuvi 550 for Christmas. Unfortunately, I can't give a review of it because I'm still waiting on the outcome of my accident.

I use Microsoft Streets and Trips to make up the route on the laptop then export the file to the GPS so I can use it.

Can't get much easier than with MS Streets and Trips...
