A must have for any adventure,18 hour battery and water proof.
9 October 2011
Summary: Years of abuse mounted on my dualsport 450. Water proof,durable and reliable. I still use it on the dash of my pickup. I have a mount I my ATV and mountain bike. Basically it can't be beat for $.
Summary: bought gps from seller. its a little old fashioned but its a good buy if your getting one of these for yourself for the first time. even without an insruction manuel its easy to use. just needed a little updating.
Summary: I used my Quest2 on my motorcyle and I was pleasantly surprise how compact and easy it was to use. I wish it would recalibrate a bit quicker, It left me hanging a few times after making a couple of turns on a freeway thru a few large cities. I did get rained on but never had any problems with it. The only time I lost signal was in cities with lots of large buildings. 2200 miles with my Quest2 and I am happy to have purchased it. Overall it is worth it.
Summary: I have four different Garmin products and this is one of the best. It has all of the maps preloaded and is not difficult to program routes. The Quest is almost the same cost and not half the product of the Quest-2. I have both units. The Quest-2 is just the right size for a motorcycle or even an automobile.
Summary: This unit is a good unit for anyone who needs one for use on a motorcycle, it is a little slower to adjust for changes in route. Sometimes charts a route that just isn't close to being fastest, or closest. The parts I do like are the speed display, distance to next turn, and ease of programing. This unit is a great unit for a great price compared to other weather resistant units on the market.
Summary: I love the fact that this units fits in a shirt pocket and can run for many hours on one recharge. I bought it to replace my Garmin Quest that was lost/stolen. Unlike the original Quest, this one holds all of North America (no more reloading maps every time I travel). However, I have noticed that the Quest 2 (compared with the original Quest) is slower calculating routes, finding things, and refreshing the map as you travel.
