Summary: without it I would be completely screwed sometimes on a motorcycle trip. This little guy does the job unless you have really bad eyesight. If you are vision impaired then I suggest springing for the $800 or $900 larger screens.
Summary: I have had this unit now for 2 seasons, in December this year going down to the US the unit stopped charging in the car. Once I returned home I determined that it was the USB port was malfunctioning. It worked perfectly until the battery ran out, and it won't take a charge now.
So Good Harley incorporated similar into new models.

Summary: Wonderful weather-proof GPS that mounted easily on my HD and is so easy to use, even with gloves. A little tricky pairing with both my cell phone, helmet head-set and IPod but would recommend it if your mc is not so equipped.
Summary: I bought the Zumo two years ago for about $400. I bought the gps, the case, and the mounting gear with a power cable. I don't use this unit much since I don't ride my motorcycle much but over the years I've noticed some serious issues. For one, the maps are terrible.
Summary: OK. It USUALLY works. But if you're slowly creeping through a roundabout, that's not a good time to block the screen and ask "Would you like to switch to walking mode?" Hell no, idiot box..I'm trying to merge with a lot of angry trucks and this isn't the time to deal with a dialog.
Summary: I have owned several Garmins, starting with the Garmin III (the first gps with a map) but lately I am very disappointed in their products and their service. There are several "dumb" issues with the 220: - When you receive it, it has many firmware bugs. You must update the firm-ware first.
