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. This little guy has bluetooth and will sync with your bluetooth helmet device very easily.
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. Now, the 2014 HD bikes have gps integrated into their "info-tainment" system but this is a great item.
Summary: I wanted a GPS for my HD Dyna Switchback motorcycle that was battery powered. It came with wiring to attach it to my motorcycle's electrical system and I may do that in the future. Now I install it with the RAM mount and turn it on. Works just fine. When I'm away from the bike it is easy to unclip the Zumo and take it with me. Small and easy to stick in a pocket. Recharging is easy with an optional charger or just plug it into your computer with the supplied UBS cable.
Summary: I never thought I would allow a electronic widget tell me where to go, a compass is all a guy needs. After a 2,700 mile motorcycle trip to Deadwood S.D. and back home I will not travel without it! It was a huge help in finding motels and food along the way. It gave me the confidence to go on all sorts of roads off the beaten path. Even though I still used my paper maps to plot my way, I'm know that it helped me to enjoy my vacation even more.
Summary: When I opened the box, I was impressed to find all the parts and components needed to do the installation on my bike. The RAM mounts are built sturdy. Electrical installation was a breeze. I had to update the unit's firmware using Garmin's Webupdater. Works great!
Summary: At the beginning I was afraid about the size, especially when the other models are almost an inch bigger, but this size is perfect, not too big, so it is not too notorious in my dashboard and the bike still looks great and it works just fine, I can see and follow directions even with sunglasses in a sunny day, the mounting process is pretty straight forward (I have a Harley Heritage) and It was just plug and play with my Bluetooth helmet (Vega) It doesn't play music, but...
