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.
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 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.
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.
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!
