Summary: This model is intended for use on motorcycles, but it is nearly useless in bright daylight. It's almost impossible to see the screen on sunny days, but can be read easily at night--exactly the reverse of when most of us ride. Also, when using the map function, there is very little detail. I'm not at all satisfied with this very expensive unit.
Summary: This the one for all riders. I ordered the 665 and returned it after 4 days. Do not buy the 660 or the 665. The 350 has features that have been removed from the newer models making the 350lm the leader of all motorcycle gps. Easy to change routes with out a laptop or pc. On the road friendly and easy to operate when riding. Thats makes it safe and easier to justify the money spent. This is one unit where you actually get your moneys worth.
Summary: Cursing the day I purchased this. All was good until 1 month outside of 12 mnth warranty period when the Motorcycle power supply became intermittent. Contacted Garmin at 14 month period after reading many online posts confirming this as a common issue. Garmin only interested in selling another cable but another $50 / year each year to replace the power cable when it fails again isn't very reasonable. It is now a very expensive car only GPS.
Garmin Zumo 350LM bad software some quality issues and crappy screen

Summary: I have had my unit for 6 months. The second time I used it in the car cradle the socket broke. I have owned numerous Garmin and this has never happened before. The cradle piece was replaced by the store but they made me pay for shipping(which was almost as much as the cradle). When I got the new cradle it doesn't fix properly and will fall out if you move it down. A couple of weeks ago I was using the 350LM in my car on my way to Indianapolis from northern Michigan.
Summary: This is the worst gps I have ever used! It locks up constantly and the programing is very difficult for a motorcycle unit. Save yourself 600 dollars and buy a car gps for $60. Whoever programed this gps should be Fired!
Summary: I have had Garmin GPS units in the past - both for hiking and for automobile use, so that was my first choice for the motorcycle. However, the high price, and the multitude of unfavorable reviews scared me away from this unit initially. After discussing Garmins within several motorcycle online communities it was apparent that there were a lot of riders who were totally pleased with their Garmins, so I decided to chance it - especially when I found the unit on sale.
Summary: I spent hard-earned money on this unit and on my second trip, the charging connection to the cradle started losing connection. I traced this back to the 2 tiny spring-loaded pins that rest against the back of the gps unit when it is in the cradle. one of the units has lost its "spring". I have taken the harness off the bike and is sending it back to Garmin for a replacement. Hopefully.
I almost sent this back for a refund - GLAD I KEPT IT!!!

Summary: What can I say? I hated this GPS when I first got it. It has a different system than the older Garmin motorcycle models it replaced and the pre-programmed Route 66 maps that worked on the older models would NOT work with this one! I boxed it up and was ready to mail it back when I friend talked me into keeping it. Glad I did!!! This unit is way easier to program than I first thought.
Summary: Wish I would have spent just a bit more and gotten the Montana (have to buy all the maps). This unit doesn't accept tracks, which means it's a complete pain in the rear to try and get it to follow a complicated track, especially off-road. there are many places you can get tracks for off-road adventure so that's just easy, but since this unit won't support it, you have to go through all sorts of machinations to get them planned.
