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: 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.
Summary: Do not buy this product. I bought this gps to update from my Garmin 2610. The routing does not work, setting fastest route and avoid unpaved roads will send you down little tracks with grass in the middle. A protracted email correspondence with Garmin, after an appallingly rude treatment by phone support, did not resolve this issue. "the gps is working as designed" was the final email.
Summary: I was expecting a lot more from a $699 (retail) GPS. It has less features than my old NUVI 350 (no MP3) so I sent it back. Super fit/form, but the search function was awkward with the "glove friendly" design (multiple screens for the keyboard). Reception is rock solid, but the unit would not charge in the motorcycle cradle/mount. The USB charging port was not accessible when mounted on the M/C mount either. I guess for the money I can buy a new smartphone and use an app.
Summary: I do not recommend this GPS. I bought it to obtain the voice prompts for directions as an upgrade to my Garmin Nuvi 550. The Bluetooth connected fine to my headset (Interphone F5), but the directions voice was garbled, missed and gave wrong turns (e.g., left when I needed to go right) and prompts came at a turn with no prompt early enough before a turn. Often the navigation bar said I was off road, but the GPS displayed valid main roads that I was on.
Summary: This device has produced constant errors such as, "Cannot Calculate the Route" "Out of Memory" and I could not find any of my routes on a new 16gig memory card. Cannot see the screen in direct sunlight. Period. Compared to my old Streetpilot 2730 this is a POS. The unit is certainly overpriced. The motorcycle mount is not easy to remove as the powercable is attached to the mount without a quick disconnect of the powercable. The device cannot be locked in it's mount.
Summary: Beware, beware, beware. This is a great GPS, but it is horribly unreliable both the unit and the cradle. If you really need a Garmin GPS try the 660 which, though not as easy to use, is very reliable albeit a lot more expensive. You'd be better off buying an iPhone and a waterproof case than this. Rotten QA/QC Avoid. I'm £500 down the toilet with this thing and it has worked twice. It's back with Garmin again.
Summary: The most I've ever paid for a motorcycle unit and I can't go more than 10-50 miles without it freezing up and having to a factory rest (losing all my data every time). Do not take my opinion as fact. Check the forums to confirm this review.
