Worst gps ever!

John M. Boyd, Amazon
31 March 2014
  • 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!

pathetic design for ADV motorcycling.

Kyle Kirschenmann, Amazon
25 November 2013
  • 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.

DO NOT BUY!

john "snicholson16", Amazon
6 October 2013
  • 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.

Doesn't charge on the bike cradle

Gary Pidgeon, Amazon
8 September 2013
  • 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.

Bad GPS, bad bluetooth directions

pbrowne, Amazon
6 July 2013
  • 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.

Constant Errors

ArTravlR, Amazon
5 July 2013
  • 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.

Beware

R W Shelley "rwshelley", Amazon
30 June 2013
  • 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.

Garbage

B. Richer "Safe Boater", Amazon
5 June 2013
  • 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.

Poor Bluetooth features-Lack of Caring From Garmin

Philip Carlin, Amazon
4 July 2012
  • Summary: Sept 2012 Update: OK, Garmin is now on my _ _ _ _ list, they just do not care about the customer. The basic operation of unit is fair/good, but the lack of the true ability to link your cell phone directly to the unit is a BIG joke. For the high end price Garmin should issue a software update which provides for this capability! I would NOT, again- NOT recommend purchasing this unit. Find another mfg. who cares about your business!
