Summary: The price is steep, but it's totally worth it. I bought this for the BMW GS and it's so easy to use with gloves and the display is super easy to see day and night! I got rid of the Nuvi in the car and NOW use the ZUMO in its place. Awesome GPS with a ton of features!!
Summary: Even though it's expensive, I think it's worth the money. It's hard to see this screen in direct sun light when I'm using it on my motorcycle, but I'm on a motorcycle in the direct sun light, so I kind of expected that! I like the Service History App, on this Garmin. It doesn't actually remind me when service is required, but if you fill out the mileage when you actually preform the service, it will store this data for you to review.
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: 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.
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: Great GPS mapper!! Nice and bright, so it's easy to see from all angles in the daylight. I've used it on two cross-county trips so far with no problems. No updates have been do so far, but I'm sure they'll be easy when needed.
Summary: It has been in rain and heat and so far doing well. The Ram Mount comes with some soft screws that are poor quality and striped out before they could be tightened. I replaced them with allen bit topped bolts and new lock nuts. The bad part is that once wired in it has to stay in place. the way the mount works it can not be removed without undoing 4 bolts.
