Summary: I have had a Zumo 665 for 14 months I purchased from Amazon. I have two mounts and two antenna for it--one for a Goldwing 1800 and one for a BMW R1200RT. Two weeks ago (July 2013) the Zumo stopped recognizing both antennas. "No antenna detected". This is strictly for on road use. No abuse or abnormal service. Just miles and miles of miles and miles. Why of why did I buy another Zumo?
Summary: I did a loop and I turned it on to start it took me to the end and would not let me go in a loop so maybe I have to do two one there and one back and I have not found out if there is a filter for gravel roads because when I hit home it wanted to route me down some really bad roads like I said I am still learning how to use it
Summary: I chose this product for the quality and tradition of the brand in the market. I recommend everyone to buy because besides come within the promised time, my expectations were confirmed with the quality and finish of the piece. Amazing!
Summary: Ok here it goes, I'll break this into a pros and cons thing so I can keep track of this. Pros: comes with a car and motorcycle mount water resistant satellite traffic has been great satellite weather has been ok bluetooth works great with my phone garmin safety camera addon seems to work great Cons: I had to sell a kidney and lung on ebay to buy it had to split audio book mp3's into small segments so it would get lost the volume never gets loud enough for bike use, but...
Simply stated my Zumo 665 is a keeper. I just wish it did not cost so much.

Summary: Yes, it's pricey but you get a really good product from a really good manufacturer. My unit operates flawlessly. Garmin support team was there when needing help updating maps. If you plan on motorcycling in unknown areas believe this device is a safety requirement. The wireless connection works well. With confidence I now can to go out all day and wonder on unknown to me roads and areas. The unit records where you traveled.
Summary: I have tried several units on the market and all fall short to the Garmin. and if you need service or have a problem they always respond fast. Simply said it is the best Motorcycle GPS YOU CAN BUY.
Summary: I have run the ZUMO 665 on my 2011 BMW GSA since May 2012. I've got close to 8000 miles using the Zumo 665. In June I did a 6500 mile loop from the Southeast to the Rockies and back across the Northern States to the Great Lakes and back. During that trip the unit regularly locked up and/or shut itself off at least once a day. Sometimes it would require me to remove and reinstall the battery to get it to come back on.
