TomTom One. Based on the experience with it, I would not buy another TomTom.

Over the winter I retired my trusty Streetpilot 2720.  I am now running a Zumo 220.  I got a great price at the GPS store and I don't really need a fully loaded unit.  The 220 will sync with my Scala Rider Q2 and do everything my Streetpilot did.  I've run about 1000 miles and so far it meets my needs.

I have a Garmin 60cs that I use for hunting, and based on the two responses above (bluepoof and Doug Just Doug) I'm willing to give it a try on a motorcycle.

I do carry my E-trex HC-x(?) loaded with the US topo maps in the tank bag for when I get lost Wink

I have a Garmin 2610 and a Zumo 550.  The 2610 worked well for a few years but all of a sudden the screen delaminated and I peeled off the residue, leaving a dull finish that scratched easily.  It still works but it's a little hard to see the screen under some conditions.  It also suffers from occasional "phantom touches".  I bought a new Zumo 550 earlier this year to get Bluetooth, waterproofness, and the buttons.

Before I bought the 550, I briefly had a Nuvi 765T.  Nice unit, but having to house it in an Aqua Box made it too bulky for me, and I don't think the screen brightness was as good as the Zumo.  Paying the difference to move up to the Zumo was significant but I know it will be a better unit for the bike.  Too bad the 550 only has lo-fi MP3 playback via BT.  My Sena SMH-10 headset sounded fantastic when being driven by the 765T, not even comparable with the 550, but if I am not mistaken, it came along before the hi-fi stereo profile for BT was created, anyway, it doesn't do hi-fi sound over BT.

But I really couldn't care less about that since I don't plan on listening to MP3s while I ride.  I find music distracting when I ride.

Coming in late on this one, I use the Tom Tom One XL, an older unit from my car.  It works great for me and is easier to navigate through screens than the Garmin in the car.  My only problem is taht it says it is BT but I can't get it to pair with my Scala Q2, could anyone help with that?

Thanks!

Just got a Zumo 660 after 10 years with an eTrex Vista.  I'll let you know how the Zumo works out after my trip to the national.  Worked great going to Home Despot and back (sorry no trip report).

Initial impressions are that it's going to be really cool.  I've just done the routing and uploaded to the unit and I can say that Mapsource has come a long way.

The eTrex was monochrome and really small screen which was difficult for my aging eyes to see.  It also wasn't a true nav, you had to really understand how to read it and navigation principles to use it properly.

Still useing a 2730 but got sick of the XM connection being a PITA so I went with a separate XM unit in a waterproof boating box. Much happier Bigok

Since Garmin is no longer supporting the 2730 with their exchange program I will eventually need to move up to a newer model.

Love my old Garmin GPSMap 60C.  It does everything I need it to.  If I was to get another gps unit, it would be a general purpose handheld with expandable memory, like the GPSMap 62S.

 I just bought a nuvi 500, refurb deal from Ebay and couldnt be happier. It does all that I need and it's waterproof. I was worried about the charged battery life, from the description it states eight hours but I am sure that is used at the lowest possible screen brightness setting and limited use, so I wired it directly to the ignition power.

Garmin Nuvi 765T w/ traffic in a ram box as of this 20 minutes ago.  Detachable as needed for use in the car or whatever.   Thought about using my phone since it has GPS but then I wouldn't have an excuse (riding can't see/hear/feel your call/text) if the wife found out.

I use Sprint Navigation on my Palm Pre in the the Pickup and Navigate by dead reckoning on the bike.    If I'm going someplace specific on the bike I'll use a paper map and stop and look at it when I need to.  Most of the time on the bike I'm trying to get myself lost.  In Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Eastern New York and Northern Massachusetts where I do most of my riding it's rare that I can ride for more than an hour without figuring out where I am.
