This is probably a regular topic on here but does anyone know of a good Sat-Nav system for bikes? i've got an SV1000s so could do with a system that clips underneath the screen or somewhere around there without blocking the dials...  

preferably one that covers the UK and Europe although i guess theyt can all be programmed to cover any area????  

hope you can help.

thanks

Rob

Sure, a Garmin 60 Cx! It does just about everything and more than some other models except for voice commands during AutoRouting.

I use it on the motorcycle, in the car and when meandering though cities while on foot.

This is what it looks like on my motorcycle...

Look for an old copy of MapSource European Roads & Recreation. This Garmin/MapSource map package doesn't AutoRoute, but it covers all of the UK and Europe...and it can be copied without needing an "unlock" code to install it. Its what I use.

+1 on the 60Cx.  Last summer we went to Italy and Switzerland via UK.  We used a Garmin 60C (older and slower than the 60Cx and no memory card) and City Navigator Europe.  It worked great.  Drove all over Tuscany and Switzerland, in major cities (Firenze, Berne, Zurich, etc) and never had a glitch.  Autorouting is a sweet extra that saved the day several times.

We were driving, but I use the 60C on the bike all the time.

Bump.

Er, the problem with starting duplicate topics is you don't get all the answers in one place or, worse, get two different answers for the same question.
