my Garmin 2610 has developed the DTs and is locking up, so I found a refurbed Zumo 450 -- still learning it (it's close enough that it's confusing).

I believe it'll be fine in a few more uses.

Bomber you'll love the 450. I bought a brand new one two years ago for 369 and it's been a great unit.
The Zumo's are very robust, I like the waterproof, vibration-proof features and have found it very intuitive and easy to use.
It takes care of my MP3 needs also so I don't have to mess with an external Ipod or anything.

Con -- I think you'll be right -- I havn't figure out how to move the map around without telling it to save a spot as a favorite, but I'm pretty sure I'm just being ham-fisted.

Turning off the 3D feature raised my opinion a great deal ;-}

Don't "tap" the screen with your fingertip when you're going to drag the map around. Place your finger on it softly + then drag.
The "tap" action will set a point. That is kind of a pain.

I think the poll should have allowed multiple votes since I split time between Nuvi in the car, and Zumo on the bikes.  I voted Zumo because I have two of them, but that also leaves out the Foretrex.

I've got a Garmin StreetPilot 2610 that has served me well for a few years.
But I got tired of it routing me to restaurants that aren't in biz anymore - last fall it took me to out in some farm fields for a non-existant dairy stand.  And I found I can no longer get updates for it... so I just got a Nuvi 765(t).

Having it play music and pause the music to give directions is quite nice.  I never listened to the 2610 on the bike.  But I don't care to be 'wired' to it, so I'm going to check out the FM and bluetooth funcitons - which reminds me to pair my phone to it - I don't care to talk 'thru' it, but it'd be neat to be notified when I get a call or text.

But it isn't bright enough to read the map on a sunny day - which is when I tend to ride most....
Good thing the 'repeat directions' button is at the top left where I can easily find it.
I just wish I could have the 'skip to next song' button on the screen at the same time as the 'repeat directions' button.

I'm chuckling -- last year at the Regional, my wife and I decided we wanted some dinner at a little joint in Mineral Point.

 Who knew there were two Mineral Points in Wisconsin -- one with, you know, buildings and streets and eateries and gas stations . . .. and one in the middle of a corn field, 30 some odd miles from the one with streets and stuff.

I'm always amazed at how many people have the Zumos—those things are freakin' expensive!  EEK! I'm also amazed more people haven't looked at the Garmin Oregon. I'm loving mine (and it's a touchscreen so can be used with gloves).

But I know your choice of GPS depends on whether you also want to listen to tunes, yak on the phone, dial up weather, etc...so I guess if you do all those things all the time, dropping $800 on a GPS makes sense (I think, LOL).

I realized I also forgot to include Tom-Tom units in the poll...but I don't even know if they make any suitable for motorcycling?

I'll have to do some searching around here...has anybody gotten one yet? Any reviews?

PS - Yeah, a refurbished Zumo would be the way to go...I wouldn't mind having one...but I like the smaller Oregon 'cause I use it for bicycling too (a Zumo would look pretty funny strapped to a bicycle handlebar.  Lol )

Am I the only one who uses a (very) old Garmin GPS V?
OK, so the base map dates from 2001, my loadable-via-serial-port maps (CitySelect North America V. 5) does not give me info on most backroads, but hey, for $150 (new in box) back in 2005, it did the trick in the last five years!

This.

I use a Nuvi in the car, and eTrex on the bike.  I don't use audible prompts on the bike so the small, inexpensive eTrex fits the bill.  Nuvi isn't guaranteed for water resistance.

I am currently using a 5 or 6 year old TomTom one.  (on the bike) and a Garmin Nuvi in my cage.   The Nuvi is a bottom of the line GPS but does everything I need it to do in the car like traffic avoidance and take me here to my destination but does not have the necessary functions for route planning and stuff.  The biggest short coming and why it is not on my bike is the fact that I can not load routes into this device.  I am sure I can find some software that will do it, but until the warranty is up I am not going to tinker with it.  

The TomTom one has really been a great GPS.  I like the layout of the windows and the order that you do things.  It is very intuitive.  It is very easy to do route planning and even allows you to save these routes so you can use them over and over...  However stock it has a few drawbacks.  1. No trip computer function (this was why I bought the Garmin for the cage)  2. (no earphone connection so I can not tie it into my Motocom.   3.  The device is not water proof.  

Upgrade for solution to problem #1
I've found a solution to the lack of a trip computer.  Via the wonder world  of the World Wide Web...  I've came across a download called Tom Tom TripMaster.  This download brings out the full capabilities of the TomTom with very few drawbacks.  I highly recommend this as an addition to your tomtom.  The one option that this software has that I can not yet take advantage of is speed alert.  The software allows you to specify a speed and if your GPS supports it it will send out an audio signal alerting you to the fact your going to fast.  Other features of this software. 1) Large Speed Readout.  2) elevation readout. 3) Max Speed Readout.  4) average speed,  5) Distance   6 data logging,  (I am sure it does a bunch more but this is all I really use)


Upgrade for sa solution to number 2 no ear phone jack.  
When I found it was necessary to replace the battery in the TomTom I cracked the case and noticed how easy it would be to solder a connection onto the connections for the external speaker.  Then with some support from Radio Shack I was able to get a standard headphone jack and solder it in.   I didn't install the jack in the case since it was too tight a fit, but instead drilled a small hole and fed the wires through.  

I've not found a solution to number 3 yet, but I know I can do it.  so far anytime  the weather has gotten threatening I either drop it in my tank bag or it sits out behind the faring and as long as I am making decent speed it seems to come out without any issues.

Maybe I've just trained myself well...but I've never had a GPS that gave voice directions...and it's difficult for me to imagine ever needing that feature? (e.g. I'm surprised at how many people seem to depend on that!). I just glance at my GPS often, and always keep one of my data fields displayed that shows "Distance to Next (Turn)" so I always know exactly how much farther til the next navigation point.

I'm still running a Streetpilot 2720.  I would love to upgrade to a weatherproof/bluetooth unit, I just don't want to shell out big bucks.  I'll bite the bullet when my 2720 dies or I'm the winning bidder of a Zumo 550 on Ebay.

Used a 2610 for about 4 yrs - it's been acting up and I recently scratched the screen.  Just picked up a Nuvi 550 since it's waterproof.  I thought I wanted a Zumo 450/550 but didn't think I needed any of the added features.  The screen sizes are the same so it should be fine.  I also like the idea of it having a battery so I can walk around with it if I wanted to (has a mode to use while on foot).  this is the first one I've actually purchased new and not as a refurb.

Previously had 2610, before that a GPS V, and before that an eMap - all Garmin.

Man, no doubt about it—the Nuvi and Zumo are WINNERS! I'm still amazed more people don't use the smaller handhelds like the eTrex and the (newer and better) Dakota, Colorado and Oregon units. (It's almost as if people read Garmin's site, see the word "trail" next to those models, and think "Gee, guess I can't use that one since I'm on a motorcycle."  Lol)

But I'm not bashing the Nuvi/Zumo crowd. If I had the money I might get one, because the big screen is definitely nice. On the other hand, I have (knock on wood) good eyesight and have NO problems seeing the map on a smaller screen...and when it comes to GPS navigation, my Oregon delivers 100% of the functionality of either a Nuvi or a Zumo (well, except traffic reports and weather, but I don't really consider that "navigation").

Now I'm tempted to start a second GPS poll—specifically to ask Nuvi/Zumo users: do you just use your GPS for navigation? Or also for phonecalls, listening to music, listening to the radio, getting traffic and weather, etc?

(Come to think of it, are there any Nuvi models that do all that other stuff besides navigate? Or is that just limited to the Zumo?)

I'm still using my trusty 60CS with 56MB of memory.  It's a pain to  have to load maps for where I'm going if I leave my "home" area.  As far as navigation goes it works very well.  However, the rocker button is starting to get a little flaky and I've noticed some condensation inside the screen as of late.  

The problem I have with the newer units is that the screens absolutely SUCK.  They are so washed out in the sun that it makes them hard to read at a glance.  Mine looks like a sheet of paper when you look at it, even in direct sunshine.  BTW I think this particular problem is the same on ALL the touchscreen models, even the "outdoorsy" models.

The only reason I'm looking toward the new Zumo models is because I want to use the unit as a hub.  By using the built in Bluetooth and MP3 player an can get rid of the iPod and the wires associated with the various hookups.  Heck you can even take a phone call if you are so inclined.

I agree, the screens on the Dakota/Colorado/Oregon series aren't as bright as the eTrex/60CS series. That concerned me at first...but the Oregon 450 that I got (a newer model) has an improved screen...and I've found that when powered off the bike, it's fine—I've never had any trouble reading the screen (even in direct sunlight)...though it's still not as bright as the eTrex/60CS.

For me, the vastly increased screen resolution on the Oregon (and slightly larger screen size) makes up for the slight decrease in visibility.

Yep, this is clearly a big reason why people choose these models! I just think the prices on the Zumos are INSANE—I don't care if they have bluetooth, Sirius radio, weather, MP3s, etc. I know you can get them for less refurbished...but just on principle, I don't want to support Garmin's "Bend Over and Pay This" pricing for those units.

For this reason alone...I may break ranks and look into a Tom-Tom unit if I ever go big-screen...because Tom-Tom's pricing is a LOT more reasonable...

I have 2610(2), 2730(2), and a 2820. They have been all used Garmin Streetpilots. One even came with a lifetime XM subscription. For my use, I have been very pleased with their performance. No issues at all! I have never been one to require the latest and greatest in equipment. None are wired into a headset for voice commands. They are strictly for dropping breadcrumbs, routing destinations, handling detours, and getting a fix on upcoming twisties.

The most I ever paid was $250 for a factory refurbished model(my first 2610).

I use the iGo8 software on my hp ipaq pda.  I recently added a rockstar so I can add it to my motocomm and have music and the gps commands.  I use it with the gurjon skins that add functions to the stock igo8.  



Loading routes is really easy, as is routing on the device.  I convert routes we share on my computer (unless Cruzman converts them for me) then copy them to the gps card.

since I'm running it on a pda, I'm not limited to the type of software I can run.  I also have tried Garmin but didn't find it as easy to use as igo8.

I like the headphone feature so I can get alerts, like for red light cameras and when I'm over the speed limit (only works on the interstate).  Also like getting the directions from my guy (yes, I changed the voice) so i don't need to look at the screen.

my Garmin 2610 has developed the DTs and is locking up, so I found a refurbed Zumo 450 -- still learning it (it's close enough that it's confusing).

I believe it'll be fine in a few more uses.


Chris's 2610 is still functioning flawlessly.   Bigok

Am I the only one who uses a (very) old Garmin GPS V?
OK, so the base map dates from 2001, my loadable-via-serial-port maps (CitySelect North America V. 5) does not give me info on most backroads, but hey, for $150 (new in box) back in 2005, it did the trick in the last five years!


I have one on my XR- I use it for hunting too- works great.   Thumbsup

My Zumo 550 has worked great since I got it.  My only gripe was the fact that the newer maps didn't fit the built-in memory, but an SD card ultimately fixed that.

Plus I ditched the factory security screws for the mounts and installed some knurled ones that can be turned sans tools.

I'd buy another if I lost or broke mine tomorrow.

 I just think the prices on the Zumos are INSANE—I don't care if they have bluetooth, Sirius radio, weather, MP3s, etc. I know you can get them for less refurbished...but just on principle, I don't want to support Garmin's "Bend Over and Pay This" pricing for those units.

For this reason alone...I may break ranks and look into a Tom-Tom unit if I ever go big-screen...because Tom-Tom's pricing is a LOT more reasonable...


While I agree the prices on the Zumos are insane, I personally believe Garmin makes a superior product. I've owned Two Garmins, a Magellan, and a Tom Tom GPS. I would rate the Garmin #1, Magellan #2, and Tom Tom #3.The Tom Tom had the most problems, enough so that I don't think I would buy another. I'll stick with Garmin until they give me a reason to look elsewhere.

Nuvi 1350 in the car . I just got a 1490T for the bike. Want a Zumo but I'm to spread out money wise to afford one. And i've never seen a refurb availible locally Sad

The1490 is working out great though. It has traffic which is a real bonus trying to get into work. and it was only $199 at Costco.

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 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.

 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.

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.

I apologize in advance if this should go in a new thread.....

But, can those of you who mentioned the Nuvi 1490 T tell me how to load routes I create into it?  Purchased a refurbished unit from Amazon for not much over $100.  I'd like to upload routes from google maps/google earth, if possible.  Or how to I put the garmin mapping software on my computer-Mac Pro laptop.

Thank you in advance for any guidance the group can provide to a gps/mapping newb.

Nuvi 1690, referb from Walmart for under $100. For an additional $23 I got a 3 yr replacement warranty.  Allows me to plan out routes with lots of way points and the Nulink is a cool feature. I can get lost in the middle of no where, type in "free wifi" and bingo it is off to a local cafe ior what not for refreshements and interwebs.  Bigsmile

Zumo 550 crapped out after 2 years and it's $150 to fix.

$100 got me a Nuvi 255W with RAM mount and I'm back in business.  $600 paper weight looks nice sitting on my desk.  Never again will I spend so much money on a GPS when there are perfectly functional refurbs with LARGER screens for $85!

Up until recently this gps has been a great way to get my feet wet.  Now, after many a great routes, it's pretty buggy and doesn't function how it once did Sad
Still gets the job done though...

Refurbished 1490T on a RAM Clutch reservoir mount.  Partially blocks the Tach but I don't use the Tach much anyway so no problem.  Nice and big for my tired, old eyes.  Turned the voice announcements off.

Oh, so you use one of those air powered SMART GPS' that constantly updates location and always has the most up to date maps?  Meaning it always knows where it is, the road it's on is always real, and the speed sensor is exactly that.  Must have taken years to develop and cost a lot.

Since I upgraded my phone I now need to upgrade my response to this thread.  I'm now using Sygic on my HTC 3G Shift smart phone.  It stores the map data on the phone which address the problem my old cell based GPS had where it would loose the map data when it lost signal.  I wasn't sure I really wanted a GPS on the bike since I don't usually have (or want) a specific route on the bike but I'm getting hooked.  

I need to come up with a better mount now though.  I've been strapping it to the top of the tank inside a waterproof pouch designed for that purpose.  That works but in heavy rain the touch screen gets randomly activated and under heavy braking the the display flips around upside down as the g sensor gets confused.

Garmin Quest2,  it is painfully slow but does the job.  I recently just figured out how to download custom routes to it that I design on the computer.  A Zumo is on my wish list, just can't justify it with the Quest still working.

Zumo.  

After more than 4 years of riding in just about everything from rain, to snow, to 100 temps, and mud, I finally needed to replace my digitalizer.  It's a cheap and quick fix and I look forward to many more years with my Zumo.

Update:  After waiting for years for my trusty 60CS to die or be stolen I finally broke down and upgraded. Now I'm rolling with a Garmin Montana 600. I find the mapping handheld units much nicer than the moto specific models. Of course I'm starting back at ground zero of the learning curve but that's half the fun.

Had a Zumo 450 a few years ago.  Would tell me I needed to turn after I just passed up said turn.  It wasn't quick enough for the job.  Sold it after a month.

When they start making 6" screens in a waterproof case and make them faster calculating, I'll get another one.  4.3" is just too small and it takes too long to try and focus on and read when my time is better spent looking ahead and staying on the road.

Got my wife a 5 incher for her car.  While a little better, more screen real estate is preferable and quicker to focus on when you only have a momet to glance at it and decipher what you see.

Just bought a Garmin Montana 600 to replace the zumo 450 that has a flaky screen. Plus it will follow tracks (for dual-sport/off-road use) which the zumo will not.

I think I'm going to try to replace the screen/digitizer on the 450 ($30) once the Montana has maps loaded and is ready to go. I can still use it on the street bike and in the car.

Stupid Garmin has different power cables for the two GPS units, so I can't easily swap GPS units between bikes.

I have the Zumo 660 on the Norge as my primary GPS and ride, and the latest TomTom Rider on Da Loanah (Honda Shadow that gets loaned out to folks from out of the country needing a bike to tour the US).

I use the .mp3 player a lot as well as the fuel warnings.  I'm tempted by the new Zumo 590LM, but I need to find one at a better than list price first.  I like the curvy road option (the TomTom has that as well, but no .mp3 player).

My second choice is Google Maps and my 3rd choice is CoPilot which has full off-line navigation capabilities, like a conventional dedicated GPS.

My Garmin StreetPilot (2720?) finally died so I got a Rage GPS from Chinavision. Since I like to dick around with gizmos and this one runs on Windows CE it is a hacker attractive unit. Some fellow in Holland developed a motorcycle oriented version of iGo software which I have loaded along with iGo Primo. Kind of a dual boot option. The hardware is pretty substantial and of course the price was low. Shipping took a while direct from overseas but within the given time frame and not unreasonable.

I have a Windows 8 phone with a 6" screen and use the Microsoft Here Drive+ app. Typically I have an idea where I am going so looking at a GPS screen is not important too me. The phone is usually in my tank back and is connected to a set of Plugfones so I can listen to music. The Here Drive+ will cut in and give me voice directions as I near a turn, or specific area.

Very happy with my Montana. Great secure mount and solid power connection. Very customizable. I came off a Nuvi 550 and previous to that a 60 CSX, which I loved. The 60 was great, but the screen too small for my eyes. The Montana is more like the 60 than the Nuvi. I don't route except in large cities and does fine.  But I do download and follow tracks off-road and the Montana handles these well. Great screen in sunlight and can be used as a bulky handheld with pretty good battery (rechargeable and AA) life. I use an iPhone on my bicycle for bulk savings. The sunlight on screen is poor. But I prefer the dedicated GPS for travel.

I use a Garmin Zumo and I'm quite satisfied with it  Thumbsup


I have the old one, the 220.  I love it if only the on/off button still worked (famous drop problem) and the display was a tad larger.

I'd buy a new one if it wasn't so expensive.

Magellan: RoadMate.   Only one I could find that still has a headphone jack or at least the model I found did. Pretty sure all Magellan's don't.
