Got a Magellan with a 4" screen for around $60 at Sports Authority. It works.  Bigsmile

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.

My global positioning system is finding my position on a paper map. The battery never goes dead, doesn't depend on satellites, and has never failed me.

I'll go ahead and add to this even as late to the party as I am  Lol

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).

I use my android phone.  Depending on where I'm going, what I'm doing etc I either use Waze (most often - because in many states it is VERY good at pinpointing police, accidents, slow-downs etc.
My second choice is Google Maps and my 3rd choice is CoPilot which has full off-line navigation capabilities, like a conventional dedicated GPS.

I use my bike gps, Garmin 810.  Love how compact it is but still can read the screen.  Usually get a whole day of riding it with out losing charge.  Can charge while riding if need be.

My Nuvi 350LM I use in my car is dying, so I started using Waze on my android phone. It works pretty slick, but I haven't tried it on the bike.

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.

If you're using a GPS on a motorcycle you're doing it wrong.

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.
