Gone old school... I use a suction mounted Garmin i2
Works like a charm... only steers me wrong once every 50 miles

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!

Passport iQ which also functions with radar. However, I'm still seaching for a mount for it.

Maybe it's because I am excessively cheap, but I use the GPS on my cell phone that I have mounted.

Street Pilot 2610

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.

Last month I bought a Nuvi 1450 LMT for the car, and I bought the corresponding RAM mount and cradle for use on the bike, though I have yet to use it on the bike.

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.
