I have a map case on my tank bag...  Bigsmile   And Google Maps on my BlackBerry in case I get really lost.


Usually when I get really lost the "smart" phone tells me I'm roaming and refuses to help out.  Little bastard has a mind of it's own!

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.

Still using an old Garmin Quest2. Thing is beat to hell, dropped more times than I can count, survived a deer strike at 45 and keeps on going. I'll use it 'til it dies.

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.

Chose Nuvi (765) in the poll, but I really like my iPhone with the Navigon app better than my actual GPS.

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.

Zumo 550 on the bike, Nuvi 50LM for the car, but I have mounts and wiring so I can switch either in moments.

And you can't beat the screen size.  Lol

I have a few GPSes, but you can't beat a map for planning purposes.
