Great GPS! Ultimately worth the money.
I have tried multiple solutions for getting a GPS on my bike. None of which were a legit, designed for a motorcycle solution. Really because I'm a bit of a penny pincher, so it was hard to justify the cost of this unit. Every other solution honestly just sucked. Frustration after frustration. So I bit the bullet and ponied up the pennies for this bad boy, and I am so glad I did. Installation was a breeze. No kidding, like 15 minutes. Most of that was taking of the front fairing and lifting the tank to route the cable. The unit works great, flawlessly integrated with my bluetooth unit. Glove friendly. Love it!

Be careful of the mount.
Let me start by saying I have had a couple of Garmin units for my cars, but this was the first one for a motorcycle.
The gps works great and the install was easy enough, my problem is the locking mechanism. From day one it wouldn't lock completely when the unit was put in the cradle. I would have to push down on the corner of the lock to make it seat all the way. Not a big deal until this morning, during rush hour, when I went over a seam in the highway at 45 mph and the unit popped out, hit my leg then bounced off the road and slid to a stop.
Good news is it still works with only cosmetic scratches on the case. I still buy the gps if I had to do it over again but now I'm looking into buying a stronger mount that will keep it from happening again.

Opinion from Johnny foreigner
Do not be misled with the fact that I am old, bald, bitter and twisted and the ultimate horror, British.
Well, technology has not escaped the European and I (and my wife) have this model installed on our respective bikes - Road King Classic (2015), Fat Bob (2013), Fat Boy (2013) and Heritage Softail Classic (2000).
Well, unlike the USA, the roads in UK are crowded, badly signed and with narrow twisty roads and getting to destination is not always simple. Because Motorways - your Interstate roads - are fast and congested, choosing the correct lane is probably the feature that I like most of all. We do not have the sheer vastness of the USA, but we compact the difficulty into a tiny space.
Buy it - set it up and it will look after you.

Seems a good quality product
Still not had the chance to use in a trip!
Seems to be a good product, but I don`t have enough millage to judge.
As usual, parcel was delivered in time by our friends from RevZilla!

Good, but $699?
I was using my old Nuvi 850 on my K1200LT. Obviously this was an upgrade as far as weatherproofing and bike specific. Other than Bluetooth I do not see any big features since I purchased my Nuvi 10 years ago. I was hoping for some additions that would make me feel I got my money's worth, not there. I would recommend only because it does seem durable and the best bike specific GPS, but not worth $700.

Awesome motorcycle specific GPS with Garmin Base Camp
Love this GPS. Revzilla was fast ship and easy to deal with. GPS is awesome. Allows me to program exact routes on my laptop with Garmin Base Camp software and then transfer to the GPS. Installation was a snap, with quick wiring to the battery and mounting to the bars. This GPS charges while in the cradel, except when the bike is off it doesn't charge so you don't have to worry about draining the battery. Well worth the investment.

If you have a motorcycle, you want the Garmin Zumo 660LM
Traveling on my KTM 990 Adventure R just got a whole bunch better with my recent purchase of a Garmin Zumo 660LM. It allows me to know exactly where I am, gets me to where I'm going and gets me home no matter how lost I try to get! Not only do I get to see where I am on Garmin's excellent large screen, but with my Sena Bluetooth communications headset I also get to receive verbal driving instructions along with listening to music and receiving phone calls from my iPhone. I couldn't be any happier with both the Garmin and Sena combination, both purchased through RevZilla!
