I have looked at those (online anyway). I would like to have one - seems pretty cool.

Give an update how you like it.

Did you buy new or used?

I have a Tom Tom in my cage.. Worst GPS I ever used... My Cell Phone does a beter job (and even then its not that accurate). The maps give locations that are way off... My house is on the other side of town according to Tom Tom tom.. at least my phone says I should be next door.

I use the Garmin nuvi myself. Got a ball mount that fits the handle bars off e-bay. I love the fact that I can just ride whatever road looks good for hours in the GA/NC/TN mountains and when I see the sun starting to get low to hit the "go home" button and have it point the way.

Usually I half way know the way home but not always the shortest route after several hours in the twisties.

Remember, Most GPS units allow you to select routes that avoid the interstate if you prefer to stay off the super slab.

I had a Tom Tom in my car about 6 or so years ago and it was a complete POS. I lost track of the number of times it attempted to drive me through a brick wall or into a river, off a cliff, or some such nonsense. I've been using whichever Android phone I happen to have since then and have very few complaints about that.

Here's hoping your experience is better goofin.

Garmin Zumo 550 here. Tom Toms suck in comparison...(sorry)

The new Zumos are better I'm told. Mine allows Bluetooth voice prompts, MP3 downloads, phone display and maps are upgradable.
