    At $650 and $800 before discount, the prices of these units are still way above other GPS units. Even for HD, these prices are pretty high. OK, you do get the icon of the little motorcycle and a quick menu to all the HD dealers (something you can add to most Garmin units), but the HD Zumo units are virtually identical to what you can get a BestBuy for $300 that also includes XM weather, not to mention the less expensive units for under $100 or the dozens of GPS phone apps…

    The $40 fairing mounting hardware is worth it though and can be modified for most GPS units.

    Got to agree with Toby why would you spend 3x as much ? Because it says HD and has a bar and shield? If I was to by a Garmin I would by it elsewhere and put those hundreds to use elsewhere . How can the company justify 300% over retail just because it has there name? A $25 mount doesn’t really justify the extra cost either.

    I have a 660 and there are many differences. It is set to handle the vibrations from the bikes, it’s waterproof, it can also sense your finger thru gloves. It comes with a harness to wire it directly to your bike’s power and input to the radio. It comes with a 112V house charger, 12V car charger, car suction cup mount, the motorcycle cradle, a carrying case, and a few other items. But the other big one is the pc software (Map Source) that allows you to preplot your trip and then download to the GPS.

    I resisted buying a GPS for years, but I love this thing. It has found me so many great places.

    Further, the HD unit is the same price and has the same pieces as the BMW unit.

    Not to knock the specific to bike GPS brands… If I had the coin I would p/u a Garmin Zumo
    But being what I have. Cheap Garmin $ 100…. Works good enough to get me back home and has went through stormy weather and vibrations and the sucker still works..
    lare is the only issue I get.. But for the coin… I can deal with it. Its not like I’m freaking staring at the sucker all the time.

    Been using a Garmin from Best Buy for years. Works great and gets me to where I want to go. Starts raining, just throw a condom over the damn thing and it is waterproof. Zumo overpriced.

    Harley “Road Tech” and Garmin Zumo both have the same list price. Harley used to be over $300 more, but I guess they became realistic. The Zumo units do have substantial additional environmental (weather and vibration) protection, and also have different mounting systems. I have used Garmins in the car(s) for years, and would not suggest continual usage of the Nuvi models on a bike. The Harley/Road Tech model also can integrate easier into the Harley radio systems with the Navigation Interface Module (NIM). There’s quite a bit of lore out there on integration also.
