A good GPS, just not as user friendly as the Zumo 550

The best and most complete routing solution for road motorcycling. But complete does mean complex. The benefit of the wider screen is cancelled out by the edges being taken up by the touch sensitive icons hidden in the clutter of the map. Data areas are also smaller and harder to read while riding. Mount is easier to use but non-locking. Mostly I miss having the big speedometer screen and easy to reset gas guage of older models.
GPS functions are great and interface with mapping software works well. Really nice to have a user replaceable battery. Display needs to be shaded from glare and moved closer for easy reading while riding.
Yes, I recommend this product.
