I've been using an inexpensive Tom Tom 340 M for three years and 30K miles now. No complaints. It tells me where I am and I bet if I had a street address in heell it would tell me how to get there.
I never thought I needed one but it was a gift so it's fun and something to play with

[QUOTE=Tanker2Biker; it seems the vibration sometimes causes the unit to see the plug not as a power source, but as the connection to the PC (which it is when it is plugged into the PC).

I have this same problem with my older Garmin. I found through trial and error that if I use velcro to secure the power cable to the handlebar, right of the gps unit, that eliminates this little quirk.

Thanks for the tip, I'll look into it.

Thanks all for the info.
It seems that most of you feel like I do. I was more impressed with what the Garmens offer. I had not heard of the Zuma but I'll check it out. I think that I'll take the advise and try to find a place to play with some.

THANKS AGAIN ALL.

P.S. I have a woman but that is why I'm listening to my Ipad when we ride
