I've been using a Zumo 660 for the last several years as a replacement for my old Nuvi550, which became too old and saddle sore.
So far, it's held up very well. The only complaint I have is the display, which is very dim even at it's brightest setting. I've read many similar complaints, but many others are pleased with the brightness, so I'm guessing there may have been some batches with dim displays that got past quality control.
Still, it works well enough for my purposes.
Whatever you get, a good quality mounting system should be used. I'm a big fan of RAM mounts.
I use my Galaxy S7 as a backup GPS. It's not waterproof nor glove sensitive, so it will remain a backup for the time being. It's on a RAM mount, too. (I'm considering ordering a waterproof case that has a glove sensitive screen.) My GPS app is CoPilot.
Between the two, one covers for the weaknesses of the other, so I like to have both on hand.
I don't need a compass to know which way the wind shines.
Pray, Hope, and Don't Worry.
