    Garmin 2720

    Been using mine for 4 years on the bike. It's never let me down. For the current prices, I don't think you could go wrong!

    I have the 550 and use it both on the bike and in the car...works great!!
    I got my ZUMO 450 on E-bay for $ 399.50 with free shipping. I love it!!!

    Around christmas time I got a Garmin 2820 w/ GXM 30 antenna, NEW, for ~ $315 shipped from getfeetwet.com. It's a great unit! A little big and hard to find a place to mount on my strapped-for-space K75, buy having XM built in is a dream.

    Big time +1 on the 60cx set up above. I have used mine in day long heavy rain and its been bullet proof. Pop some lithium battries and your good to go running backlit for hours and hours on end.

    The common theme here has been Garmin. I have an old original Quest, which has outlasted 1 truck and is on it's 2nd motorcycle (one was a dual sport Honda XR400, which spent a lot of time in the desert).

    My Quest is old and doesn't have the features of the newer ones, but the point is it keeps working. I would highly recommend a Garmin, find and buy the one you can afford and has the features you want.

    I have both the Garmin 60CX and the Zumo 450.

    I love the 60 but I'm lukewarm or the Zumo.

    This link will get you to the refurb 2820 for $ 215. There is a link on that page to the 2820 w/GXM 30 antenna. I bought the 2820 last month and it does it all with bluetooth to match. Works great in the car too.

    I'm about to pull the trigger on a Nuvi 500. Amazon has them for $265. Garmin also produces an accessory package mount with a RAM ball and a direct wire kit. The Nuvi 500 is a waterproof unit, has the City Navigator NT maps for the lower 48 as well as the Topo maps. It also does multiple routes/waypoints and has a track back feature. (The Nuvi 550 has the NT maps for North America, but not the Topo maps.)

    At $265, that's a LOT cheaper than a Zumo.

    Does the 500 have a headphone jack? The 550 doesn't, so I had to return it - wouldn't connect to the Autocom. I've now got a Nuvi 760. While not waterproof, that was an easier obstacle to overcome than the headphone jack issue.

    Headphone Jack is on the mount on the 550.

    Sorry, I guess I wasn't very clear. I had a Nuvi 550, which was waterproof, but has no headphone jack. The Zumo 550 may well be different...
