The Montana is intuitive, huge screen for aging eyes, wireless track and route sharing that was easy-peasy to figure out in a motel room the night before our start (and in spite of copious amounts of alcohol). Tremendous capacity for routes and tracks. Maps can be had free on gpsfileexchange. Easy to hard wire to the bike.

It's installed on my 800GS with a RAM mount - pennies compared to the TT mount, and adequate for a bike that won't ever see single-track.

My Nuvi has been relegated to use in the truck, and my trusty 60CSx will be for day rides on the 450. The Montana is lead bitch in the GPS harem.

Just MHO, which I felt compelled to share.
I bought the Garmin Zumo 350 LM. It was preloaded with U.S., Canada, Mexico, and several island maps. It has Lifetime Maps, and free software upgrades. Came with a RAM mount for motorcycles, which I most likely won't use. It does tracks,has bluetooth (I probably won't ever use), has mileage service intervals for motorcycle related maintenance items, and many other things. The coolest part is it was free ! ! ! I had accumulated enough points on my Cabela's card that it didn't cost me any out of pocket cash.
