I haven't seen anything that even close so I bought a 2nd 478 from an inmate five minutes after he posted it.

By the way, I currently own a 378, NUVI 550, Montana 600. I had so many of them before I can't remeber now.

Most important thing for a dual sport is track management ( idealy 50 tracks of 20000 points) since many roads on topo maps does no exists anymore. Routing is simply too unreliable.

Second most important thing is screens size.

Topo Maps reading on Zumo Style GPS is also totaly uggly.

I did some research and found that on the 3.6 update for the 640 you can now use topo maps in marine mode. Honestly that's a huge deal for those of us that want to use it on a bike. My dad gave me a 640 he was not using. I'm going to do the update and see how it works. As far as I know city Nav is still not on the marine version but I can live with that. If I need to nav around a city I will just boot it into Auto mode.

Upload a custom made route from Mapsource. See if it recalculates it.

If you are doing it in marine mode it cant since there is no city map data in there I think. I will check it out this weekend and make a fun route.

Direct vs routing route

If it's a direct route you don't need a map.

If it's an auto-routing route, then yes, you need a routing compatable (read auto map) map.

A direct route kinda works like a track - straight lines from fixed point to fixed point - just not as many points. Doesn't change when you change maps... or don't have a map.
