    Will mount the GPS, power it, and will have a RAM ball on the back for you to place on the bike. Still need to have a RAM arm and a ball mounted somewhere on the front of your bike.



    I also bought this mount, which will power the GPS and mount it on the windshield of my truck. Going to give my normal car GPS to my wife, as she doesn't have one. Figure this way I'll get the most use out of my Montana and get used to it quicker.

    For maps I just bought the regular City-Nav North America NT.

    Did you look through the vendor's thread? If I'm not mistaken, there was a thread in there that listed discounts and coupon codes.

    I just picked up a 590LM "newly overhauled" aka factory reconditioned for $450 shipped from gpscity.com. It carries a full factory warranty & was $94 cheaper than a "new" unit. Anyway, these come in from time to time and they show up on their website without any warning so you have to check the website frequently.

    The GPSMAP 64s is now $199 @ GPS City.

    http://www.gpscity.com/garmin-gpsmap-64s.html

    I had a $50 gift card for REI and was really considering using it toward a GPS, but their pricing is more or less $50 more than most other places anyway so... yeah. Had been contemplating other used models as well as the 64 series, but when I saw it on sale I pulled the trigger. I'm coming from an eTrex Legend HC, which I love and has been great, but it was time to upgrade. Hopefully this model is a justifiable improvement!

    Most of you probably know this, but GPS City has been good to ADV Riders with a discount on RAM Mounts. I always order RAM stuff through them regardless, as their pricing tends to be the best no matter how hard I look, and their customer service has always been great in my personal (and I'm sure many others) experience.

    Good info. I like GPSCity and would prefer to order from them, if I were in the market. Right now, I have my Nav V and Montana for the bikes, so don't need another one, but figured people would want to know.

    If I had a non-BMW, I would be all over the 595LM. Since the BMWs have the wunderwheel now, I think that the Nav V and impending Nav VI are the way to go for BMWs.

    Me too. I run my Nav V on all my bikes.

    The wunderwheel and factory GPS mount location on the GS,GSA,RT,GT,GTL is perfect in my mind.

    For pure bike use The 395LM @ $400 becomes very compelling compared to the Montana when you consider it includes city navigator and lifetime updates. you'd be near $500 to get a montana with both.

    Ignore Amazon. Read up on those units here on this site. There are some big threads on them. The 595 is just about state-of-the-art for moto GPS. If I didn't have a BMW that integrates with the Nav V, I would have a 595.

    GARMIN 395LM......$400
    Sounds decent enough. Anybody use South America maps on this unit? Deal or no deal for a motorcycle specific Nav?

    I used maps for Costa Rica on an old Nuvi so no reason SA maps wouldn't work on the 395.

    I downloaded and then installed onto the sd card in the Nuvi. Any Garmin compatible map will work fine.
