    I do not not intend to use XM. Considering a bluetooth head set, but would still like access to the mic and earphone jacks. Anyone have any slick ideas?:ear

    Thanks!

    XM isn't available on the 660. The USB connection is for a traffic receiver. The other two are for audio in and out. Mine are connected to my Autocom.

    lhendrick- thanks I will check that out....

    bombarde- thanks and noted, I thought the traffic antenna was XM based. Garmin's site say FM traffic and MSN compatible.

    I decided to bring the wires up in front of the seat, they will rest on the tank bag mount, this should protect the tank. When not needed they tuck under the seat out of site.

    The FM traffic receiver works with the bike mount and the MSN traffic receiver works with the cage mount. This is not at all clear from Garmin's info.
