There is a separate subforum to post all your "Which GPS for me?" questions. Go here to post and read - GPS 101 - Which GPS For Me Before asking anyone, you need to determine how you are going to ride and then do a couple searches. Whatever you do, don't just ask without at least including the following key factors that must be considered: Are you going to ride on road, off road or both? How long will your trips be? Do you do long distance/Ironbutt riding, just commuting to work or off road/trail riding in a particular region. What kind of motorcycle do I ride and how much room is there to mount a GPS? Will I only use the GPS on the bike, or will I also use it in my cage or on foot? Is it OK for my GPS to only run off vehicle power, or will I need one that runs off batteries? I am real cheap or do I ride a KLR? Sorry, I know it’s a cheap shot, but I just couldn’t help myself Hi Pilot Where is a good place to buy GPS: There are many vendors, some more closely oriented on motorcycling, however, the following thread is probably the best place to start your research with this thread: Your Favorite Source for GPS Stuff? What is Mapsource: Mapsource is a program provided free by Garmin with all their mapping products which allows you to both communicate and move data back and forth between your GPS and PC. With Mapsource, you can work with your map products, such as City Nav or Topo USA, creating routes, waypoints, displaying and manipulating track logs from your GPS and search points of interest (POI's) in the map database.
