What gps do you use? made for car or motorcycle?? What brands maps are the most useless
You should probably look for the most useful maps rather than the most useless.
Garmin 60cx. I wish it had a larger screen. Other than that, it's great.
Used a few garmins in the past, but in the end decided they sucked the fun out my trips.
+1 and +1.
I'm using Garmin 60CSx for cycling and motorcycling. Tough built and big screen. I also looking at Zumo 660 or BMW GPS once my budget permits
Garmin Zumo 450, III, & 38.
Zumo 550. Use whatever the latest downloaded maps are. I have a life-time subscription for my gps.
Very happy with it. It's been in all 48 lower states and taken me right to the door of some friends' houses in various parts of the country.
Oregon 300. Go to the GPS area and you'll be wallowing in information.
Streetpilot 2820 makes me happy.
Garmin Zumo 550
My 60Cx is probably the best consumer electronics purchase I've made in my life. I'm going on a thousand hours of use with the thing and it just keeps on ticking. I'm simply amazed how much functionality is packed into this unit. I've had it strapped to six or seven different bikes now.
Zumo 550, Great screen very easy to read in daylight and has IMO better maps than tomtom go 920.
Really expensive to buy, and then add the even more expensive touratech lock! I use it in my car, 950 ADV, CRF 450, and Polaris 500 sportsman. So one GPS for all and it works great.
Refurb Garmin 2610. It was cheap and still works great. I'd love a Zumo when I upgrade for the Bluetooth connectivity and media player.
I have 5+ years on my Garmin 276C. It has never had a problem and does what I want from a GPS. Superior product!
zumo 550 with GXM. One of the best things I ever bought for a bike.
I have a Zumo 450 which I really like. Easy to use and very useful, it has improved the quality of my rides. The standard preloaded road map of <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comffice:smarttags" /><st1lace>North America</st1lace> is great.
There is a learning curve to using these things though. I think I had my Zumo nearly a month before I realized how useful it was.
Zumo 660. Interface could still be better, but is an improvement on other versions. Had one that broke, which was replaced under warranty. No troubles since. Comes with car kit for free. As a bonus, the Mp3 player functionality makes for a tolerable camp stereo if you don't have a netbook/mp3 player/similar with you.
The interface on the Tomtom Rider series are better, but the cradles are useless and even the MK2/3 ones will wear out in no time if you do any serious amounts of mileage, even when attaching them using RAM mounts, even if you only do tarmac. Take it on the dirt and it'll be ruined in no time.
The 276C is tiptop!
