... Most car sat nav systems aren’t bike compatible (I say most because you can buy a bike mount for the Garmin 2610 but it has many limitations) so a specific unit is required. Whilst there are loads of sat nav units for cars giving a large range of choice to suit all budgets and tastes, ... Read review

"In 50m please turn left"

AdvantagesCan be used with a gloved hand, easy to install, uses Mapsource

DisadvantagesDoesn't come with BT headset, display a bit wobbly, expensive

"...a bike mount for the Garmin 2610 but it has many limitations) so a specific unit is required. Whilst there are loads of sat nav units for cars giving a large range of choice to suit all budgets and tastes, the same cannot be said for bike sat nav units. Basically, there are two to choose from: The TomTom Rider or the Garmin Zumo 550. ****The box**** The Zumo comes in a box measuring 29 cm x 20 cm x 14 cm with a photograph of the Zumo on it. ..."

Garmin always in the Lead

AdvantagesVery "customizable"

DisadvantagesBit pricy compared to similar

"The good: The Zumo 550 provides text- and voice-guided directions to motorcyclists the unit has a built-in MP3 player and integrated Bluetooth for hands-free calling (works great with Bluetooth helmet). The interchangeable faceplates give you some customization options to fit the look of your bike or car. The unit is waterproof so river crossings and rain will not stop you from finding your way. The touch screen can be optimized to suit your ..." Read review

Quick review of Garmin zumo 550

"Zumo is the best, yes, I know it's expensive but if you've got a motorbike and a car you can use it in both with easy motocycle and car mount. It's got touch screen display so can use easily while on the move even with your gloves on. You can look up addresses with post-code. It's waterproof with bluetooth. And it's MP3 player as well. Map software is very clear with preloaded safety camera alerts. However you need to update the map from time to time but it's easy to do on-line. I'm recommended to all of you if you're looking for relabel device.

Advantageswaterproof, compact, easy to use wint gloves

Disadvantagespoor speaker quality

"I have owned this sat nav for over a Year Now.. As a biker I can not imagine better one, waterproof, easy to use with gloves, visible... trip to Nord Capp was just a peace of mind :) Great function of amount of petrol left in tank, specialy in bikes with no fuel gage (like my gsxr), and lots of other usable functions. For car... sound comming from speaker mounted in sat nav holder isn't perfect, but it's clear enaugh. Speeding camera warnings ..." Read review
