I had my Garmin Zumo 550 for nearly two years. I bought it because it was top of the range motorcycle sat nav. What i liked about it: whole Europe covered, shock and waterproof, quick and easy to use(don't have to take gloves off), loads of extras( fuel gauge,avg speed,compass, useful information like garages, petrol stations, hotels etc,mp3 player, Bluetooth, not bad memory capacity,speed cameras alerts.
What i disliked about it : after 1 hour motorway ride in rain it stopped working,but surprisingly it was mounting bracket not sat nav itself which got wet.Sometimes bit slow I used to miss turn awaiting for navigation to recalculate route.Little bit tricky to supply power from motorbike - no instructions for DIY.
After all i think it's good navigator but a little bit pricey.
