"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. ..."

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.
