I am looking for a GPS to mount on the handlebar of my 900 Classic. I tried the search, but it said to try a different term. What else could I try besides GPS?

Anyways, what GPS do you guys have and what can you say good or bad about them?

Thanks :)

I use an el-cheap-o GPS that was sitting in my closet, otherwise, my iPhone. I bought the TomTom App, and I plug it into my helmets headset (or into the Nady 'box' that connects my Fiancee and I when we're both riding) and just listen for the turn-by-turn and leave it in my pocket.

I use the same Garmin that I use in my car and work truck. Still putting along. You just need the right mount. And a place to plug it in!

I got a Garmin Nuvi 755. I wanted one that I could program specific routes instead of letting it pick one for me because I often like to avoid cities and major highways or travel and some smaller, more scenic, roads that it would never select for me. Only thing I don't like is the display can be hard to see in bright sunlight but that's probably true of all GPS units.

I use a Garmin 1450 LMT.
It's in a "weatherproof case" and mount.
The 5" screen is easier to see in the sunlight and the features it has are pretty neat.

Garmin Zumo 220.

You can plan routes on your computer and download them to the GPS. It's 100% waterproof. Works fine while wearing gloves. Includes bluetooth connectivity. Comes with a very sturdy RAM mount and a motorcycle power adapter. Also includes stuff to use it in your car.

More expensive than others, but I think it's worth it.

It was $59 for US and Canada, works very well as long as you don't accept a phone call. I also us it in my car as well. You can get US only maps for $49. Traffic is extra.

For my GPS, I have a Rand McNally and a Dry Erase Marker - Figure out where I want to go, look at Rand, decide on a route, write the route on Windshield with Marker and go . . . Never let me down yet . . . Total cost about 10 bucks . . .

Garmin Nuvi 360. It has all the whistles and bells one needs. Ram mounts used to secure it on bike!
