It's about time they came out with a motorcycle GPS that was afordable.. At $600, I figure they'll be available for a touch under $500 in a few months..

Hype! Yes, it has huge icons for easier use, but that's just a quick software thing. It's just another GPS where they take the foo foo options away from the more expensive models that aren't selling enough. Do the comparison on Garmin site with the other Zumo's and you'll easily see what they took out. Most won't matter so it's a better deal then the $200 next step up if all you need is the mapping. Amazes me that they even bother with 4:3 screens anymore. It's all a scam really. Add $20 worth of options and charge $200. Look the $200 jump from the 660 to the 665 just for the xm receiver. It's all about the options and how bad do you want that extra feature you might use a whole 2 times.

Doesnt the Zumo 600 list for the same price? I have a 550 and paid under 600 over a year ago. I bet they could be had a little cheaper by now. Ooops just looked a 550 is 613.00 and 660 is 624.00.

You start with a full bag of luck and an empty bag of experience. Hopefully you fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.
