Anyone using one of these on the KLR? How do you like it and does it show dirt and gravel roads?
thanks

I used to use a Quest and I have a buddy with a Quest 2. They're a great little unit, but remember the little part when viewing the screen. If you're getting to the point where it's hard to read a map, that tiny screen on a Quest is worse.

As far as mapping, the Quest 2 is slower than the original Quest because the entire USA takes up space, slowing down processing. On the other hand, it's faster than uploading maps.:)

My Quest wouldn't stay running, but Garmin replaced it with a new unit. I let the thing go when I got my new Goldwing because I went to a Garmin 6210 (bigger screen, more memory) and I now bounce this unit between my Wing, KLR and BMW. I just put mounts and wired all three bikes.

Thanks for the help. Yeah I want to be able to use it on a couple of bikes. I was kinda sold on the Quest till I started really lookin into it. I liked the internal battery and being waterproof. Cost is a factor so I am trying to get the best bang for the buck.

thanks again for the help

The wiring kits aren't too expensive, but the internal battery lasts a good 18 or so hours if you don't have the light on. Excellent for day riding, but if you ride at night, you're going to want to get the wiring kit for power to the unit.

I had a power cradle on my Wing, but I let it go when I traded it off for the new Wing.
