Great Garmin for Motorcycles!!

 

Took less than 1\/2 hour to have a custom twisty-turny route created on my computer. Downloaded onto my new Garmin Zumo 220 in a few seconds. Took the bike out the next day and had a blast for 5 hours following the route I made!!

Easy to set up and more esthetically pleasing when mounted than I expected. Very pleased with the ease of setup and the direct wiring harness provided. Controls are very \'Garmin\' and if you have ever used a Garmin you should have no trouble...
