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!!

The Zumo is a great motorcycle GPS but it does have its flaws. The first thing you\'ll notice is that the Zumo doesn\'t come with a printed users guide. Garmin expects you to download the PDF version. It was easy to find on-line and this approach is...
