Faster processor, large screen makes the difference

 

If you need a GPS for a bike, GET THIS ONE! Its lack of XM, for now, is nothing because it can handle a data card 4X the size the prior generation Zumo 550 can, and the savings of the XM antenna and subscription is phenomenal. Its speed and screen size...

So fast, easy, to use, and read, makes it is a pleasure to use

I have to take off the battery door to get to the PC USB port. Just a nit

This unit can be used as a MP3 player so you don\'t need to buy the 665. This has all the bells and whistles and is great. Easy mountable parts and high screen visability. Great GPS

This is an excellant GPS

Garmin zumo 660 Motorcycle Navigator

 

Garmin GPSes are the best there is. And this is the best Garmin for a motorcycle. Comparisons made to my prior Garmin, Zumo 550.

Faster route compute speeds than Zumo 550, A2DP stereo bluetooth to helmets, single power and audio cord to the cradle. More memory than Z550, can load full US and Canada on current maps

No locking cradle like on Z550.No hard buttons like on Z550 (just touch screen)

A worthy successor to the 550

 

I bought this as an upgrade from the 550. I had used a more recent Garmin and saw the "Lane Assist" in action. Brilliant, no longer trying to read overhead signs on multi lane highways, can concentrate on driving\/riding. Also the bigger screen makes...

Better than expected from reviews

 

Wish there was a way to program a trip on computer keyboard. Have not subscribed to live traffic.

Used for motorcycle, car, walking, airplane (cross-country mode). Touch screen works great with heavy winter motorcycle gloves. No problem with weather when mounted on motorcycle with windshield- stays relatively dry. Take unit off for heavy downpour....

For long trips, Zumo directs to center of every town programmed along the way instead of bypassing them. Screen does not show current road/highway, only see name of next turn
