    If you have this GPS please leave any comments you have about it below.

    Once you start using a GPS on your motorcycle you’ll wonder how you ever got along without it. Although this GPS  isn’t specifically designed for a motorcycle lots of bikers use them that aren’t. Once you see what they want for one that is you’ll know why.  The main reason why it’s not listed for a motorcycle is that it’s not waterproof.  But you don’t necessarily need water proof. After reading a few post in the biker forums I learned that they just put a baggy over it and it works just fine.

    Lets face it. This GPS is only $87.99 which includes shipping. If you want a GPS listed for motorcycles you can expect to pay upwards of $400.00. For that kind of money I’ll just use the baggy. Besides who likes driving in the rain anyway.

      I have the Garmin 265 WT, which is the same with the exception, the “W” is slightly wider than the plain “T” model. GPS unit works great except kind of hard to see in bright daylight. The Bluetooth feature is nice, but kind of hard to hear phone calls while riding. RAM makes a nice universal motorcycle mount. I would recommend getting one from GPSCity. DO NOT order from Lidomounts, they will take your money, and screw you over. No customer support! Price is only $35.00, and if you also want the direct wiring harness, that will cost you another $20.00. Well worth it instead of cigarette plug.

      Charlie,
      Thanks for your input. We hear about great deals and want to be able to pass on that kind of info to our Thunder Riders, but input from people that actually have used the equipment is invaluable. Lulu
