Garmin Zumo 550 - A Great Motorbike GPS Device
There are only two GPS units specifically manufactured to be used on motorcycles. The Garmin Zumo 550 is one such device and is an excellent choice if you are looking for a GPS for your bike. It ships with a great looking silver shell and you can purchase other shells in different colors if you so choose.
A part from the GPS unit, inside the packet there is: a motorcycle mount, a car mount, an AC charger, a tiny screwdriver for the "safety screw" on the unit, a motorcycle power cable connecting to the bike's battery, a car charger, black plastic faceplates and tools needed to mount the Zumo to motorcycle handlebars.

That is not all. There is a electronic copy of the owner manual on CD, a USB cable that you use to connect to a computer and internet to download updates and new maps, a City Navigator DVD and a guide that helps you to start using the GPS device straight out of the box.
The only thing lacking is a Bluetooth earpiece for the helmet. However, with so many other things included with the unit, this is not as much as a problem as it first appears. Also, there are quite a number of Bluetooth-integrated helmets and standalone earpieces for helmets that you can buy at a reasonable price.
There are two options for mounting the Garmin Zumo 550 to a motorcycle: a u-bolt mount or a clutch mount. The unit is compressed, measuring 4.8 inches wide, 3.9 inches high, and 1.6 inches deep and weighing 10.6 ounces - a hair lighter than the TomTom Rider's 10.9 ounces.
The device can be placed under water for a maximum of 30 minutes without any ill effects and you can choose to have either large or small icons displayed on the screen, depending on your eye sight and the distance from your handlebars and your eyes.
Some say that the Garmin Zumo should only be used on a motorcycle but it's just as effective in the car. The unit is placed at eye level on the dash and therefore there is no need to take your eyes off the road at all.
The Zumo 550's screen is UV resistant, measures 3.5 inches in a diagonal line, has a white backlight and is 320 by 420 pixels. As far as motorcycle GPS units go, the Garmin Zumo 550 is one of the best money can buy.
