Ok so call me Mr Money bags but I splashed out on a Garmin Zumo 660.

It’s not cheapest on the market but it’s fully waterproof clips into its own holder which has a waterproof cover for when the satnav’s not in the mount. It’s hard wired none of that Crapy Blue tooth to deal with.

My mate Chris has the TomTom rideer2 and just about every other time we go out he has to feck about with the blue tooth. Most times he loses the sound, you cannot alter anything on the Rider2 when your moving, not that I would recommend it but some times you just need to turn something up or down an the motorway. I did not fancy stopping just to turn up the MP3 player.

I have a simple role I like: “keep it simple stupid” and having spent a lot of time looking into Satnav’s I paid my money over, so far and I have done 844 miles in four days I am quite happy.

See review of the Garmin Zumo 660

I went to http://www.satnaveasy.co.uk/ if you want I have a £5.00 off, it’s yours if you want to go to them they do TomTom as well. They are very easy to deal with and very fast.

Hope this helps.

Just bought the wife a Tomtom XL Europe, and even she can use it. Just put in her sister's new address in Chesterfield & off she toddled, got there nae bother. However, the mount is a bit sh1t and has packed up after two uses-just falls off the screen. Got to take it back to Halfrauds to see what they have to say about it. As others have said, Tomtom all the way for me unless you're buying bike specific, in which case Garmin may have more to offer. From what I've read though they're a bit of a faff uploading routes?
