I love my GPS. I like to explore without keeping track of the way home. I can get totally lost, and just hit home to find my way back. And when I'm on a trip, I don't have to worry about where turns are. I spend my time enjoying the scenery. It's also nice knowing if there's a hairpin turn just over that next hill.

I use the HD Ride Planner. No muss, no fuss.

I love my Zumo Harley Road Tech 665 with XM. Like American Express, "Don't leave home without it". I also like wandering around but it's very convenient, when you're not familiar with your surroundings, to hit "HOME" and get there without any problems. The added bonus is having the XM Radio playing thru my stock HD head unit providing me with all of my favorite channels. I have mine mounted with the Iron Aces Road Glide Mount. Can't beat it. Iron Aces is another great company and Forum Sponsor with Superior Customer Service. Great product too!

Underneath the video, reads the following:

"It's rugged enough and smart enough to guide you to wherever your ride might take you".

That doesn't even make sense. Why would you want to be "guided" to "wherever"? I know, I know, petty. I'm in advertising.

It's nice to see they have lifetime map updates. It is a bit pricey though.

granted, getting a new one this year, maybe the 2500 series

The GPS is just a tool. You're in charge of it and can use it any way you want to use. Why would you quote "just don"t want it to take away from stopping and asking" worry about something like that.

And it can be very handy at times for finding a gas station or restaurant or motel or campground, especially in the boondocks.
