I have the 660 with NIM. I love it. Voice commands interrupt any music playing. No problems with touch screen sensitivity. The only difference between the 660 and the 665 is the XM. Though XM would be nice - I have the radio, an iPod, the CD (and MP3), and can use SD cards in the 660. So, I don't need another XM subscription (have 2 already). I was in some pretty serious rain the other day and had no issues with the 660.

I have a 660 and wished I had the 665 for the xm weather. It would be very useful when traveling. Xm radio is ok but I have plenty of music options.

I have the 665, and use the heck out of the XM, and I like the weather as well.

That said, I would have preferred to have the XM in the head unit instead of having the cable into the aux jack. But not for the price Harley wants.

I have a HD Zumo 660 and would rate is as "fair". I like the fact that it interfaces with the advanced audio system, but it's way expensive for pretty old technology and the Nav interface is expensive, too.

The screen's brightness is marginal in direct sunlight. HD/Garmin has not kept Bluetooth drivers current for cellphones (won't interface with my Motorola Droid 2 which has been on the market for 2+ years).

I haven't had an issue with the touch screen, however.

I'd shop elsewhere if I had it to do all over again.

I see this thread is 2 years old. Has there bee. Any improvements on the 660 by now? I have xm on the bike so I dont need the 665. My 550 just died and looking for a replacement.

2012 CVO Roadglide Custom in Candy Cobalt/Twilight Blue, and it is almost completely stock. :0)))))
Mods are: Fullsac 1-3/4" baffles, Ohlins 6's (HD357), color matched chopped tour pack. Bluetooth stereo with Arc Audio amp and Focal speakers. On the bucket list; Ohlins drop in fork cartridges and the install of Fuel Moto catless 212 SS headpipe

I have been using the 660 for 4 years. I had the "regular" 660 on my previous bike and have the Harley version on this bike so it will interface with the stereo. It's definitely waterproof and I have no sun glare issues. After dealing with a couple other mount options, I gave up and went with the Harley handlebar mount. Now that it's adjusted to the right angle, no issues.

Unless you get the NIM module, (Navigation Interface Module) you will only hear directions if you are in Aux mode on the head unit. The NIM will interrupt any audio source and give you the directions through the speakers.
Say you don't have the NIM, and have the zumo plugged in to the aux jack on the head unit, and you're listening to music from the zumo's mp3 player. Will the zumo switch internally and cut off the music and give you voice directions when needed, then back to mp3 music? Or does it stay in only mp3 and you don't get any voice directions unless you turn off the mp3?

It will stop the music for the turn prompts and then return to the music.
