Garmin Zumo 665 Problems

I have the Zumo 665 GPS with the handlebar mount. I have used it on 2 trips, one in the car and today on my FLTRU. On both trips, the device would freeze up and not give any voice or map prompts or would shut down all together. Not a good thing when navigating Washington DC! Has anyone else experienced this?

I have the Harley Zumo 665 and "knock on wood" haven't had any problems. Mine is mounted with the Iron Aces Mount and I love it. I have the Antenna in the right glove box and the XM works just fine. Is your antenna mounted in a good place to pick up the satellites? That may be a cause, if your losing a signal, the system may freeze. Check with Garmin, they should be able to assist you.
Best of Luck!

I have a 660 mounted with the Harley Mount kit (Not the NIM) and have no issues at all - between the cages and bike it has better than 40k on the road. It loses the MP3/Audio book player now and again but that still navigates. Are your maps on the internal drive or the external SD card??
