    The 660 for $309?? That's a darn good price. Whether you use the Bluetooth or not, it's waterproof. You can get caught in a rainstorm and not have to worry about it. Also check and see if it has free upgrades for maps. That in itself is worth a mint. It will cost you at least a hundred bucks every time you upgrade the 550's maps. They really need upgraded every year. Don't ask me how I know.

    So yes, it's worth the money. Just shop around and make sure you can't get it cheaper somewhere else.

    JMO for what it's worth...I use a regular auto style Garmin (NUVI 52). It has a large 5 inch screen. I built a nice rain cover from a $3.99 5X6 index card box. The Garmin cost $69 at the exchange at Fort Jackson. It has free map upgrades, I can see it pretty good in the day/sun light. I would like to have the Tom Tom Rider but the price of the motorcycle Garmins/Tom Toms is simply too much for some of us.

    I really like my 350LM Zumo. I used the Zumo bar mount that came with it and hooked it up to the accessory panel on the trike. With the push of one button it goes to my pocket at stops. Although expensive, it's a great unit. Anyone had experience with the factory GPS in a GW? When I can't ride my Harley anymore I'll sell it and be looking for a relative new trike with low miles, then the wife and I both can be full time bar holders. Guess who will be riding the newer trike?

    If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
