A leap in function
Pros: For motorcycles, but also great for car and handheld usage; Works for geocaching
Cons: No Mac OS X support yet; Routing sometimes takes you onto very secondary roads
The best GPS I ever had, don't be fooled into thinking it's just for motorcycles, or just for navigation. Read More at Epinions.com

An interesting concept that can use some improvement
Pros: Small, Powerful, Bright display, 4+ hour battery operation. Very sensitive. Car & Bike mounts included.
Cons: Fuzzy display graphics. Poor TTS quality. Not configurable.
I still recommend the 276c over this model for the knowledgeable motorcyclist. The 550 will be better when they resolve some of the flaws. Maybe the 450? Read More at Epinions.com

One satellite short of a full constellation.
Pros: Rugged construction, bright display, good support, large POI database.
Cons: No audio while on battery, limited control over route legs.
Definitely a must have for motorcyclists needing a GPS. You can't go wrong with the Garmin name brand; they stand by their products and the support is excellent. Read More at Epinions.com
