In case anyone is in the market for one.. I just picked up an XT for $399 plus tax, shipping included. This will be my 1st GPS unit as I've always used my phone. It will be a learning curve for sure.
You're going to love it. XT was my first GPS as well and it works great. Learning curve is Basecamp.In case anyone is in the market for one.. I just picked up an XT for $399 plus tax, shipping included. This will be my 1st GPS unit as I've always used my phone. It will be a learning curve for sure.
I use a heavy duty ball mount that reuses the clutch bolts. Solid as a rock and positions GPS high enough that eyes stay close to road and low enough to not be in line of sight.Where is that mounting point??
I'm gunna either use the Kawasaki mount or handle bar mount, undecided.
Ok, I'm going to throw out a question that I'm surprised no one asked yet. Why the change to GPS over Cell Phone with Google Maps and or Waze? Other than the obvious cell coverage ... what's the advantage? Normally have the phone with me... why not use? I have an older Garmin Zumo but mostly keep it in the drawer now. Someone tell me to get it back out...lol.
That's a good price for a Garmin Zumo. When I got mine a few years ago it came with the motorcycle mount included that uses the brake master cylinder mounting bolts mentioned above, looks rugged to me, so far no problems, almost eye level for me too. Initially, I did not like it, there are still some gripes I have about the whole GPS way of doing things, it still is only a reference for me as I still carry paper maps.
BTW, with so many people using their cell phones, GPS units are showing up at resale and Goodwill stores for some great prices. I got 2 practically new units with chargers that are both under 5 years old for $5 and $7.
