Our Comment

The zūmo 660 from Garmin has been around several years now and it is, in our opinion, the very best of all the motorcycle GPS systems.

It is offered with Free Lifetime Maps so no more map update purchases.

Over the last few years we have sold a lot of 660s and in spite of our inclement weather at times these units are trouble free and we have no issues to report with them.

The nüvi 1490t, much like the other members of the nüvi 1xxx series, boasts the new feature of enhanced pedestrian mode which can be used with the optional cityXplorer maps.  

Note the cityXplorer maps do not come preloaded on any of the nüvi 1xxx series.  They can only be obtained as a download from the Garmin website at an additional cost.
