Found 1st May 2010
As it say's I need some advice please, we are looking to get a sat nav for our bikes for western Europe and UK and whilst we have Tom Tom in the car and like the way it works have been guided towards Garmin for the bike, what do other bikers think please? And any recommendations on where to buy? Thanks in advance.

My brother uses a Garmin on his bike and reckons it's really good. He's normally pretty "geographically challenged" but manages to find his way pretty much everywhere now.
He paid shed-loads for it at the Bike Show though - muppet.

Ah, no can do, Harley Davidsons, so we have windscreens (I know, I know, wimps)

Try this when it gets released:

My dads a biker and he says biker sat navs cost an arm and a leg - I reckon they just think thatr bikers should be navigation-savvy!

This month a test is done between the Tom Tom and the Garmin in Bike Magazine with the Garmin being the best :thumbsup:

I bought the navigo from wh smith and put Tom Tom on. Unfortunately can't see the screen for glare when its on the bike.
