or if you want to simplify and will never go back to a nav
Thanks everyomne. I ended up buying the Zumo XT from Amazon so it will arrive next day. The Navigator 6 went back to Garmin to be replaced with another "recertified" unit. For the life of me, I don't know why they don't just replace with a known working uniy=t like the upgraded one. They go through a lot of these.
It's a phone app. From what I understand, because it uses a lot of battery power, your phone has to be connected to the battery pigtail while using it. I've never used it. I had a 660LM, Garmin's version of the Navigator. It was not reliable even with a reset and the newest maps uploaded. I also am not a fan of Basecamp. The original simple MapSource with my Zumo 550 were absolutely the best. Never had an issue. But that was 15 years ago.
I bought an adapter plate to be able to use the zumo XT in the stock mount on the bike. Works great. Highly recommend the unit. The only thing I really miss is using the wunder wheel for zooming the map. That’s the only issue I have with using the zumo. I guess also the menus are a little different and finding POI on the route take a few more clicks but it’s something you get used to.
I had a TomTom 550 for about 3 years. It had some good points like not using Garmin Basecamp, but then the screen went. Same with Fred Montano.
if you want a motorcycle GPS then the only one is the Garmin XT. Check my review in Feb 2022 newsletter.
the only other option is to go with a phone based app. I personally can’t recommend one - no personal experience . There is the BMW Motorad Connected Ride but check out Aug 2022 newsletter before deciding.
I am using a garmin XT right now
can the Navigator 6 be replaced by anything else and have it tie into the system?
Of course just in time for the ROL my gps went berserk. I need a reliable unit to follow. Suggestions please.
I can't trust Garmin.
