Got a new Zumo 550

Pretty cool little gadget! I'm new to the GPS scene, and now I can see why you vets out there really admire these things. Lots of potential for the miles ahead!

Now I gotta round up another base and cradle to mount to my Bandit, as the OEM system is going on the Wee, and I want to swap the unit between bikes. BTW, I'm open to suggestions for vendors for these and other GPS-related accessories.

Anyway, I like it a bunch, and I promise to try and use the "search" function as much as possible! I'm also a member of Zumoforums.com, which looks like a great resource, too.

L8r!

GPS City, Edge GPS, are two places I've purchased stuff from. No complaints and quick ship. I'm also new to the GPS thing. It ain't replacing the my maps just yet but it does add a little extra to the ride.

Oh, I forgot this one, it has all 50 states and uses colors for type of riding, not really a GPS tour, but very usefull no less.
