Route Creator GPS
I am looking at a GPS for the bike (and car) and I am leaning toward a Garmin Nuvi 550. I think it is a good compromise, and I don't need even half the features it has (bluetooth phone connect, traffic alerts, etc...). What is important to me is the ability to plug into an on-board power source (yes), waterproof (yes), and the ability to predefine a route like on my computer beforehand (unknown). Does anyone know if this is possible with this model?
Can anyone recommend a unit that allows for route creation like what I described and still be motorcycle friendly? I am not going to spend $600+ on a Garmin ZUMO so those are out.
Before I get the "try doing a search before asking a GPS question" responses, I did, and I couldn't find the answer to my questions.
No, more like chewed out. I've been chewed out before ...
