Which GPS brand are you using?
Why don't you try a Zumo 660...............I have a Garmin E-Trex Legend and it died last year. It was about 5 or 6 yrs. out of warranty but Garmin gave me a refurbished unit for free. That's the best customer service I've ever experienced. I will go with Garmin on my next GPS purchase.
They're both discontinued, I think.
As to the 660, someday it will work the way it's supposed to work and not be so damcrippled. :var_15:
I have had a Garmin 60Cx for I think about 4 years now (and a few Garmin eMaps before that.) I use it on my Ultralight Airplane, used it as a backup on a flight in a Cessna from Toronto down to Long Island in the Bahamas (we could have done the whole trip with just the 60Cx), I have used it to navigate on long roads trips in cars, and have used it for literally tens of thousands of kilometers of riding in all kinds of conditions.I have the Garmin 60CSX. Great little unit that has been bulletproof for three years of hard use.
TomTom Rider2. I have been very pleased with it, and its been on my bike for approx 50,000km, rain, snow, sleet, bumps, etc.
I also have it paired with the Cardo ScalaRider Q2 multiset, so I can get hands free phone calls, listen to my IPod and/or FM radio as well as communicate hands free with a passenger or another rider (up to about 500 meters).
Only the MP3 is in stereo. FM is Mono. You have to plug your IPod, etc in to a plug on the headset.I've heard lots of raves about the Cardo ScalaRider Q2 multiset
BUT don't see anything in the specs about stereo an I missing something or do you have to listen to MP3s & FM in mono
I still can't find the quote your refering to ..... with any mention of stereo....Only the MP3 is in stereo. FM is Mono. You have to plug your IPod, etc in to a plug on the headset.
Quote from the Cardo website "Includes an embedded jack to plug in an MP3 player for wired Stereo music (cable included)."
Voice instructions from the Rider2 recieves priority, and will halt music, as will an incoming phone call.
The Q2 also has auto volume (compensates for ambient noise), and if you buy the MultiSet, your passenger can conduct their own phone calls as well.
For some reason, when running your MP3 thru the headset, you lose a fair amount of volume. I bought a Boostaroo to correct that situation.
