These days a cell phone and a Bluetooth helmet works perfect for me+ I have tunes if I want.

google maps or Waze works so much better, is always updated. Waze, an app on the app store gives turn by turn instructions and warns you of road hazards like tire alligators in the roadway, or cops hiding under a bridge conducting a speed trap.. I dumped my garmin gps years ago.

I used velcro to fasten my Garmin to my ZZR1200 for my last trip from Texas to the Dragon...but once I got to the Treetops, it quit working correctly. Everyone there who had one had the same thing to say about theirs too.

Have a garmin 1490 w/Bluetooth have it mounted just under my windscreen
on the 1100. Its protected from the elements when riding and I can still clearly see the gage cluster. Pretty cool at night.

I use a Garmin Zumo 595 on mine. It's very convenient, easy and fun, but that's about it. If I needed to go from A to B, I'd probably use a phone. But with the Zumo I just stick it in and go.

Easy and fun means there's a feature called adventurous routing, where it will take me from A to B but find small roads, forest roads etc and lead me on a nice drive instead of just highway. And it has all major points located (like gas stations etc so I can always find one in need).

Sure, all can be done with a phone, but once I installed the mount, I have to say it's just so simple and convenient to use.
