Never Get Lost Again. Our Editors Review The Top GPS & Navigation Units for Your Motorcycle
Who needs a GPS anymore now that we all have a smartphone? It’s a good question that we often ask ourselves here a wBW. We keep coming back to the fact that dedicated GPS units have functionality that makes life a little easier while riding.
Given the higher levels of vibration and the generally harsher conditions on a motorcycle, dedicated GPS units are better than an iPhone at getting beat up. Same goes for when trying to update an iPhone while riding, with gloves. Glove friendly displays are now a standard feature of many of the top rated motorcycle GPS units as is custom software that lets riders map points along their longer rides and customize routes (via mountain pass please).
Some other helpful articles include general information on buying a GPS on Joe Mahaffey’s GPS site; it has tons of info on GPS receiver information; software; hardware; reviews of Garmin, Lowrance, and Magellan.
