  1. TomTom Rider 550 Review

    General MC Message Board
    When I started shopping for my wing GPS was on my desired list of options but less important to me than year, mileage and overall condition. I have experience with GPS from most major brands and the user interface on the Honda was less than great though the screen positioning was perfect to me...

    Anyone have any experience using this program? I’m wondering if it will create better gps routes than any of the other options, AND work with the Honda nav system for 2018+. I’m having many issues with both HTP and Harley Ride Planner. They show the correct path I’ve created online on the pc...

  5. Honda GPS

    2018 Goldwing Board
    Something new (for me) Today I created a route to a bfst spot and return by a different path. I used two shaping points in BaseCamp and exported via Babel to the Honda system. The route came up as expected without any deviations or U turns. So I intentionally took a different route to the...
  6. Is the CF update for worthwhile for showing more roads

    General MC Message Board
    I have the pre-09 built in navigation with the CF card. Unless I have done something totally wrong initially the system has never shown streets other than state and federal highways. No county roads or small city streets where most of my riding is done. Is an update worthwhile to solve this...

  8. I need help in the worst way with 2010 GPS

    GL1800 Tech Board
    I really screwed up this time on my 2010 Wing GPS update. I tried to update the maps on my wing by following a couple of postings here and have somehow LOST EVERYTHING. I thought that I had made a back up of the folders and files on the SD Card and saved to my computer but that apparently is not...
  9. GPS - travel direction bouncing 180 degrees out

    2012 Goldwing Board
    OK, A couple of weeks ago, I did a 125 mile run for a customer visit and everything worked fine. I come out for the nice ride home and the GPS cannot tell which direction I am going. It just turns 180 degrees one way then almost immediately turns the other way 180 degrees. My position is...

  15. Anyone running GPS power cord from cigarette 12v adapter in left glove box???

    Electronic motorcycle devices
    Sorry if this is a duplication. Couldn't find a relevant post on the topic despite best efforts. I've ordered a RAM mount to mount my Garmin GPS (Streetpilot c550) on the clutch. The issue is that I only have one cigarette 12v adapter on my 2001 GW (standard left glove box plug & play). I...

    So I recently purchased a spot tracker and would like to know how to create/end a trip using spotwalla. I see the "create" page with start & end times but what if you don't know your end time? Also once the trip is over do you go back and end it at spotwalla? What about doing the same at the...

  18. Cool Honda GPS Feature

    General MC Message Board
    I went to enter an address into my 2012 Honda GPS on Friday and noticed I could enter a telephone number. So, I typed in the number for our hotel and shownuff, the hotel address filled in and the GPS took us right there. Next day, I put in the cell phone number of a man in Georgia, no joy. Ah...
  19. How to update Navigation unit with free maps that aren't from Garmin

    General MC Message Board
    Here's a way you can get updated maps for your GoldWing Navi (pre 2012 only I think), without having to pay Garmin an exorbitant amount. Don't get me wrong, I believe companies are in business to make a profit, and if Garmin gave me a way to buy a lifetime update for an equivalent price, as I...
  20. Beta Testers wanted for testing Transparent Overlay Maps on GPS

    Electronic motorcycle devices
    I ride a 2010 GoldWing level 2 and a 2002 Honda VTX 1800C. I had long ago equipped my VTX with a Garmin Zumo 550. I went through a long learning curve of all the possibilities afforded by having GPS on my motorcycle. Planning routes, saving favorites and even geo-caching while outriding. I even...
