Chef, I thought I was going to have a GPS before you did. Now I know, I have to get one ordered or something another. Let me know what you think about it. I was thinking of still getting a 2610.

Chef, set it up in your car or pickup and use it there for a while first.
It's easier to get familure with it on 4 wheels than two. You'll be punching buttons and playing with it to see what it does, and you really don't want to be learning how to use it while riding the bike.

It's a big distraction when you first get one and you'll be watching it a lot instead of the road. After your use to using it and know the way it works, then put it on the bike. That way you'll know what your doing with it and, though you'll still be watching it and punching buttons for what you want, you'll know what your doing and each action won't take you mind off the road for so long.

Have fun with it. They're really fasinating.

I couldn't let Chef get 1 up on me so I ordered a Garmin 2720 and will use it in the truck, like Jim said and become familiar with it before puttting it on the bike.... :D

Then it'll never get on the bike!

I've ordered Jon's mount and the Kennedy gear to get it hooked up to the bike. Driving down to Orlando next weeken in the car and am looking forward to see how badly it messes up. Hopefully not as bad as Mapquest.
