I looked at many gps systems and found COBRA to probably be the best. I wanted a large screen because I didn't want to have to squint or try and make out where I am going at freeway speeds on a four inch screen. This one is seven inches and that is easy to see. I can push enter my settings or searches or I can use a remote. I can sit back and use the remote to go where I want. Ease of use is there... for locations I can set it to home and push hoome and it goes there.
Excellent, though pricey.
I can only give this 4 stars since it won't support the headphone profile for my smartphone. I like to stream radio while I'm driving long distances but I can't with this GPS. There are also some nits to pick with the user interface (such as not remembering the map zoom after a power off) but it is a superb GPS for motorcycles and open-air autos.
The best motorcycle GPS system, hands down
In Summary, the 665 is a worthy next generation motorcycle GPS system. The three negatives are mostly being picky (I can see why Garmin did the change in wiring, and it does make sense), but the positives are outstanding. And although this is a motorcycle designed GPS system, it does well in a car too. Of course, if you don't need the motorcycle design, Garmin makes GPS/XM systems that are probably a lot less expensive, just for cars.
So, bottom line? I have now owned this very expensive piece of equipment for over a week and worked tirelessly to activate the satellite traffic and weather features. I wish that I could change my first review but I'd still have to say that if you want NavTraffic or NavWeather, DO NOT buy this unit until Garmin and XM get their act together, if and when that ever happens. If you don't want these features, just save [...] and buy the 660.
