You may already know how GPS or Global Positioning System works. It locates a subject by cross referencing the satellite signals to plot the position of the user on the globe. But not all GPS devices are created equal. Some are made for the army and some are made for you. Take in for example the waterproof and ultra-modern Garmin Zumo 550; this one’s for the free-spirited rider!
It is not always so easy to navigate when you are riding big bikes because of the risks involved. There is the stopping in the high way and then taking out the map to have a look at where you are. This is a big problem especially when it is raining and when you are really in a hurry (not to mention it really destroys many biker rules as well as the idea of riding free of worries). With the Garmin Zumo 550, you can take all of these concerns away. This quality designed is not created for a motorcycle but for the motorcyclist himself. The touch screen allows the biker to operate the device even while riding and with the large icons, you can still use it even when you have gloves on.
Unlike cars, motorcycles do not protect you from the sun’s glare and while other GPS units hinder you from reading the display, the Garmin Zumo 550 is very readable even on bright sunlight. Plus, it is UV friendly so you do not have to worry about the sun damaging your precious device or your eyes. The Garmin Zumo 550 is waterproof. Since you will be riding your bike for a long time and you may not have the inkling that rain will occur. This device will never surrender to rain. Bring on any storm and your Garmin GPS will still function. Ride like the sun won’t shine anymore because Garmin Zumo 550 will never give up on you.
The Garmin Zumo 550 also comes with its own mount for the motorcycle handlebars. This GPS unit is fuel and vibration resistant too. Ever since the birth of these systems, many bikers have had an issue regarding with the need to look down just so they can read the directions. This won’t be a problem with Garmin GPS units. Zumo allows you to listen to the directions with the help of Bluetooth technology letting you know where you should go and turn without having to look down at the device. Make your motorcycle navigation a breeze with the waterproof Garmin Zumo 550 GPS unit.
