GPS preferences?

9 posts in this topic

Hey all - wondering if any of you use GPS on your ATVs or cars or in life in general :)

I borrowed the ONE last week from a friend and absolutely loved it (didn't want to give it back, but alas)...Has anyone used the RIDER (the one made specially for motorcycles)?
