Hi, no vibration on my harley, hi
yes maybe some but i am sure the heat killed it.
did see gasket around back plate (battery plate) was not a good seal, still
rain killed it for a week or two. could not see the screen , so i say i will
look for another brand of device.
one that can handle the wear and tear.
had gps in proper holding device/bracket with rubber bands too.
so being in the proper bracket may have kept down the viberation if there
was any, also i did not drive 1500 miles. more like 80.
and this is just my own decision to never buy a garmin etec gps again as
this is my second one i am not happy with. my own thing.
everyone can get what ever kind they want.
i will get a magellon next. maybe the 500 (price 200) dollars, not
400. i imagine if you spend 400 dollars you sure better get a rain proff gps
with 1/4 plug and the maps and marine. usa topo etc. i want to spend 200
and have it all i guess, i want and need one that is dependable to call in
air strikes for the taliban hi i would like one with a altimiter, and
baromiter. not sure if the 500 has it. probley not for 200 dollars, but
thats all i am going to spend on one, hopefully they will get cheaper in the
future. see the tom- tom came down in price.
