I have hade the Zumo on my bike now for about three years. Last year it navigated me to the smallest backroads in Southern Italy without any problem at all. I would recommend a decent pair of ear phones.. I used American ones for about
Take a ride on a new route and explore the open road with the Garmin zumo 660. This motorcycle-friendly navigator was built to lead you on all of your two-wheeled adventures. Whether you’re on a weekday ride just across town or a weeklong trip to an annual rally with friends, the Garmin zumo 660 is ready to show you the way.
Featuring a bright 4.3” touchscreen color display, the zûmo 660 puts all the information you need in an easy-to-read format as you travel down the road. The zûmo 660 also has a glove-friendly intuitive interface with large buttons and left-handed controls that make entering information as easy as shifting gears. In addition, the wide sunlight-readable display makes for easy navigation — whether you’re riding during a bright day or a moonless night. And with a rugged waterproof case that resists fuel sprays and UV rays, the zûmo 660 was built for life on the road.
Pick your path and hit the streets. The Garmin zumo 660 is ready to go right out of the box. It’s preloaded with City Navigator® NT street maps and millions of points of interest (POIs) that include motels, restaurants, gas stations, ATMs, and more. In addition, the zûmo 660 offers 3-D building view and lane assist to show you more of your surroundings and make sure that you'll always know the right lane at the right time. The zûmo 660 also comes standard with a digital fuel gauge so you can keep track of how many miles you have left before it’s time to get gas.
The Garmin zumo 660 features Bluetooth® wireless technology so you can stay in touch while you're on the move. With it, you’re free to safely talk on your phone without having to remove your gloves or helmet. Simply connect your zûmo 660 to your Bluetooth-enabled headset or helmet and then pair with your cellphone to make and receive calls on the go. You can also call POIs through the zûmo’s Bluetooth interface — perfect for last-minute change of plans or a quick pit stop for food and fuel. And with spoken street names functionality, the zûmo 660 will also transmit voice prompts to your headset for wireless and worry-free navigation.
Have a long ride planned? The zûmo 660 is your all-in-one entertainment center. Featuring an on-board mp3 player and advanced Bluetooth A2DP technology, you'll enjoy crisp and clean stereo sound with your compatible headset. It’s also loaded with a picture viewer for taking friends and family on the road and it supports audiobooks to help break up the miles when you’re in for the long haul.
Found the perfect backroad to share with your riding buddies? Or perhaps you’re planning a cross-country trip and looking to avoid as much interstate as possible. With the Garmin zumo 660’s powerful trip planning tools, you can create your custom routes via computer and then transfer your saved route directly to your zûmo. And when you’ve returned home, you can review your rides in Google™ Earth. In addition, micro SD card expansion makes it easy for sharing routes and adding storage.
You can also visit zûmo Connect – our online community of routes and riders. It’s a great resource for finding new rides and planning trips.
Just because your bike’s parked doesn’t mean your day is done. The zûmo 660 also pulls double duty as an in-car navigator when you’re on four wheels instead of two. In addition to the included motorcycle mount, the zûmo 660 also includes a carrying case, vehicle mount and power cable. It’s like having two full-featured navigators for the price of one.
