I've used the Quest on the bike and it is a very nice unit. I especially
liked the ability to use it off the bike (runs on it's own internal battery
for a claimed 7 hours) doing routing in the motel while I was hold up for
the night due to a Nor. Cal. thunderstorm.

I also have the 2610 version (okay, a BMW Navigator II+) which sells for a
lot more $'s but the Quest is still my favorite on a bike. The Quest II has
more memory for maps and that is a BIG plus. The 2610 has the ability to
store data on a CF card so you can load the U.S. on a 2 gig card and be off.
The smaller size makes it less obtrusive too on the bike (the yacky ability
gives me directions pretty well over the smaller screen via helmet
earphones).

The TomTom Rider maps seem to be better for the European market though.
Garmin=U.S. TomTom=Europe. Go figger.

Nice unit!

I bought one and was very relieved when it broke and I could return it
without penalty.
