Garmin Launches the zumo 665 Motorcycle GPS Unit
“From back roads to rallies, you can listen to the radio, check the weather and move ahead of traffic as you travel down the road," said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales, "For entertainment or information, the zkmo 665 makes every road trip more enjoyable and stress-free.”
The zumo 665 features a 4.3-inch touchscreen color display and has all the needed information in an easy-to-read format with a glove-friendly intuitive interface that makes entering information as easy as shifting gears.
The new GPS unit speaks street names and will deliver turn-by-turn, voice prompted directions, such as “turn right on Main Street,” via the built-in speaker headphone jack or through a compatible Bluetooth helmet or headset.
The device also has enhanced Bluetooth Wireless Technology with A2DP support making it possible to receive and place phone calls as well as receive navigation cues wireless to Bluetooth enabled headsets or helmets, without having to remove the gloves or helmet.
While riding, it’s also easy to access trip information like speed, heading, altitude, and a customizable fuel gage that can be modified to the motorcycle’s maximum fuel range. In addition, owners can create and custom routes via computer and then transfer the saved route directly to the zumo before beginning the journey.
