Ok, I have a Zumo550 that I was going to send to Warp for Xmas when I get a new one, but it took a crap on me yesterday. I am still doing a few long trips before my surgery and need an inexpensive replacement, but I can not justify the expense of a new Motorcycle GPS due to work issues and me being laid up with surgery, money will be tight.

So what are you guys running on your bikes that are not a Garmin Zumo or Tomtom Rider?

Thanks

Dave did you pull the battery and clean the terminals. When mine was not powering up or charging I found that cleaning them would bring it back on line. Also once its up and if its registered you should contact garmin so they could have a look see at it. I have even had them take control of my computer to help work the bugs out of the one I had and set it up for me.

Yea did that already, it's the screen that needs to be replaced, buttons work but screen input does nothing.
