    What's the best portable GPS?

    GPS in my carputer is great but now I want it on my Harley. Something small with a big screen (relative to unit size) and easy to use. I'd like to also be able to easily move it to my 2nd car. I've seen some online for $300-500 bucks. Anyone have any suggestions or know what websites do good reviews of the portables?

    [EDIT:] Oops, may have just answered my own question with THIS. Any other ideas (since this will probably be pretty pricey and not available for a while)?

    RE: The posted link - Using Bluetooth for wireless audio was really smart of TomTom for the TomTom Rider. But what about screen washout - that little glareguard doesn't look big/good enough. Guess we'll see once they start shipping them to reviewers.

    I like Garmin 60CS I have. It useful in car, on bike and any hiking tirp. It also waterproof so i can take it on the boat and of cause any touristy thing. Today I left my G/F on the beach for 1/2 hour and marked her location on Garmin so I can come back to the same location.
