I am just getting in to motorcycle touring and I have had my Bike since July (R1150RT) I live in california and I am doing small trips every other weekend.(working on my riding skills and building up my distance)
I would like to get a GPS but I have no idea of what I need.
I plan to do freeways when I have to, but I would like to find the smaller -more interesting side roads when possible. nothing off road.
I would like one of the large screen models that can transfer from my bike to my truck.
I would want to plug the GPS into a power outlet
I would like to have the GPS record my ride stats- time, speed, time stopped ....and that sort of thing
I guess I could live with limited point routing features. and just reprogram as I go.
I need something basic and easy to operate. I don't want a bunch of features I will not use.
and it probably should be water proof
as I said above, I am new to this and I have no idea of what I should look at or what to avoid
I have a budget of $200 for this item
if some one could walk me through the process I would be grateful
