Re: 665 one device two antennas
Who knows the reason why Garmin decided to do it this way. Could be that putting the electrics that the puck holds would have made the 665 a much bigger unit? I'm just guessing. At any rate our 665 stays on the bike along with the puck, I've got another cheaper GPS Garmin model that I use in my truck. The one thing I kinda worry about is somebody taking the antenna off the bike and then I have to go and spend $150.00 for another puck. I can say that the only way they would get the puck off the bike is if they cut the wire and then the thing would be worthless.
Anyway it is what it is and we enjoy the radio and being able to listen to music no matter where were at. I actually have another cheap XM that I used to use on our LT and now use it in the truck. I think it all comes down to convenience and having the XM in the 665 means I don't have to wire up another electric and figure our how to tie it in to our communication system.
Like the other poster wrote you could just install the puck and 665 on the bike so they both can easily be transferred to the other bike/vehicle. I elected not to do this cause I wanted a clean install with very little of the wiring showing.
