A GPS system for your motorcycle can also help to make your journeys as comfortable, and stress-free as possible. If you fancy a break, or you’re running out of gas, your GPS can help. More importantly, your GPS unit can guide you back to safety when you get lost, or accidentally take the wrong turning.
Sound like the perfect device? Well, with GPS systems becoming mainstream, and new features and models consistently hitting the shelves, it usually is a hard task deciphering which GPS device best suits what you need.
GPS devices designed exclusively for motorcycles can offer you some very important features. Especially designed with you, the motorcyclist, in mind, units like the TomTom RIDER have tough, weather-proof casing, touch-screen options for gloves, and anti-glare screens.
The final type of GPS device that may appeal to you is the PDA/GPS hybrid. Although these devices have been designed primarily with portability in mind, most come with the added bonus of having a large screen. So, like the hand-held outdoor GPS units, this type of GPS would be ideal for those of you who enjoy a range of outdoor activities.
With an integrated PDA besides this, GPS/ PDA devices, like the Mio A201 for example, can be handy for work and play. With features like Microsoft Outlook, Word, Excel, and Powerpoint, makes it possible to catch up on work anytime, anyplace. If you prefer to listen to music while moving around, play games, or store digital photos, a GPS unit exactly like this is an ideal choice.
A considerable amount of GPS units available today have an accuracy of approximately 6-8 meters. You will find many newer GPS models are designed with a WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) capability, resulting in accuracies of 3-4 meters 95% of the time. The Garmin Quest 2 for example, has a flip up external antenna equipped with a 12-channel WAAS GPS receiver. This supplies position accuracy of up to 9 feet.
