Featuring a bright 4.3” touchscreen color display, the zūmo 665 puts all the information you need in an easy-to-read format as you travel down the road. The zūmo 665 also has a glove-friendly intuitive interface that makes entering information as easy as shifting gears. In addition, the wide sunlight-readable display makes for easy navigation — whether you’re riding during a bright day or a moonless night. And with a rugged waterproof case that resists fuel sprays and UV rays, the zūmo 665 was built for life on the road.
Just because your bike’s parked doesn’t mean your day is done. The zūmo 665 also pulls double duty as an in-car navigator when you’re on four wheels instead of two. In addition to the included motorcycle mount, the zūmo 665 also includes a carrying case, vehicle mount and power cable. It’s like having two full-featured navigators for the price of one.

Top Customer Reviews
Major problem with the unit is the XM features shutting down unexpectedly. One of the reviews here experienced similar problems and was told by Garmin that the antennal cable is faulty and a new cable is being designed. I do not think the cable hardware is the issue. I believe it is the software. I experienced the same problem once before I left on the trip and was told by Garmin Tech to perform a hard reset of the unit by holding your index finger on the lower right corner as you turn the unit on until you see the message that "a reset will erase your data". You have to select "yes" or "no". Yes does reset the XM but erased all of my favorites, routes and settings. The unit reverts to the settings as it comes from the factory. Also, sometimes during this trip, I had to turn off the XM and then back on in order to reacquire the XM programming. I have the XM subscriptons for XM radio, NavWeather and NavTraffic. When XM stops, all of those are lost until a hard reset. I had to do hard resets at least 10 times on this trip-very, very inconvenient when riding a motorcycle down the road. I had bought the Zumo 665 to replace my Zumo 550 since the 665 has the Nexrad Radar display...very, very helpful when riding in the elements. The radar works fine when XM is working. When removing the until from the motorcycle mount, be sure it is off. Otherwise, you will have to hard reset to regain the XM features the next time you restart it in the motorcycle mount.Read more ›
1. The 665 includes the GXM40 antenna, so you can receive XM Radio, Weather and Traffic (all requiring subscriptions from XM Sirius). I happen to love XM radio, and the weather and traffic reports are incredibly useful. I have XM on my 550, but the GXM30 antenna had to be purchased separately. For those of you looking at a side by side comparison of the 550 and 665, realize that if you buy the 550 and the GXM antenna, the price is not much lower than the 665 itself. If you're on a bike, if you just get the XM Weather (or even the expensive but really powerful XM weather radar reports for the 665), it will save you a lot of trouble.
2. The 665 is motorcycle friendly, apparently designed for a motorcycle first. It is waterproof at the IP7 standard, so I believe you can submerge it for 30 minutes in water. Of course, a huge rainstorm is not going to have an effect. It is rugged, meaning it's not going to breakdown after years of riding on the roads.
3. It is Mac and Windows friendly. This is a serious issue, because Garmin seems to be the ONLY manufacturer of GPS devices who values the Mac market. You can update the firmware, manage maps, create roadtrips, etc. by using Mac applications.Read more ›
XM reception, plus traffic & weather
Bluetooth A2DP support (sort of)
"glove compatible" user interface
Bluetooth A2DP support -- Will not pair with the music/audio for a smartphone (I'd like to stream radio)
Short battery life
I can only give this 4 stars since it won't support the headphone profile for my smartphone. I like to stream radio while I'm driving long distances but I can't with this GPS. There are also some nits to pick with the user interface (such as not remembering the map zoom after a power off) but it is a superb GPS for motorcycles and open-air autos.
*Also note, until July 4, 2010 there is a mfg rebate of $100 that is *not* valid for (only) Amazon purchases. I went to a New York web supplier and saved $100!
First of all this unit is WAY over priced but I managed to get a pretty good deal after I get the rebate back which will hopefully be soon.
I've been using this every day I ride which is multiple times a week and haven't had a single issue with the connections as someone else mentioned. The GPS is one of the best I've used from Garmin and I've had several of them. The Touch Screen is very responsive even with gloves on, bright and easy to read in all lighting conditions.
Everything you need to mount this one a standard bike is included in the box. I had to add a few things to get it mounted on my Goldwing but that is because of the non-standard handlebars. You can also use this in your car and it automatically detects which mount you have it on and remembers your settings for that vehicle type. I should mention that I've only really used this on my motorcycle but did try it in the car and it is just as responsive.
When you turn the bike on the unit will automatically power on and and acquires the sat signals very quickly and so far I've had very good luck with the routes and the setting (like avoid Highways and Unpaved Roads). I like how it shows a green line on routes / roads that you've taken before when not in directions mode. I also love that you can customize the data fields that are shown on in the bottom corners of the screen just buy touching them and picking the data you want it to show.Read more ›
