Hi, all fellas :) My first post here, but been lurking for quite some time now. Let me contribute here.

On the other hand, the Nuvi 205 is going for $130 on Amazon and a lot of my riding is not the hard-core off-road stuff so... I'm wondering .... esp. when you count the $70/year to update the maps?

Undecided but thinking of "cheaping out"
To quickly adapt your cage GPS to your bikes without spending a fortune on watertight, dust-proof solutions, try looking for this:

It's called Hama Bike Hard Case and here in Poland costs as little as 15 bucks. The layout of the holes at the back is universal and matches many mounts for GPS gear, both in cars and motorcycles. And the 8 removable internal pads with velcro let you adjust the space for the GPS device. In the specs they say the thing is dedicated to bicycle and motorcycle use. Might be a good cheap alternative, huh?
