In a perfect world, you would convince GARMIN to manufacture an updated 478

Now we know!

@thetable - We really appreciate our customers, both new and seasoned vets. Thank you!

@mint - I'm not sure yet, we've picked up and put down the Drift a few times. Given the refresh cycles of these products, I think it'll be Fall before we make a decision on whether it offers more bang for our customers' buck. We may see some surprises this fall in the action cam market.

@dep - Those gimble mounts are COOL. Some of the guys here have them stuck to their desks so they don't spill coffee.

@GS - Thank you! The SE's are going to be shipping shortly and we're eager to try them out. Feel free to shoot me a PM and I can put a little ADV love towards a preorder.

Thanks again GPSCity, Delorme InReach on order!

Just found this thread. My wife calls me a RAM Mount hoarder. I do have quite the collection

Looks like I found my new shop!

We also have both the GoPro and Contour Camera's so that will help too for new mounts and stuff!

You too? I tend to buy twice as many as I need, so I have a massive overstock now.

Awesome, I'm glad the coupon's helping you guys out -- my door is always open if any has more suggestions, too. I'm handling requests one-on-one at the moment, but I'm definitely listening to find common trends too.

The GPSMAP 62S/ST/STC are going to be on sale pretty soon, so perhaps that's a good one for those who end up in canyons a lot.

We have some ideas we're ready to immediately implement with the RAM side, but the Garmin/electronics side is a bit of a tougher nut to crack. Zumo? Montana? Mapping handhelds? Any specific accessories? The more we can zero in on a product/products, the better our deal can be.
Hi,

While not currently in the market, my suggestion is to make some 'Motorcycle Bundles'. Most riders buying a GPS will want the mounting accessories also (eg GPS, bracket, AMPs plate, arm, ball u-bolt mount). Have an offer for ADVRiders that sells the lot for a single, ADV, price.

Maybe also options to make them easier to wire up, for example when buying a Montana with the rugged mount. ship some bullet connectors to hard wire it, don't make us go to an Auto Store to get the bits to connect it to the bike electrics.

Anyway just my 2¢ worth, hope it was helpful.

Cheers,

Craig

Congrat's on your new GPS.
Your gonna love the 600 series. Remember to put some ear plugs in the battery compartment to keep it from powering off due to vibration, and you will be good to go.
I cant belive how good it is. I had a 76csx and now hardly ever use it due to being spoiled now with my 650.
GPS City has always over performed and under promised. Cant go wrong with this outfit.

You guys have no idea how good they are. They worked out a deal on the NA Highway map software that no - no - repeat: no one would ever offer. I love my Utah, oops, I mean Oregon.

I wore my GPS City shirt today and had a guy on a Harley ask me about GPS City. I gave him the spill, steered him to ADV and GPSCity. He took a picture of me and my shirt. We then talked about a dual sport. He said he was looking at trading his leathers in for nylon and has a woody for the Tiger 800.

My response; paved roads were designed to led you to dirt roads. As he twisted his mustache, he said - "you know, there are a lot of dirt roads out there".

I ordered a different b-ball for my 76cx ram mount .I wrote the order# down when I did the order.I checked the status that night and got a status of backordered.I went on the expressmounts website the next day and got a part# for an alternate part the would work.I called them the next morning and got the order updated and shipped in 3 minutes or so.But if I hadnt checked the status of my order that night I would not have known they were out of stock on the part that I originnaly ordered.Either the website should be upgraded to show parts out of stock at the time of ordering or a fast email response so I can order an alternate part sooner.Part was shipped asap when I gave them the new part #.I prefer the usps priorty mail because it ends up in a locked mail box.This isnt really a complaint-just a suggestion.Anything I get from Expressmounts comes in 2 days.

Sorry to hear about that! Can you PM me your order number so I can investigate on our end?

Our site pulls up-to-the-second inventory status for all items and we list shipping dates for all items that are en route, however it's possible that someone else ordered the item a few minutes before you and it had not yet been processed. We're always working on solutions for these kinds of issues and appreciate hearing the feedback!

Thanks,
G

This would be a great next offer. Namely because I need a 660.

I know it's not the right place, but lay your hands on a Montana. It really blows the rest of Garmin's offerings away. The only reason I could see not to go with the Montana is if you have to have Bluetooth and music from your gps.

To keep it on topic, I just got my Montana from GPSCity yesterday. Smoking fast shipping, and a great unit on top of that.
