I know that it isn't going to be as weatherproof as one made specifically for motorcycles, but my question is, can you input an adventure route, unsing back roads and dirt roads, just like the higher-end GPS's? Is the map in a lower end Garmin as complete as the higher end units? I'm thinking, why spend hundreds of dollars when an older unit, that accepts routes, may work just fine. Anyone have a unit like this?
Can you post that list here?

I have a new setup that I like. Ram mounted Garmin 765t on handlebars, iphone in tank bag running Waze. Both synced to my Sena Bluetooth. I get driving directions and hazard and police warnings all at once.

My Battery Tender pig tail is plugged into a female cigarette lighter that powers everything in the bag. Works for me.
