Looking for a large screen GPS for street duty. Has anybody tried one of these units? Seem to save tracks( in marine mode only), waterproof, made for marine use so vibration shouldnt be a prob.. Not too expensive compared to the moto specific. Looks like there are some refurbs online for quite abit cheaper than new. Any thoughts?

Looks like a nice unit. The only issue for me is weather radar does not appear to be available in automotive mode.

Do a quick search. This unit looked promising, but as someone pointed out, the XM weather is not available in street mode.
They do have an avaiation unit that looks like it would work, has FM for traffic, and XM for weather. Should work in the same Touratech 665 mount. $1500....
