    A friend of mine is a "map" guy wanting a simple to use hand held gps ( "62" or "62s"????.) It will be used on his Gold Wing. He loathes my 250w so no car gps for him. Thanks for any and all input.

    If he rides a Goldwing, chances are the tiny screen of the 6x series is going to be an issue. The same goes for the Dakota and Oregon series. If he also doesn't like your Nuvi, the 6x will be a bear to use as it's far more oriented to off-road tasks than on-road.

    I'd recommend either the Montana or the Zumo series, although the latter will be similar in functionality to the Nuvi (car) line.
