I found a post I made about 10 years ago on this forum saying/asking about installing a gps where the nav screen is. I honestly don’t want another device but I’ll try a few different t things first and maybe just use a mounted gpa for longer tripsBecause the onboard nav in my 2012 is NOT user friendly I listen to Google maps from my phone and watch the bigger map on the bike. Now if I could install a touch screen device in the bike where the nav screen is that was as easy to use as my phone then I would be a happy camper. Having to toggle to each letter in my destination with the onboard just sucks. I did a 500 miler last summer this way and it worked very well. My only hiccup was the phone ran low on power so I had to stop and plug it in.
I’m 2005, so I’m pre-navigation all together. I’ve used Garmin for years. A 7” nuvi has served me well. But I got a Christmas deal on an XT and will be changing to that this year. The XT is smaller, so we’ll see how it goes. I’m one of those guys that traveled with only paper maps, for a very long time.Yeah pre 2018 GWs are a different color
Michael what do you use to creat your route?Again, the big advantage that the Honda nav has is that you can create whatever route you want to follow and download it. For instance, we went to Key West last summer. The maps available in CarPlay all took us down I-95 which we didn’t want to do. So I created a route that was not on the interstate. As far as I know you can’t do that with other map apps.
