Coinciding with the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, Garmin this week announced a Harley-specific version of its zūmo GPS device. The Road Tech zūmo is available at the massive rally and at Harley-Davidson authorized dealerships.
The zūmo line is specially designed for motorcycle riders. The unit is waterproof and built with gloved users in mind by utilizing oversized buttons.
The unit is Bluetooth enabled and allows for hands-free usage. Points of interest can be directly accessed via the interface. Navigation voice prompts can be sent directly to your headset and optional traffic alerts are available in some select cities.
The branded Road Tech zūmo comes pre-loaded with locations of Harley-Davidson dealerships, but of more interest is the ride planner that will be available at Harley-Davidson.com. Riders will be able to share rides with others via the special program, or with the removable SD card. Garmin also has a ride-sharing program here.
