Harley-Davidson riders can now benefit of a new portable GPS made by Garmin. The new release is called the Road Tech zumo and its main targets are the Harley-Davidson dealerships, as part of the American maker’s motorcycle accessories lineup.
Being a limited edition product, it sounds very promising and it actually is. Because it will fit Harley-Davidson motorcycles - it comes with handlebar mount and support on Harley-Davidson.com - it will feature all the dealership locations preloaded on it.
What is interesting and makes the zumo more useful is the fact that it has an SD card slot, allowing other zumo users to share trip information, just like truck drivers.
But it can also be fun. Because it has XM satellite radio hardware, it can be accessed for getting weather information and listen to music. You can also get TMC traffic alerts in cities that support it, and if now you can still use the sports programming function to relax.
Making a phone call from your bike is now even easier as the Road Tech zumo makes calls via Bluetooth equipped headsets. As it is wireless, you can also listen to the voice guidance using this method.
Designed to suit a rider’s needs and not become bothering in any way, the ingenious guys at Garmin made sure that their new product can be operated with a rider’s big-gloved fingers and never be affected by rain.
With a price tag of nearly $800, this will surely become a major point of interest for Harley-Davidson riders as it brings them even closer together.
