I've only ever had one. A Garmin 60CSX. It's discontinued now, but replaced by the 62 series. There's 8 or 10 people that I know and ride with using the 60csx with good results. Maybe search around for a good condition used one also. Most of the newer styles are now touch screen models, just haven't had to up-grade yet.

Here's a good post - LINK

Thing is you have a Garmin now, may be easier to stick with that brand.

I have a car model Garmin nuvi that I've just figured out how to load topo and custom maps to with some guidance form BobT. Here's a screen shot of it. (5" screen)

Although that unit is not water / mud proof

Got the extra RAM cradle and mounting arm for the nuvi 1490 from GPScity.com

Looks like this together on the Grizz, also have a roll bar mount for in the 'buggy'

I have 60csx and a nuvi 500. I need to figure out how to mount them on the rzr since my handlebar mount from the Grizz won't work.
The 60 has been flawless and it's been wet, frozen, baked and even works in tunnels.

I have everything except that bottom piece for the roll bar. I was hoping to mount them in the center so my passenger could also see them. Thanks for the links.

You could try out your handlebar mount first on the passenger T-bar, it was just a little too far away to see while driving. I didn't want to use any of the mounts that had to screw through the dash either, so I put the roll bar mount up high beside the mirror.

Good Luck Cool

yea that's two options that my friends have. Of those two I prefer the dash mount. It's only two holes so I may do that.

Also have this camcorder mount which is pretty cool looking out over the steering wheel and hood.

That's a nice mount. I keep my Contour stuck on my helmet so I am covered on that one.

BIG Screen was very nice and a huge help at 'ATVWV March Mudness Ride',
but the Grizz's cigarette lighter wasn't powered up so the nuvi battery run dead.

Have to check on tha or hard wire it straight to the battery like the 60csx is also.

Much Bigger and best of all Brighter screen to easily see more.

Works almost exactly like loading them to your handheld GPS.

Be sure card is in the unit, then 'find device' in MapSource and you can go from there like normal. Change your settings to be walking or hiking or bicycling, something other then following or track to road. You can then change your North Up or Track Up selection.

Under the map screen settings somewhere you may have to 'turn off' the Garmin Interstate Map and then turn on or check mark the Topo Map Set that you uploaded.

You won't be able to upload actual 'Tracks' though, only Topo Maps, Custom Maps, etc.

Let me know how it goes...

I was wrong my old GPS was a Magellan. So I found a Nuvi and got it for a good deal and went to set it up. Well the new Garmin are not compatible with the Mapsorce Mounted Garmin Nuvi w/ 60csx Smiley-angry016 Good thing I am fast on my feet this only took me an hour to figure out. So I get familiar with Base Camp this is the newer version of Mapsorce. A little time and cursing I think I have it. I will report back after I test it this weekend.

Easy Fix but a little hard to get to...

The Grizz has a 'mini' fuse panel out underneath the front hood & rack
You need a small screwdriver to 'un-lock' the panel holder and pick it up
out of it's little hole. Then I could unlatch the top cover over the panel
and replace the little... tiny... miniature 15 amp fuse for the cig lighter.

Big Screen is back in business now and brighter then ever. Cool
