Where's the cheapest place to buy? And what brand do you like for your wing? And did you do the install?

I bought a factory refub Magellan Roadmate 2200T waterproof unit at newegg.com

Mine is mounted using a RAM mount on the right side brake caliper bracket.

Although I like it there, I think maybe down on the key bridge like exavid did might have been better for sun shading reasons.

To add a little to it... I got my wife a TomTom One XL and it's not nearly the GPS that the Magellan is, IMO.

I just do a search for GPS and the model I want.
google will give you a lot of choices to look at.
Pick the cheapest one, and see if the vendor is certified by using Paypal or Verisign...

I have the Magellan, like Rudy and exavid and like it better than my Garmin. I would buy whatever brand I could afford. Depends on what you want to pay. Everyone has different preferences, and the only way you'll know what you like is after you have had one. They almost all do the same thing.

Newegg.com
amazon.com
tigerdirect.com

There's a bunch of sites out there.

I carry and $8.00 road map in the Godwing. Regular GPS's are nice and if you have the money to spend I would suggest any type of waterproof one.

I would think that you would not need a map or gps if you ride a GodWing!
