Kent, September 29, 2012 Sure, the 665 has a big screen, but you can't see it. The
screen is difficult to see during the day impossible to
see in direct sunlight. I miss the hard buttons that were
on the 550 for volume control, changing channels and
zooming in and out.
I'm finding the map is not all the great either. Most of
the time, its not indicating what road/route/highway I am
on.....all that is see is a moving picture with colored
lines on it.
Unlike the 550, the wiring hardess is hardwired to the
motorcycle cradle. The motorcycle cradle must stay on the
bike. The wiring harness has the input/output jacks
intergraded into it, which makes the wiring harness long
and difficult to manage/dress in.
As you can tell, I have nothing good to say about the 665.
Its very expensive , and the very few key features that
need are not there. I am considering taking the hit and
finding a refurb'd Zumo 550. You have been warned, steer
clear of this one.
Fred, August 13, 2012 Recently purchased this from Harley-Davidson. Its what they
dont tell you!. Like, with a helmet you get about a 3 out
of 10 for volume. When I called Garmin, they said I had the
wrong helmet. But they would'nt tell me what the right one
is. nor would they help correct the problem. With out a
helmet the Zumo works great.
Alan, March 28, 2012 Purchase, Delivery & Package swiftly received. Set up was
easy. Loaded it with XM ann. Package. Did not buy Weather @
$90 or Travel Advisory @ $50. Disapointed in volume and no
visability on the bike in the Sun. Had to purchase a
"Hoodie" via e-bay as Garmin did'nt think this out? Wonder
who the biker advisor was? Have Bluetoothed my 4S I-Phone
with Wireless Bluetooth (Uclear)Helmet Accessory.
Bob, November 11, 2011 I bought a 665 for my trip from ME back to AZ.
The factory refurbished 665 looked as if it had never been
Unfortunately, after installing it, after a few days it
would randomly speed up the voice prompts--sounded like it
was in fast forward.
I called garmin tech support which had me download updated
software to fix this problem. The unit worked for a few
days and then did the same thing.
During my next call with tech support they had me do a hard
rest that wiped out everything I had programmed into it,
erase all of the voices, download the same software I had a
few days before and then download just the English voices.
The unit work fine for a few days.
I was headed down an interstate head back home to AZ when
the voice prompt went into fast forward. I rest the unit
while going down the interstate and it was normal. While
listening to the MP3 player I heard a song I don't remember
hearing before. It was rather "space" like, not one of the
blues songs I had entered? After around 10 minutes of this
strange recording I went into the play list to skip this
song. I discovered it was one of my favorites!!
I shut the 665 off and then turned it on, there wasn't any
I played around with the volume controls and the audio came
Running down the interstate the voice prompts speed up
I was only 90 miles from where I have been staying in Maine,
so I went back.
I called garmin and was informed it would take them two
weeks after they received my unit to replace it.
When i explained I bought it for my trip and that i turned
around because it wasn't working properly they queried if
the GPS part was working which it is.
So, I can either send it to them now and have the
replacement sent to AZ or use the unit and send it to them
when I'm back home in AZ!?
I really do not want to wait until the first week of Dec to
leave Maine headed back home!! For some reason, I do not
want to be here when it starts snowing again.
