Garmin's zūmo 660 motorcycle GPS shipping this month

Hot on the heels of Mio's introduction of its C523 V2 motorcycle-centric navigator comes good news for American bikers. Garmin's zūmo 660, which was originally announced at CES with a monstrous $800 price tag, is apparently set to ship before the end of this month. Aside from the widescreen design, advanced Junction and 3D building views, Bluetooth connectivity, large-format keyboard, the device also includes a 4.3-inch sunlight-readable panel, ruggedized and waterproof chassis and a built-in feature that hunts down other obnoxiously loud exhaust pipes. Yeah, we're just kiddin' on that last part, but at least you'll have this bad boy before you make the trek to Myrtle Beach next month and Sturgis in August.
