When we got wind of Garmin's Zumo 665, the new navigation system for folks who like to do it in leathers, we were quite excited to learn about its integrated A2DP and other new features -- but totally lost interest when we saw the $999 MSRP. You can get a perfectly serviceable UJM starter bike for that kind of cash! Garmin is now addressing the situation with the Zumo 220, which "scales down size and price of motorcycle navigation" -- to $599. Yes, still pricey, but you get most of the features of the bigger brother, including Bluetooth compatibility (though seemingly not A2DP), waterproof construction, and text-to-speech guidance. It sports a 3.5-inch touchscreen and of course comes with a bike mount, but also has a car mount for those days when weather prohibits riding in to work -- or when you just don't feel like getting all your gear on. Look for it to ship sometime before the quarter is up.
