New to BMW
I'm a new BMW owner with the purchase of a new GT (blue) from my local dealer. I've been riding Harley-Davidson exclusively until now, but was smitten with what the German engineers had to offer. I only have a couple of hundred miles on the bike so far, but I can say without hesitation that I love it. It's a completely different riding style for me. I still have, and love, my "day-cruising" harley, but this new GT is easily becoming my long-range bike of choice.
I've decided to outfit my new bike with a GPS unit, and I think that I've settled on the new Garmin 2820, which is to be available this June. This new unit has Bluetooth capability so that one could use a compatable mobile phone through the speaker/headset operations.
I'm wondering if there is anyone who currently does this with other gps units (Tomtom, other Garmins, etc.) and if it's a usefull or dangerous tool? Usually I wait until a rest or fuel stop to check my voicemail, but answering on the fly sounds interesting.
Looking forward to some warm riding weather this holiday weekend. And if not, I'll heat the grips.
