Powerful antenna - gets signals everywhere
Runs on rechargable battery (4-5 hours)
Built in MP3 player (500 songs) - Great sound with earbuds while riding
Built in calulator, currency converter, and other stuff
Good bright display / touch screen - no buttons to mess around with
Huge database - Its like traveling with the yellow pages
PC USB capability
Havent found a good way to mount it on the K12 - I have been getting by putting it in the top of my tankbag but the angle gets the screen washed out in direct sunlight. I mostly listen to the audio directions that automatically dim the MP3 player. Very cool.
t's not designed to load a trip using multiple waypoints - You set the destination and it allows just one detour. Probably not a big deal for most users.
Pirate - This GPS is definately the future. Need a good light weight. quick release mount for the K12. hint, hint.
