Goes without saying really - Motorcycle GPS systems lets you travel to far flung places without the need of maps and the time to pore over them. Have you ever been in one of those cities that has a total absence of signs right where you are desperate for a point in the right direction. There is many a junction with an absence of signage, Dublin in Ireland is a good example of such a place. Without a doubt key places lack basic sign posting. All I could do in such a place was to hope for the best with a guess. Sometimes I ended up miles off course.
Being lost in the city is one thing but no GPS out in the sticks can be worse. Some naughty people (I did use other words at the time.) would turn the signposts to have them point the wrong way quite often. It tended to happen more to the signposts lettered in English than the irish language signs.
So You Plan To Buy a GPS - Which Are The Brands And Models Out There
Motorcycle GPS mounting systems is another topic to concern ourselves with. All well and good having the best model that does everything and more if attaching to the bike is not easy. The handlebars of the bike is the usual place to situate the GPS as it is the best position to see what is on the screen. You won't need a Motorcycle Lift Table to be able to fit the unit.
Will it tell you how many miles to the next gas station? Often in the countryside it could be vital information to know how many miles before you can fill up. Planning fuel stops when your bike only has a small petrol tank.
How good is the GPS when it is raining, is it weather proof. You don’t want it going up in smoke if the rain starts. On the other end of the spectrum does it have any protection from UV rays.
It is possible to power the motorcycle gps tracking systems for the battery on the motorcycle? Do you have a motorcycle battery charger Maybe it has a battery inside that will provide power for enough time to do what it has to. When you are riding some distance into unfamiliar parts of the world the better to have a good GPS. Safer to be watching the road rather than the little map on the GPS. So is there a way to have the turn by turn directions sent to headphones in the helmet.
Modern versions of the technology are sure to be accurate enough for what we need, so no worries there. Getting a pin point position of where we are will not be a problem. See that your motorcycle is properly set up to cut interference.
