I would have thought that navigation devices for motorcycles would be the same basic price as nav devices for cars. Garmin has unveiled a new nav device for motorcycles that is much more expensive than the average automotive nav unit called the Zumo 665.

The device is set to launch in Q1 2010 at right under $1000. For that much loot you get a nav device with a 4.3-inch touchscreen that is durable and waterproof to IPX 7 standards. The device also has an integrated GXM 40 XM antenna that allows the rider to add optional XM subscription for entertainment.

The XM connectivity also allows the rider to get access to XM NavWeather and real-time XM NavTraffic services. The device also supports Bluetooth with A2DP for streaming stereo sound and mobile phone calls.
