    My '07 catalog shows it as $1,000, and then there are 3 or 4 items below it that are "required" for installation. For that kind of money you can get the best gps on the market and a couple of nights in a good hotel.

    I helped a friend set one up on a CVO ultra that came with the HD gps. Difficult to set up and IMO not very user friendly.

    My friend and I both have Road Glides. I have a Garmin unit that cost me about $300 because a new model was coming out. It cost me another $15.00 for a RAM mount. My friend bought the HD unit. It cost him about $1,100 to buy the unit and get it installed. My unit does everything his does except it doesn't have a dedicated button to find any Harley dealers that might be nearby. I don't think that button is worth $800.

    BigLew55, my mistake. I had no idea that some HD radios came with GPS systems. Given what some of the other posters have said, it looks like a stand-alone unit would be better than the radio system.

    BTW, I have a Garmin Nuvi 660. I originally bought it for the car but it also works well on the bike. However, I do have to cover it with a plastic bag when it rains. It is not waterproof like some (or all?) of the Zumo's. I think that the HD unit is a custom programmed Zumo but I don't know that for sure.
