Garmin units to be on Honda Gold Wing Motorcycles
Honda has selected Garmin to be part of their tier one parts providers for GPS units to be sold on their Gold Wing motorcycles.
Known as the Honda Satellite Linked Navigation System, it provides complete North American mapping with nearly six million points of interest - places like hotels, restaurants, tourist attractions, and Honda Motorcycle dealerships and service centers - displayed on a large seven-inch integrated display.
The Honda Satellite Linked Navigation System gives clear turn-by-turn voice prompted directions through the motorcycle's audio and intercom system. The system features large, easy-to-use buttons and rugged, solid-state memory for map storage.
"We're very excited to have the industry's first fully integrated navigation system on a motorcycle," said Ray Blank, American Honda's Motorcycle Division Vice President. "Gold Wing customers expect premier components on their motorcycles and Garmin has delivered with the Honda Satellite Linked Navigation System."
The new Gold Wings are also available with an optional airbag!

Is the Garmin GPS unit, located within the Honda Goldwing, able to be connected to a desktop computer for trip planning - in other words, can the flash card be removed from the motorcycle, and plugged into my desktop computer, and a trip stored in it? I would appreciate help in planning a 13-state trip on the east coast of the U.S. I would hate to have to do the whole trip on the motorcycle.
