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!

I bought my husband a Garmin 550 for his 2000 Goldwing and we're having trouble getting the XM to come thru the speakers on the bike. In fact, it only comes thru the drivers headset and not the passengers. Any suggestions on how we need to hook it up?

I had several conversations with Honda and Garmin and both assure me that you cna not enter information into the GPS or remove tha card and enter data with a PC.
I am asking them to make modifications so the end user can enter a coordinate directly into the GPS and also remove the card and enter routes or waypoints using a computer.
Please, if theis is a passionate issue with you call and write to both Garmin and Honda.
I would not reccomend investing money in their present system when you can buy a good attachable unit that will cost about 1/3 and do twice the job.

Hi again, I now have a 2007 goldwing with the nav system. I removed the card and plugged it into the card reader in my computer to plan a trip or look at thr trip I just made on the bike. Can someone tell me how to open the card to view the maps. Is there a password I need? Thanks Sam

Hello, Is the card in the Garmin GPS unit for the 2007 Honda Goldwing the same as the micro card I have in my Garmin 60cx? Can I use the same map programs from Metro Canada and Topo Canada disc I have? Do I need a special adapter to plug into my computer? Thanks.......Sam

Are any already programed "chips" or flash units available for a 2006 Honda Navigation motorcycle for Route"66"? TX

OK, what software do you need to interface with the software on the card?
Thanks, Harold

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.
thank you,
Harold Scheffler
