Garmin - Built Conquest GPS on Harley-Davidson Motorcycles
Garmin announced that Harley-Davidson will begin offering a customized GPS navigation system – named the Conquest – that features highly detailed, pre-loaded maps of North America.
The Harley-Davidson Conquest is available as an accessory for '96-later models (except VRSCR) using the new handlebar mounting bracket. The Conquest will also fit the Road Glide and Electra Glide FLHT, FLHTC, FLHTCUI, AND FLTRI 1998 model year or later with a mount that fits onto the motorcycle’s fairing for a clean and streamlined look.
The Conquest provides premium road navigation capabilities like turn-by-turn voice-prompted directions to addresses or nearly six million points of interest – places like lodging, restaurants, and a customized database of Harley-Davidson dealers and service centers. Riders will enjoy the unit’s easy-to-use interface and easy-to-read high-resolution color display.
The unit contains 2GB of internal flash memory that stores virtually every highway and byway in North America – with 500MB left over for user-loadable MapSource maps. The expanded memory also makes the unit faster to calculate routes and zoom and pan maps.
Rugged and waterproof, the Conquest can be removed from the motorcycle’s integrated fairing mount and stowed in a pocket for safekeeping. Turn-by-turn audible voice prompts (in a choice of 12 different languages) are delivered through the bike’s audio system or an included earbud. The unit also has an internal lithium-ion battery (20 hours, typical use) for on-foot adventures.
The Conquest navigation system gives riders even more reason to hit the open road on nearly any Harley-Davidson motorcycle. See Harley-Davidson dealers for pricing and installation, or visit www.harley-davidson.com for more details.
