I'm planning a trip this August that will probably end up being about 4,500 miles - including riding the Going to the Sun road in Glacier park and the Columbia gorge.

I would like to get a GPS for the trip, and reading the reviews has made my brain itch. The Garmin zumo 660 does not seem to have lived up to its goal of surpassing the 550. In fact, I noticed that the price on the 550 went UP, and now it costs more than the 660. The 665 is loaded with features that don't interest me, so it is out of the question.

So, now, it sort of boils down to the Garmin 660 or 550, or the Tom Tom Rider.

Anyone have any experience with any of these units? I'm probably going to get a Cardo Scala Rider G4 for the trip, and a Shoei Neotech helmet, so a unit that talks to me through the Cardo has some appeal.
