Rancher, it's probably easier to order off their site (although it's a little slow). If you piece it together by yourself you might find it's a better deal.

I just got the Nuvi 500 as well. Picked up the Ram handlebar mount for it through GPSCity.com. Was right at $45 with 2 day shipping. With standard shipping, I think it wouldn't been around $38 shipped.

Gonna go try it out for the first time on the quad tomorrow.

I got the Garmin etrex HCx and used it for the first time last week. It was great. I love being able to mark the truck and then just ride knowing you will be able to find your way out. Got the Ram mount from Cabela's which is great as well.

Thanks Moose, I have looked on their site and will be ordering my mount from them. I'm going to order the mount with the stainless steel hardware.

I purchased my Ram Mounts from expressmounts.com They have a reference area to ensure the correct mount for your GPS as well as the hardware to mount it to the bike...very fast processing and shipping...

I just did a snow ride with my son and a couple buddies up in NH. It was nice having it as we were riding an area we haven't been to before. Was snowing and it didn't even hiccup. Nice unit. We were blasting through 9-10" of powder. Now, if I can just get my son to dress warmer we might be able to stay out another hour or two. And, yes, I'm starting to think about hand warmers again.

I have the Earthmate PN-30 with a RAM mount and I love it.
If you have an REI near you they have a great class that shows you how to use all of the features of the different handheld GPS units.

Moose
Do you have problems with sunlight causing a glare on the screen? I have seen sun shades you can get for the 500. Wondered if one was needed?
Thanks
