Designed By Bikers For Bikers
Featuring a bright 4.3” touchscreen color display, the zūmo 665 puts all the information you need in an easy-to-read format as you travel down the road. The zūmo 665 also has a glove-friendly intuitive interface that makes entering information as easy as shifting gears. In addition, the wide sunlight-readable display makes for easy navigation — whether you’re riding during a bright day or a moonless night. And with a rugged waterproof case that resists fuel sprays and UV rays, the zūmo 665 was built for life on the road.

Move Between Modes
Just because your bike’s parked doesn’t mean your day is done. The zūmo 665 also pulls double duty as an in-car navigator when you’re on four wheels instead of two. In addition to the included motorcycle mount, the zūmo 665 also includes a carrying case, vehicle mount and power cable. It’s like having two full-featured navigators for the price of one.

Add Weather and Radio
The zūmo 665 comes standard with our GXM 40 XM antenna. Simply add an optional XM subscription and receive real-time XM Radio with 170 digital channels of commercial-free music, news, sports, talk and entertainment when you travel in the U.S. With the addition of XM NavWeather, you can access up-to-the-minute weather data and NEXRAD radar graphics from your map screen to stay ahead of the storm. Plus, when you add on XM NavTraffic, you can find out where the trouble spots are and route around them.

Go Your Own Way
Pick your path and hit the streets. The zūmo 665 is ready to go right out of the box. It’s preloaded with City Navigator NT street maps, which offers full coverage mapping for the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico, and millions of points of interest (POIs) that include motels, restaurants, gas stations, ATMs and more. In addition, the zūmo 665 offers 3-D building view and lane assist with junction view to show you more of your surroundings and make sure that you’ll know the right lane at the right time. The zūmo 665 also comes standard with a digital fuel gauge so you can keep track of how many miles you have left before it’s time to get gas.

Keep In Touch
The zūmo 665 features Bluetooth wireless technology so you can stay in touch while you’re on the move. With it, you’re free to safely talk on your phone without having to remove your gloves or helmet. Simply connect your zūmo 665 to your Bluetooth-enabled headset or helmet and then pair with your cellphone to make and receive calls on the go. You can also call POIs through the zūmo’s Bluetooth interface — perfect for last-minute change of plans or a quick pit stop for food and fuel. And with spoken street name functionality, the zūmo 665 will also transmit voice prompts to your headset for wireless and worry-free navigation.

Stay Entertained
Have a long ride planned? The zūmo 665 is your all-in-one entertainment center. Featuring an on-board MP3 player and advanced Bluetooth A2DP technology, you’ll enjoy crisp and clean stereo sound, including XM radio (subscription required), with your compatible headset. The motorcycle mount also comes standard with a headphone jack so you can connect to your headphones or helmet headset and microphone. It’s also loaded with a picture viewer for taking friends and family on the road, and it supports audiobooks to help break up the miles when you’re in for the long haul.

Plan and Share Your Rides
Found the perfect backroad to share with your riding buddies? Or perhaps you’re planning a cross-country trip and looking to avoid as much interstate as possible. With the zūmo 665’s powerful trip planning tools, you can create your custom routes on your computer and then transfer your saved route directly to your zūmo. And when you’ve returned home, you can review your rides in Google Earth. In addition, microSD card expansion makes it easy for sharing routes and adding storage.
