you can program screens as you like,
quick GPS pick up signal at the initial start
it has great battery life, turns of screen when you stop after several minutes, when you move the bike it starts right away.
I haven't use the Bluetooth features yet, not that I need it,
only think I would criticize is that you don' get text or phone call warnings,
there is a new version coming up soon IGS620 it would have that feature,
Thanks for the in-depth review. My friend who bought one lives about 40 miles away, I haven't been able to see it in person, and our season is coming to an end so I'm not likely to get many updates for a while. Your info is extremely helpful.

A similar Garmin costs 3x to 4x the price, competition is great for all of us.
