I thought this was something new.
Nah, even my 07 Road Glide had an option for a rudimentary GPS which displayed on the radio screen. I think they had that option as far back as '04, but I'm not sure. And given that riders have added Garmin or Tom-Tom GPS units to their bikes since around 2005, the touch screen technology is hardly new.

Touch screen would not be good for me as I always wear gloves. :?

This whole thread is supposed to based on personal opinion. :wink: Bikes have been praised and trashed solely on subjective reasons such as how it looks. I know I have failed a bike solely on its mfuglyness. :lol:

Sure, but on a common feature in it's class? That's like hating on a BMW because of the leather seats!

A lot of gloves are actually touchscreen compatible once you break them in. Even if they aren't, you can easily modify them with a couple stitches of conductive thread to make them work.
