Several people on here have the car model gps but that seems to big and would be easy to destroy in a crash and expensive. Mine sits on my bars with a handlebar mount and it's gone down with me a few times but it's always safe and sound. I also use mine in the motorhome hooked up to my laptop to keep me on track......

both will run on 12VDC external power.
Some folks just love the Garmin E series models. Hooking these units up for external power requries extra hardware since they run on 3VDC. For anybody needing reading glasses the small screen is difficult to see while riding.
The best customer service for GPS on bikes is the folks at Cycoactive.
Give them a call and tell them you need help spending your girlfriend's money.
If cost is not a problem ask for the GPSMAP 176 with the color screen.
