I have the Garmin NUVI 550. Less than $200, waterproof and OK for motorcycle use. Battery lasts 4 hours but better to install a power supply from the MC battery. Works great!

I modified the license bracket - see my post http://www.cbr250.net/forum/cbr250-appearance-modifications/3805-free-tail-tidy.html

Next step will be to cut off the fender below the license plate.
