Looking at the road is overrated...
I usually glance down at it. Not really any different than glancing at the radio or speedo. And if I really wanted to I could load the Garmin with music and play it through the truck speakers (aux port) and I'm sure the Garmin girl would say "turn now" to help. Haven't actually tried to use the music feature on the Garmin yet.
And about eyes off the road. My DD has the sat radio sitting in the cup holder. I really don't like things on the windshield although the Garmin gets mounted on the window in the DD.
