New TomTom Rider V2

Ran across this today:

Here is more:

Not sure when it will be available in the U.S., but it looks like a pretty decent alternative to the Garmin.

You can always try to find a 2730 too. Has everything the 2820 does, minus the Bluetooth, and comes with the XM antenna. You have to buy separate with the 2820 and Zumo. You should still be able to find some new ones out there for under $500.

good post. never heard of the 2730 and don't particularly need bluetooth (in its current state).
