Zumo (550) vs TomTom (rider) info request
I have a (old) Magellan Meridian Color, want to update it my display is almost unusable in bright (Florida) sunlight
I saw a TomTom Rider the other day, the display was better than my Magellan, but not as good as I was expecting.
Has anyone compared the Rider to the (Garmin) Zumo (550?) in bright sunlight??
How is the weather and traffic information brought into the GPS, from what I gather the Garmin has to have another ($250) receiver / antenna?
Is that true? and is it about the same cost with the Rider?
How about Blue tooth and headsets?
How do the functions compare between the new Rider and the Zumo, software? reliability? Cell phone support?
I have been happy with my old GPS when I can see it (night and evening), I am leaning to the Garmin as a replacement, as it appears to have a better following in the US? Though if I have to buy a $250+ receiver for one and not the other (for weather and traffic), then that will be another item to consider.
Thanks for any input on this.....
