Zumo Apple

The Zumo 550 works fine with an Apple Computer. The only piece missing from the puzzle is the Map Source software which, for the moment in NOT MAC compatible. This means that you cannot build a route on your Mac and load it into the Zumo. You can update the firmware of the Zumo, transfer Mp3's, screen splashes and any routes downloaded from Zumoconnect into the Zumo.

I have spoken with Garmin a couple of times and they assure me that an OS X version of Mapsource is in the works, hopefully by year end it will be available.

I hope that this helps.

I run Windows XP under bootcamp on my Intel Macbook. Mapsource should also run under Parallels.
