Lowrance XOG vs. Zumo 550
I'm very curious about the Lowrance XOG, for both on-bike and in-car duty. I've been dreaming of a Zumo 550 but the price is just a bit more than I'm willing to spend right now. But sometimes it's not the price by itself, it's the "what do you get for the price" equation of value. Is the Zumo's features and capabilities worth $700? My impression so far is that it's not. Everything I read about the Zumo indicates it's a fantastic unit, but is it worth the price?
Although the XOG doesn't have the same features and capabilities of the motorcycle-specific Zumo 550, it provides all the core functionality one needs in a bike-mounted GPS unit at about one third the cost. Is it a better value?
Does anyone own the XOG? What do you think of the unit? Inquiring minds want to know.
