GPS Upgrade Thoughts
Thinking of replacing my two Garmin Zumo 550's with something newer. These are from 2007 / 2008 and getting a little long in the tooth. I do use the traffic and weather features, therefore I'd like to retain those functions. I have Lifetime Maps so they are up to date. I am partial to Garmin so staying with that, so here are my questions:
1. If you have done a similar swap, please comment on which unit you went with and why.
2. Is the change really that much of a change and worth it? NexRad better than cartoon weather.
3. Would I be better off just using my iPhone with Google Maps and streaming XM as I have the online account?
4. Currently, the Zumo is run through my J&M 2003.
Again, thoughts on this since not a cheap. Wondering the GPS is the best option given the capabilities of our phones and such now.
