I have StreetPilot 2820 and that thing won't break... I will buy a Zumo though when StreetPilot finally breaks....
https://buy.garmin.com/shop/compare...15000&compareProduct=414&compareProduct=13424:thumbup: I have heard a few times that the Garmin Zumo 550 and 660 are the hot ticket items for GPS capability on our bikes, and for using in cars as well,
What are the Pros and Cons of these two models, I need a system with all of the USA, Canada, Hawaii, and Alaska in it with good maps,
The Nuvi 550 will do that. You may want to post your question as a separate thread - you might get more responses, but before you do that use the Google custom search function near the top of the page (in the centre). There is lots of discussions on "the best GPS".Not to hijack but I am looking for a GPS as well and have looked at the garmins but never owned one ... One feature that I don't see talked about very much but I would like to have is the ability to create routes.
I would like to be able to map out a ride(route) on my PC and maybe upload it to the GPS and have it guide me along that route without doing any of its own routing ...
My reasoning is that all of these units try to find the best(fastest or most direct) route. I on the other hand (when riding the bike at least) sometimes want a more roundabout route. I still want turn by turn directions as I ride but I just want to dictate the route ...
I know that this is available somehow but I dont know what units lend themselves to this type of use the best ..
Any opinions would be greatly appreciated ..
Really? Why not the 660?the Garmin Zumo 550 is the definitive gps for scoots in my view.
Yes, I agree with you. 550 is the 3.5'' format vs. 660 which is the 4.3'' with the new technologies you mentioned.Really? Why not the 660?
Were I to buy today, it'd be between the 220 and 660. The 550 seems like old tech being phased out.
