Great price on new Garmin Motorcycle GPS

If you order by November 20 you can get the new Garmin Zumo 550 motorcycle specific GPS for $711 instead of the $999 that most people charge. You order it at www.anchorexpress.com. And if you use coupon code # XBM349Z when you place your order you'll get free next day shipping, which normally costs $19. I'm so excited. I preordered my Zumo 550 during the summer and I just got an email saying they shiped it out today. Should be here tomarrow. I can't wait!

Congrats! I cant wait to hear your review. I am really interested in the Zumo, but since I have 4 other Garmins, I will wait for this one to mature a bit. See how it holds up in the real world, getting beat up by real riders.

Let us know how it works out for you

FYI the manual is now online.

Looks real nice with a RAM style mounting system. My only issue at this time is you can't turn off auto rerouting. Many people in the Blog have complained about it so I am hoping there will be a firmware update that will fix that.

It must be because you preordered. I can't get the price down from $999 on the Anchor Express site.

I did see the price the day it was posted. Now it has gone up.

They still have the 2820 for $718 (Price Reduced Until November 20th). This may be the better choice as I have seen a few some neg reviews of the Zumo.
