    Navigate the Open Road
    zumo 550 comes ready to go right out of the box with preloaded City Navigator NT street maps and a hefty points of interest (POIs) database, including motels, restaurants, fuel, ATMs and more. Simply enter a destination, and zumo takes you there with turn-by-turn voice directions that speak street names. In addition, zumo accepts custom points of interest such as school zones and safety cameras and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs. The 550 also comes with a rechargeable, removable lithium-ion battery a for trip planning or use on foot, and even accepts additional maps.

    Add Traffic, Weather and Radio
    With optional XM subscriptions and an XM antenna, you can check the weather, move ahead of traffic and listen to the radio when you travel with zumo in the U.S. As an alternative, zumo can receive optional TMC traffic alerts (in select cities) when used with a compatible traffic receiver. Simply press a button on the screen, and zumo recalculates your route to avoid traffic tie-ups.

    Talk and Listen Wirelessly
    With zumo 550?s Bluetooth wireless technology, you can talk on the phone safely without removing your gloves or helmet. Connect zumo to your Bluetooth-enabled headset/helmet and cell phone to make and receive hands-free calls. You can even make phone calls to POIs through zumo?s Bluetooth interface. In addition, zumo transmits navigation voice prompts to your headset so you can listen wirelessly.

    Plan Your Trips and Share Your Rides
    zumo 550 makes it easy to plan your next trip and share routes with your riding buddies. Plan trips on your computer before you start. Search for food and fuel stops and local attractions. Then, transfer your route to zumo and go.

    At the end of the day, share your favorite places and rides with other zumo riders, and review your travels in Google Earth. SD card expansion makes it easy for storage and route sharing. Download routes to share with your riding buddies - even load mp3 files to your unit to enjoy tunes on the road. In addition, JPEG picture viewer lets you share photos of your adventures with friends and family.

    Comments about Garmin Garmin zumo 550 Motorcycle GPS:

    I like the fact that I can interchange this from car to motorcycle. I am horrible at finding addresses and this product takes the challenge out of it. I wish it would support a wireless headset so I didn't have a cord connecting me to the unit mounted on my handlebar which I refuse to do.
