3. the unit is not available yet
Perhaps #3 is why I was thinking I wouldn't give it a look!
The speaker had an excellent final slide, which summarized all the various Garmin units. I do not have a copy of that info but I'm sure they'd be glad to share it. For my purposes I'm thinking the 378/478 are perfect. They are identical except the 378 includes inland waterway maps and the 478 includes coastal waterway maps. (keep in mind this unit is intended for car or boat...)
The 378/478 is $1300 list; cyclegadgets sells it for $1049. The XM receiver/antenna is an additional $250.
The Street Pilot products have a touch screen, a feature some people like.
Guess I don't have any negatives on the Zumo after all, except that it's not available yet. Smaller screen, perhaps?
