550 to 665

Hey All;

just found out that my beloved Zumo 550 is no longer supported by garmin. The buttons are coming off and no way to have it repaired.
Im thinking the 665 is the best bet BUT reviews are all over the place.
I use it constantly with the XM radio couple hours a day.
I like the idea of the bigger screen, but some say its impossible to see in the sunlight. I live in Florida, we have a lot of sun.
Also do I still need a dongle to hear the XM, as on the 550, or did garmin solve that issue.?
Any other options besides the 665? But I love my XM and I ride in ALL weather 35 to 40k a year.


45 years riding and still more places to see.
