2820 or 2730

Looking a tthe differnces between the 2. I know the 2730 comes with the gxm antenna and the 2820 doesnt. The 2820 has bluetooth which isnt a big deal since I cant use it on the LT anyway but my intercom has a plug in for the phone. What am I getting in a 2820 over the 2730 other than bluetooth? I have found a refurb 2730 for 380 dollars. Not bad since it includes the 200 dollar xm antenna. I had a zumo 550 on my RT and loved it but never really used the mp3 player or had a need for a built in battery. Will I be disapointe not going with a zumo?

I don't think the 2730 comes with the antenna, at least mine didn't.

The 2720 doesnt but the 2730 does. Maybe you have a 2720? otherwise they shafted you.

My 2730 did NOT come with an antenna - it was a special package deal from Getfeetwet.com that "debundled" the antenna to reduce the price on the unit (less than half the cost at the time).

The box still indicates that it includes a GXM30, however...

My 2730 did come with the antenna. It is supposed to be packaged with it from the factory.
