Zumo on sale at Best Buy- $539

Good Morning All,

Yesterday. I saw on the ADVRIDER forum that Best Buy had the Zumo 550 for an insanely low $539. After leaving Sunday morning meeting of the LIBMW club, I headed for the closest Best Buy. Sure enough, the price was right however, they were out of them so I had to go to another one not too far away to get my new Zumo!

It gets better- I signed up for their credit card and got an instant $20 coupon! This big bad boy only was only $519 + Tax. That's a savings of over $160 bucks!

I don't want to take all of the plastic off of the LT today. So I'll run them through my tank bag for now until I can bury them under the tupperware and into my fuse box.

NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yup, but tell them that other stores are marking them down. They can check the inventory and see that for themselves. They may have missed the markdown order.

I bought mine at the Patchogue NY store.

Re: Zumo on sale at Best Buy- $539

The Web is the web wherever you look at it.

Fine, don't take the 5 minute ride to Best Buy. I guess you don't want to save over a hundred bucks on a Zumo.

Sometimes, you actually have to leave your house to experience the world! Take a chance! Come on, you know you wanna!

Local sales- Best Buy matches prices! Duh! They will especially match a price in their own chain!

Be a nay sayer, I don't care. I's gots mines!

Now it's time for another obnoxious Happy Dance

Rob meant nothing by that. If you knew him you would know he was just exhibiting continued enthusiasm over getting a nice farkle for a good price. Nothing personal was intended.

Re: Zumo on sale at Best Buy- $539

TVNAV.com has a limited supply of the 2820 for $485.00. The remanufactured 2820 is $645.00. Didn't check on why the reman is more but maybe it comes with additional components.

The Zumo 550 is $710.00 or a reman for $620.00. I bought a reman SPIII from them years ago and it is still working fine today. The remans come with a full, as new, warranty.

Re: Zumo on sale at Best Buy- $539

Just thought that I would pass along my experience yesterday when I tried to buy a 550 from an on-line seller that I found using this site for $529 - http://www.everyprice.com/category.asp
The Company is called Camera Addict and located in NY City. According to the site they have 4,800+ reviews. If you read the fine print they import occasionally products that are not originally for North America. Having understood this I read the product description and there was no mention that this was the case for the Zumo. I recieved a call today from one of their sales people who wanted to know if I want the ENGLISH upgrade as the one I ordered was in Japanese! As you can appreciate I told him to cancel the order. He tried to tell me that they were an international importer blah blah, and I told him that their add was misleading and he told me that the order was cancelled.

Re: Zumo on sale at Best Buy- $539

I just got (today) a closeout zumo550 at the Mayfield Heights, OH Best Buy for $449. And they took the $50 coupon that was linked at the ADVRIDER forum. There was one more left (besides mine). I just about pooped when I saw this was for real. The first local Best buy I went to had it for $730 on close out. I guess your just have to hit the right one. If you can get them to price match the Mayfield Heights, OH store you may be in business.

Re: Zumo on sale at Best Buy- $539

Man, I know I'm not the sharpest spoon in the drawer, but what's the deal with these Zumo XXXs? I'm totally confused regarding the numbering system Garmin is using - you'd think a higher number unit would be better'n a lower number unit! Kinda like an F750 is honkin' better than an F150. I do need to donate my Streetpilot I to Garmin's museum and git a better unit (SP I barely covers the county I live in!!), butt I have model-number overload. Guess I'll ride on you guy's coat tails when the banker holds up the flash cards!

Thanks Tony, that was worth the 100 mile drive up there and back.
I got the last one, besides the show model.

I agree with you , Dick...well, not the part about you not being the sharpest spoon ...I have a StreetPilot III (2 more I's than you), yea it's slow but it gets me where I want go. If I was going to let loose my $600 tax incentive check, it would'nt be on the Zumo. I also have a Nuvi' 350 that works great on my charter bus trips.

I thought we were supposed to get $600. But received a letter in the mail saying that I will be getting 300 in the near future

Unhappy Re: Zumo on sale at Best Buy- $539

went to north lake mall best buy in charlotte, nc. today, they had at least 5 of the zumo 550's, however when I asked about the reduced price, and the $50 coupon which I had, they would NOT honor the price, stating they do not have to honor any price from another best buy out of state.

Re: Zumo on sale at Best Buy- $539

I got one at the Crabtree Valley Best Buy in Raleigh, NC for $544.95. Have them honor that price, since it is in-state. They only had one at the Durham, NC store. All of the rest of the Best Buys around Raleigh only have the display models.

I just learned from the BMW dealer service manager that you can wire the Zumo to the BMW GPS connector on the R1200RT. It is located in between the front forks.

I am going to hook mine up, as soon as I get the Touratech mounts that I ordered.

Re: Zumo on sale at Best Buy- $539

Well, it's not a Zumo but it has all the same features except for left hand buttons. I bought a Garmin 2820 from www.buyeretail.com for 423.00.

I just looked and they still have them for 430.00. Very nice folks on the phone too, called em right up cause I had a question. The owner of the company answered the phone. Not bad, could have just caught em on a good day but it's worth a try.

Re: Zumo on sale at Best Buy- $539

Sorry for the rather basic question, but would someone educate me as to the difference between the 2820 and the 550? They appear to have the same features?

Re: Zumo on sale at Best Buy- $539

Doug,

They are close. The biggest thing is the Zumo has a battery so it can be used off the bike. Supposedly the screen on the Zumo is "glove Friendly" but I though the screen on my 2720 worked fine with gloves. Zumo may have a faster processor and more sensitive receiver, (someone check me on those two).

Re: Zumo on sale at Best Buy- $539

If you don't need all the bells and whistles, the Zumo 450 is going for $399 on Amazon.com. They're asking $679 for the 550.
