Question 2730 question

Are there any problems with the 2730? I know it's been discontinued but refurbished units are available with 4 year warranties for $375.00 and it comes with an XM antenna (unlike the Zumo). Looks like it does everything the Zumo does without buying the XM antenna, except for bluetooth cellphone operation.

Re: 2730 question

The biggest problem is delamination of the protective film on the screen. Be careful with what you clean it with. It will also get humidity behind that film that looks like a big orb till it airs out. One of the speculations is the mount covers a breather hole.

I'd get another one (and I have).

Grif,
If I remeber correctly you have the 2720. Is that right? Also, what com system are you using? I've found a factory refurbished 2720 for $185.00. Does the 2720 have the same delamination problem?

No, it's the 2730. You made me go look. I don't know if the 20 has the same prob, or not.

I'm using the Autocom Pro M. It has the wind detector that sticks out of the helmet that adjusts volume according to ambient wind noise. It lives under the seat.

Re: 2730 question

I have a 2720
had some problems with a "cloud" caused by moisture
(In Oregon we have to ride in the rain)
Garmin replaced once out of warranty...the second time they said put it inside for a few days if it doesn't fix it we'll replace.
I put it inside......it fixed the problem, then I applied a $5 screen protector...
No more problems...................for the last year.
If you do get a 2730, make sure the XM antenna is included as some folks are selling the antenna seperately.................

Re: 2730 question

I have had the 2730 for 3 years. Only problem is the moisture fogging some times. Once it gets the sun on it, it dries out OK. XM works great.
