Nuvi 550?

Anyone use the Nuvi 550 on an RT1200? It is much cheaper than the Zumo 450/550 options. Still looking for the best option for my bike.

Re: Nuvi 550?

It doesn't have Turn by turn with streetnames. It doesn't have Bluetooth. It doesn't have an MP3 player. It doesn't have a headphone jack. Hearing the navigation prompts from the speaker while on a bike at much over 25 MPH would be pretty tough. It doesn't have hard buttons.

Get a 550 or a 2820

Greetings CDN

I use the Garmin NUVI 760 on my LT with help from the brilliant people from RAM Mounts. It's superb!
