Garmin Zumo - 500 or 550?
OK, I'm in the market for a GPS, I think I'm settled on the Garmin Zumo, but 500 or 550, that's the burning question.
The only difference I can see from the Specs, is the 550 will talk to you, while the 500 it's just mapping.
I know taking your eye's off the road to look at your satnav is not a great idea, and using the spoken word as a means of direction is probably best, but there is quite a big price difference.
When I've used satnavs in the past ( I do like my paper maps) I've found them a bit of a pain as they seem to interupt my music, or the conversation I'm having with the other half. Should I stump up the extra £££?
Looking for personal experience rather than personal opinion from someone who doesn't use a GPS. Thanks all.
