Time to upgrade my GPS?

I currently have a Garmin 2730 which still works fine. I use it along with the XM radio while I ride. I'm wondering whether it's worth the upgrade to the Zumo 550, or even the 665? Besides the larger screen, is there much of a difference in how the units operate or the detail that you see?

I have looked into this and I dont think it is unless you want "bluethooth" they are a bit faster but basically the same, I also run a 2730 apaft from the screen fogging up It goes great
