Zumo 550 is leaving the building, or at least my LT

I have decided to order the new Zumo 350, thus I need to find a new home for my Zumo 550. Included with the 550 is the motorcycle mounting cradle, power cable, and the XM "hockey puck" that adds satellite radio capabilities to the Zumo (separate XM subscription required and not included).

Unit is about a year old, Garmin provided it as a warranty exchange.

PM if interested.

Tony,
Just wondering why you went with the 350 and not the 660? They seem about the same except the 660 plays MP3's, and has a very slightly larger screen.

John,

I briefly had a 660 but ended up returning it to amazon because the screen was difficult to see in daylight and it felt more like a nuvi than a Zumo.

I have my iPod/iPhone connected to my Autocom, so no need to send audio from the Zumo and deal with the volume issues.

I also like the feel of the 350, it feels like a Zumo. :-)

Not sure what all that rubbish is. The 350LM can be ordered from Garmin, Amazon, or a handful of other suppliers. Maybe they just forgot to remove that from their site.
