xm gps suggestions

I'm very frustrated with my Garmin Street Pilot series. I'm on my second one and both have gone "haywire"!

Looking for an inexpensive option. Of course I have the "hockey puck" xm satellite antenna that I use with the Street Pilot 2730. They're expensive and I'd like to keep it.

Any suggestions as to what to get that would keep the costs down?

Re: xm gps suggestions

That is not just an antenna it is the xm receiver as well. It is just controlled by the 2730. That is why it was $$$. I am not sure but I think it will also work with the 376 series.

Re: xm gps suggestions

I've got a 2730 with an unused xm antenna. The 2730 works great. I love the 2730 but going with a Zumo 600 for the GTL because 2730 won't fit in the dash. I'd like to sell both as a "package" if anyone is interested. Also the bracket would be included.

Re: xm gps suggestions

I believe the puck is the same even for the Zumo series. Can someone confirm or correct this?
