What kind of navigator do you use!

Post by Evelakes » Tue Jul 24, 2007 6:52 am

I'm using the Garmin Zumo on my XX. Loving it, easy to use and easy
to carry along.
With mapsource i can make endless trips all over europe, than upload
them to the Zumo and away we go.
Also in the car i use the Zumo with the extra cradle it's easy to switch.

I have a extra high ram mount so it's easy to concentrate on the road and
the Zumo.
The TMC antenna gives clear information about the road traffic along my
trip so i can avoid major traffic jams.
The only things i tripped along while using the Zumo =
* The rubber that shields the connection plate is poor quality and has
teared.
* The software has some bugs in it, but no serious ones.
* The volume is to weak (not for bluetooth users)
* It's to bad there's no button on the main menu for using the MP3
menu.
* There's no mute button for volume control.
But than again it's the first Zumo they have made and i think they did a
great job at Garmin.

I'm using a Garmin 2610.

After some trouble installing the latest upgrade (something with unreadable road information) It works fine.

I have a simple ram mount, and on the oposite site of Everlakes.
I'll shoot some pictures this evening to complement this bit of text.

I know it's an older model.. But traffic jams do not interest me on a bike. (I'll swirl thrue the whole bunch) and I'm trying not to stare at the navigation because I've got the speakers mounted in my BounceCap (BUTSMUTS translated into english)

2610 for me, and since I have installed all the Zumo extra's myself (phone & MP3) and since the 2610 has proved very stable will keep this et-up for a while :wink:

The only missing part is the battery option and not being able to play with the 2610 when having lunch on a trip.
