Garmin Zumo 550/500 Motorcycle GPS Sat Nav
The ZŨMO series motorcycle navigators are available in different versions and price ranges. The basic operation are the same but differences can be found in the extra features and functions such as bluetooth or MP3 and the supplied accessories.
A full list of features, “what’s in the box” and functions can be found on: Version comparisons on www.Garmin.com
Note that ‘branded’ Zumo versions, currently available from BMW, Honda, Suzuki and Harley-Davidson/Buell have their own different feature sets and do differ from standard Garmin units. These units may look very similar to existing Garmin Zũmo’s but they do have different functions or specifications to non-branded Garmin Zũmo’s. For example BMW and Honda Zũmo’s are not compatible with the normal Garmin Firmware! However, the Harley-Davidson/Buell branded model is compatible with the standard firmware. [more info]

New resource (Jun2008) by ECM (Ton) of ZumoForums & ukGSer ECM has put together a wikispaces website for gathering information about Zumo’s. This is also the place for FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (and answers!) from Zumoforums.
The GarminZumo WikiSpaces Website is continuing to build and serves as the Zumo forum’s “knowledgebase”. Anyone can view these WikiSpaces (without registering) but you can also become a writer/editor yourself if you like!! (you have to register at WikiSpaces). Together we can build and maintain the worlds best Zumo resouce. Please help in creating the GarminZumo WikiSpaces at the Garmin Zumo WikiSpaces Website
