I've Had Better GPS's

D. Mahony "Dr. Dave", Amazon
18 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought the Zumo two years ago for about $400. I bought the gps, the case, and the mounting gear with a power cable. I don't use this unit much since I don't ride my motorcycle much but over the years I've noticed some serious issues. For one, the maps are terrible. Whole streets are missing and these are not new streets. The Garmin that I have in my car is six years old now and has better maps. The directions are not so good either.

Good luck on this one

Bill Moore, Amazon
7 June 2011
  • Summary: So the unit came in a timely manner. Downhill fron there. Updating/unlocking software/unit is a time-consumeing and confusing process, requireing about three sets of an infinite range of numbers. There goes two hours. Spacers were not included with the basemount, so that had to be jury-rigged with lock washers. Will they hold? Another hour.

not what I was looking for

hoot, Amazon
22 December 2010
  • Summary: This unit uses a usb plug for external powering. It is designed for motorcycle use. The usb plug in is located on the back of the unit and I don't see any way it can keep water out of the pulgin. So I returned it and got the 660 instead. If you ride in the rain it's not for you.

Better Than Previous Editions

Steven Metz, Amazon
6 June 2010
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a Zumo 450 that was badly flawed from the day I got it. I annoyed me to have to spend so much money to replace something a year and half old, but I needed it desperately. Cons --The screen is really small --Unlike previous generations, the controls are all touch screen. I liked the real buttons on the 450 --There is only one view in the trip computer.

rubbish volume

evo, Amazon
8 September 2011
  • Summary: we have had the Garmin Zumo 220 for about 2 weeks but have yet to find a blue tooth head set that will give enough volume at speed on a bike Garmin have been no help at all, we have tried several different blue tooth kits but all no good, have contacted sonic communications in Birmingham and they were extremely helpful but only do hard wired ear pieces wich sadly the 220 cannot accomodate, i am bitterly dissapointed in this device which is a lot of money i think that its...

Could do better

SupernalMan, Amazon
26 April 2011
  • Summary: It is hard to review an electronic device these days without comparing it to something Apple might have made. If this is the current benchmark then this product does not fare at all well - being slow, bulky, with a low resolution blurry screen and poor UI. Despite these shortcomings, once a route has been entered and calculated, it does do the job of a sat nav reasonably well - including nice features like lane guidance, configurable display, speed limits info (not...

Zwiespältig

Kreissparkasse Recklinghausen, Amazon
31 December 2012
  • Summary: Das Zumo 220 hinterläßt bei mir einen zwiespältigen Eindruck.Die Verarbeitung ist ganz ordentlich.Doch scheint die verbaute CPU den anforderungen nicht gewachsen zu sein.Die Grafische Darstellung hängt oft hinterher,selbst wenn auf nidriegster Detailstufe navigiert wird.Das mitgelieferte Programm Map Source eignet sich sehr gut zur Routenpanung.

Garmin Zumo 220 - Erwartungen nicht erfüllt

Hermann Rabe, Amazon
11 September 2011
  • Summary: Trotz guter Bewertung der Motorradzeitungen sind mir Mängel aufgefallen: 1. Kein TMC. 2. Lange Rechenzeit. 3. Im Handbuch steht was von Alternativ-Routenvorschau - im Gerät nicht zu finden. Wenn ich eine andere Route wähle, die erfahrungsgemäß schneller ist, versucht mich das Gerät 30km auf seinen Vorschlag zurückzuholen. 4. Höhenangabe über 1000m nur noch in km - lächerlich. 5. Im Gebirge sind Restfahrstrecke und Fahrgeschwindigkeit stark schwankend - Rechenfehler?

Zu wenig Navi fürs Geld

ikarus, Amazon
22 August 2011
  • Summary: Da mein billiges Navigon 20 Plus den Geist aufgegeben hat, habe ich mich als Motorradfahrer für ein motorrad- und autotaugliches Navigationsgerät entschieden. Und bin beim Zumo 220 gelandet. Es funktioniert. Und es ist motorradtauglich (wasserdicht, Tourenfunktionen, bedienbar mit Handschuhen etc.).

Für TMC unbrauchbar

B500, Amazon
22 August 2011
  • Summary: Allen die an der TMC Funktionalität interessiert sind, kann ich nur dringend nahelegen den entsprechenden Garmin-Forum Eintrag zu lesen. Einfach mal nach >>zumo 220 tmc Absturz<< suchen. - Die Verarbeitungsqualität ist OK - Die Bedienung ist zunächst intuitiv, einige Funktionen sind aber versteckt - Die Routenführung ist, wie auch bei anderen Garmin Geräten, gewöhnungsbedürftig Somit nur 2 Sterne wegen der Augenwischerei mit TMC und dem in der Summe schlechten...
