infuriating to use; impossible to have been designed by a motorcyclist

  • Summary: Let me preface this by saying that I have used this unit--my third, one died and was replaced and the second fell and I had to have it repaired--they sent a refurbished unit-- I have had this unit for three years and ridden with it for 45k miles. Suffice it to say I have driven it around the block. I am very tempted to give it one star. What it does do is tell you where you are.

Great GPS, Poor Quality

  • Summary: The Zumo 550 is the bit of motorcycling kit that I have both come to love and hate at the same time. I admit that Garmin has done a terrific job of making such a feature rich piece of technology. The Zumo has never failed to disappoint me with it's array of bells and whistles, and the usability of the device is great while riding, and while planning rides. However, I have two gripes: First, the routing isn't all that great.

Buggy Software

  • Summary: I've had the Zumo 550 for just over a month now and during that time it has locked-up in the power off mode multiple times while in the cradle. The only way to get the unit to power back on is to remove and re-install the battery using a 2mm hex wrench (not included). The unit does have some nice features but its lack of dependability make it more toy than tool. If you're considering a purchase check out the ZumoForums online.
