my nuvi 750 has a built in MP3 player... just load up the music on the SD card. I assume the zumo has the same feature built in?

Yes the Zumo does and yes WAY OVERPRICED just for a damn antenna

It does. I have the Zumo 550 and I regularly use MP3 player on the road. Not sure if the 450 has it.

As far as the high cost of the XM antenna - it used to be possible to buy it for around $200... I don't know what are the prices right now. Look around.

I've been leaning towards a Zumo 550 & just waiting for the right deal. Does anybody know if you can use other brand XM antennas with the Zumo?

One caveat about zumo 550: it does not support stereo bluetooth. So you can use mono bluetooth to make phone calls / listen to directions and wired headphones to listen to the music in stereo. There are hacks to make stereo bluetooth available, but they all cost money.

Any hacks available for my nuvi 760 available to play music over and dirctions over bluetooth, I have this nice Scala rider headset installed in my helmet and my GPS only connects to phones and not headsets.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

I think so. Basically, such a hack is just connecting an external stereo Bluetooth module. Something like that: http://www.cruisercustomizing.com/de...mpaign=froogle

The tutorials can be found here: http://www.benchmarkhelmets.com/tutorials/

Ooops, the tutorials link is semi-wrong. It's mostly for the Camos headset. But there's the link for the video about pairing Camos with both zumo and stereo adapter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gd1au...eature=related

Finally pulled the trigger on a Zumo 550 & GXM30 yesterday so I was wondering who uses XM NavWeather & XM NavTraffic?

I'll use the XM radio for sure but is the Weather & Traffic package worth the extra subscription costs. It looks like it would be cool...
