Garmin zumo question
I have a zumo 450. It is the third zumo I've owned. The first one failed within the first 90 days and was replaced by Garmin. The second had the motorcycle cradle short contact points on the bottom of the unit. It was one month out of warranty, so no luck getting it replaced or fixed for free. So I bought another one for my motorcycle.
I have a Garmin 205W for my car. It is much faster acquiring satellites than my zumo 450. I've tried all the suggestions I've found on the zumo forum and it still is slow to acquire satellites. Now the screen is acting up. It frequently asks me if I'm sure I want to delete all user data. I've cleaned the screen, especially around the bezel. Nothing.
I'm impressed with the 205W but not the zumo 550/450. I see Garmin has new zumo units, the 660/665 and the 220. Before I take the chance and replace the now ailing 450, I wanted to ask for impressions and opinions of the 660 or the new 220. I don't care if the unit plays mp3 or has bluetooth. I do care about the basic function and long term reliability.
Based on experience, are there any opinions on the new 660 or 220?
