I thought that the 2820's expansion slot was SD Card also?JLane said:Ugh, and I was about to pick up a 2820, too. This looks really nice.
I like that it's bike or battery-powered so you can use it on the go. And it uses SD card storage so it's not limited to 2GB like the 2820. Nice. Looks like I just have to wait until October though.
Is there anyone here "in-the-know" that may know if Garmin has some agreement with XM satellite radio?shook sez said:
I'm in the same boat, I was about to spring for a 2820 when I saw this.kl3640 said:I thought that the 2820's expansion slot was SD Card also?
I almost pulled the trigger on a 2820 two weeks ago...glad that my trip was postponed by a month...
Me,....I'd wait.Mudbug said:"Zūmo is equipped with a high-sensitivity GPS receiver, which acquires and maintains a GPS signal even in heavy foliage or “urban canyons” created by city skyscrapers. The navigator also features solid state memory, which mitigates the effects of vibration, shock, cold, heat – and displays and redraws maps faster."
Solid state memory - To me this indicates that it is not a small disk drive like the one in the 2620. Which is a good thing. I quess we will see if the "solid state memory" is removable like an SD card or ComplactFlash card. Garmin's information on this unit does state the users can swap route and waypoints on a SD card with other users. And it does come with a DVD of MapSource.
I'll have to decide whether I should get one when they are released for consumer purchase in October 2006, at approx $1,000.00 or wait for the price to drop.
Hummm?...mattlamotte said:According to Garmin, the zumo won't be out until the 4th Quarter, just in time for the holidays.
