GPS Question

The wife says she will buy me a GPS for Christmas so I'm trying to determine which one to purchase.

I look on the zumo website and they list a 390lm but I see a lot of retailers selling a 350lm. Can someone please tell me the difference?

Thank you in advance.

Stag556, check out this link it compares the 390LM with the 350LM.
Hope this helps.

Just get an iPhone with Google maps and plug into aux and it gives directions through the speakers. I carry a GPS now as a back up to my phone.

Thanks for the replies. I'll check that link out. As for the phone, that's what I use now but I hate worrying about weather. The plastic bag thing got old real quick since I do a lot of touring.

My next question is can you save rides from Harley ride planner onto an sd card and load them into the zumo? For instance, I'm doing a 10 day ride this coming year, can I load 10 files onto the sd and load each file every day of travel?

It appears as though they are both the exact same thing minus the 390 having Bluetooth for phone calls. The other difference being the 350 has an audio out, which according to the comparison, the 390 does not. I would want that so voice commands can go through the stereo.

Is the 350 discontinued? I don't see it on the zumo site.

I apologize for all the questions, want to get all the facts straight from people who have them before making a big purchase.

That is out of the budget for a gps. The zumo 350 can be had for $550ish on amazon.

Yes , may have to load with the card in the unit though

I don't know about that particular model, but I have the 660 and LOVE IT. I just switched from the Garmin to the Harley version so I could get it to interface with my stereo. Rode in over 7 hours of rain straight one day with the Garmin with no issues. I don't use Harley ride planner. I hate it. I use Garmin Mapsource, but yes, you can upload custom routes.

I have the Harley version of the 550 , and love it , just don't expect the ETA to be correct , and I dread the day that mapsource no longer works , it's coming I'm sure and BaseCamp sucks
