The Zumo is not very good for making tracks. It is also not configurable. You use it as it comes and that is it. It is primarily made for people that just want to follow what is on it and not have to think or do much configuration, no offense to anyone intended. It is not really meant for offroad, although I did use mine in Laos.mr.jacko wrote: On reading some trip reports I notice that the Zumo 550 is backed up by another GPS. Is there something missing in the Zumo, and so you need backup?
What's the go? I still think the 60 csx is hard to beat.
Talk about overkill. I normally have 3 GPS's running in my truck. The 60CX to collect tracks and waypoints for mapping and a cheap Nuvi to see where I am as my eyes are not the same when I was a bit younger.SilverhawkUSA wrote:
I use the Zumo when I am just touring or in my car due to the larger screen, but if you want to do any mapping, it is not the one to use.
It was possibly my Laos trip report where you saw the Zumo and 76csx on the bike. It was overkill and only because I was trying to get some last minute tracks for Davidfl's new Laos map.
And what about cameras???BignTall wrote: Great responses by Silverhawk and Auke. Auke looks like a bloody Rally navigator with all his gear, the small villages must think you're an alien life form with all the hardware on your dashboard as you're coming through.
Hmmmm could of used the 76CSX's floating capabilities as I proved that the 60 CSX's do sink when the bike gets washed away by rivers when crossing them.
