Question on zūmo 350LM

Postby ERC Scott » Mon Jul 09, 2012 1:28 pm

Anyone have first-hand experience with Garmin's zūmo 350LM? I think it's been out for a month or so. I've come to appreciate the lane assist feature on my car GPS, and this zūmo has that feature and more. Thanks. Scott

Yeah, I was wondering how much the XM model will be. :shock:

I've only read about one guy up here in Canada who received one just before the Holiday weekends. During his breif time with it, he's had a lot of system lock ups requiring a power cycle to get it running again.

I think everyone has had the same sentiment as Tony....seven hundred beans with no music options. :?

I wo; need to replace my 2730 soon. What I don't get about Garmin and the M/C units is how can they make $200 and $300 units that have lifetime maps and traffic, we spend $600 to $700 and only one unit has LM and still no traffic and no MP3 player. I know they are built to a tougher standard, but really. :roll:
