October 1 2008, 67,255km

Sold the StreetPilot 2610. I liked it very much, but I know now the latest models (Zumo, Rider 2) are better. In France I noticed that Erwin with his TomTom never hesitated when deciding which road to take, while the instructions of the StreetPilot were sometimes dubious. The 2610 uses 2D navigation, while the TomTom and Zumo have both 2D and 3D. It seems the 3D works better. Besides that the 2610 now and then looses the GPS signal, while nowadays the navigation systems are more sensitive to these signals. So I wanna buy a newer model. I'm considering the TomTom Rider 2 and the Garmin Zumo. One way or another I prefer the latter. One of the reasons is the route-creating software Garmin has, and TomTom hasn't (is dependent of others).

I agree, Get the Zumo, I have a TT Rider and think that had it not been for the users (customers) writing software for it, it would be useless, plus the mount is rubbish (I'm on the third one now)

The Garmin has far better features and is hard wired, far better for bluetoothing the phone, the Rider bluetooth phone connection doesn't work properly.

Oh Yeah, if you haven't already, get an Autocom so you get an excellent stereo connection
