I have an iway350 right now and although I like it I would like the ability to plan a trip on the laptop and transfer to the GPS. I am also looking for the ability to see phone calls coming in. I have been trying to compare the 2820 to the 550 and I see very few differences in the two. Screen size is one and price is the other. Resistance to fuel is really not a factor I consider important.

Can anyone out there tell me from personal experience of using the two why I should pay twice as much for the zumo versus the 2820.

Thanks in advance. Mike
According to the Garmin site, the 2820 is a discontinued model. Is there something that supercedes it? I'm not quite redy to but a GPS yet but was looking at the 550 seriously.

I upgraded from a 2730 to a 2820 for the Bluetooth feature and I have been very happy with my decision. The price difference between the 550 and the 2820 would give me pause. Based on that fact alone, I would pick the 2820. It's a good unit. You won't be disappopinted.
To install the 2820, it would probably need that same setup as the 550. It seems to me that it required the Cellset and a few other mods to make it work well with the headset.
