Would be interested to hear feedback from any Zumo owners on it's pros and cons.
Could you elaborate on that Fred. I have never had a GPS so I don't know anything about the weather feature. I would however love to have doppler radar, if it does not have that what does it have?Fred H. said:When looking at the specs, I really do like the Zumo and think it will be a great GPS for use on a motorcycle.
I just wish they had added the NEXRAD doppler radar screens to the weather data package. That is the about only thing it is missing.
You can say that again. Being able to look down and actually see where the storm and rain is, and ride around it makes it worth it.motorcyclemom40 said:Nexrad radar, the next best thing to sliced bread. I wouldn't be without my 376c Sheila
I agree with you in the price. It is a little pricey but if you get the xm radio and nexrad together for $30, then it is not as bad. I personally would like to see if for about half that to be more resonable to me. But I do not even have a GPS. I think my pet weather rock does as good as the local weather channel.Fred H. said:You can say that again.

Next time you find yourself riding in the middle of a terrible rain event, ask yourself how much you would be willing to spend to have been able to see it in advance and go around it.
You might be on to something about the early adopters as they may be grandfathered into a price plan we can not get. But I think your pricing is better. Not to hi jack a post, but which ones again have the nexrad. I do not care much for the xm.xxxrider said:I only pay $12.95 for the first XM Radio and $3.99 for the NavTraffic/NavWeather and $6.99 for each additional radio of which I have 4. I don't know how you come up with you amount unless you are including activation fee or they are charging new subscribers alot more than we the early adopters.
The NexRad weather radar package costs $30 a month, NOT $99. I don't know who started that rumor that it was $99 a month, but it is FALSE.xxxrider said:Yes, Jon, I was referring to NavTraffic for $3.99 which includes the basic NavWeather package which includes 5 day forecast, highs & lows, etc. but nothing like NexRad which would overlay doppler radar on you screen and I would like that but not for $99.99/month even if the 2730 could support which it doesn't.
