I have had my Zumo 550 since July 2007. Current Firmware is 4.60 downloaded yesterday. Other Software Versions are as follows:

Audio Version: 1.90
GPS SW Version: 2.90
Bluetooth SW Version: 3.40
(are these current and what does SW refer to anyway)

I want to buy an upgrade or new map syatem for my Unit and had ordered the 2009 Version but someone sent me a PM stating that a 2010 Version will be out in April '09 so I cancelled my order. Is this info correct?

Garmin is showing a New MapSource CD on their web site but there is no date associated with this. It is also priced at $99.00.
To be frank, there are so many maps, software and the like that it is getting confusing for me to keep my 2007 Zumo up to date.

Any help and detailed explaination anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.:confused:

Also, what is the current Honda Built in GPS map now available?:confused:

Zumo forums...

Hey Steve,
I can't really help you directly. (I'm a little electronically challenged)
I have a Zumo 550 also.
I think the forms might be a help to ya though...

:agree:

The folks on that forum are as knowledgeable as the folks here. You might also want to try and contact Garmin Customer Service directly and get the straight information. I do believe though that the new map set comes out in the Spring every year. Good luck on your quest. Ride safe.

Steve, here's what I've found.

Goto Garmin site and choose <maps><buy maps>
Go through the routine of telling them which Garmin you own, etc.
When the next page comes up, select the 'View Map' tab. That will bring up detailed maps and you will see the version number at the top.

Also, I've noticed in the past, that Garmin will release new maps in April or May, but they will not be available to buy until June.

I bought the City Nav NT 2009 from http://www.gpscity.com/item-garmin-update-city-navigator-nt-2009-north-america-dvd/udcnusa9nt.htm
Installation was very simple, mostly just connect the GPS to the computer then insert the DVD and follow the prompts. Much easier than what I experienced in the past w/2610. :thumbup:

Price was $52.95 (about $59 w/shipping). Even though the 2010 may be out in the spring, I went ahead and updated due to the discounted price. If I get the 2010 update I'll prob wait until the end of the year for the discount. ;)

Good Luck!
