The internal storage on the zumo is very small, about 50MB. However, it takes SD cards and that gives you unlimited expansion. Currently I'm using a 1G SD card and it holds enough music to keep me happy for a couple of weeks.

Yes, it shuffles songs.

SD cards can be had up to 8G.

What Rastoff says is spot on.

As far as numbers, may I add: I'm currently using a 4GB card in my Zumo and have it half filled (about 520 MP3's). If I continue I will double that. So IF you had a 4GB card you could conceivably put about 100 CDs on it. That'd last long enough for just about anybody, huh?! :wink: Alternatively, should you get tired of those (and I admit, you could), then just switch over to your XM radio for virtually unlimited songs, many of which you've never heard. I LOVE my Zumo. (Just did the Bluetooth thing with it over the weekend -- gadZOOKS - FUN!) :D

Speaking for myself, you're welcome. As for the cost, on sale, very roughly anywhere from $15-25 for 1GB to $75 for a 4GB. An 8GB is still in the mid-$200's -- not worth it. Happy storing!

Mike, I finally got my BT working and what is COOL is that I can put my cell phone in my pouch and if I get a CALL I will be NOTIFIED and then I know who is calling if CALLERID indentifies them on my 2820 so then at the next stop I can call them back or listen to my VOICEMAIL!!!

VERY COOL FEATURE WITHOUT HAVING TO TALK ON THE PHONE WHILE RIDING!!!

You will like this better because of the handlebar controls too.

Yes it does shuffle.
I bought 2 - 2GB cards at Staples for $30 each, they hold over 500 songs each.
