    I figured I would start a Zumo thread for all those looking for Garmin Zumo info. Feel free to post anything Zumo related. 450, 550, 660 etc. There's a bunch of stuff on the forum already but it's all over the place. Please no "Zumo's are a waste of money talk here".

    Review 660: http://www.webbikeworld.com/garmin-gps/garmin-zumo-660-review/

    Here's my new 660 :biggrin: I'll post some install pics in a bit with some more screenshots.

    INSTALL

    It took a bit to wire it through the bike properly. I followed the main bundle on the right down and under the back part of the tank, across the bike and straight to the battery. I may wire it to an ignition on only source later but right now I want it always on.

    How's the bluetooth audio for music? I've got a 550, and i must say, I was VERY disappointed with the extremely poor sound quality. I'm running my i-phone for audio thru a bluetooth headset...unfortunately.

    Still shopping for a BT headset, will know soon enough. All reports though say there are no problems. The 660 is AD2P, stereo bluetooth.

    $699 CDN, not cheap but had to have it.

    Mine doesn't show it either but there's a map update waiting that I haven't downloaded yet. I think the most current map is 2010.20, is that what your using? 2010.10 is what's installed on mine. I have till the end of Dec to update so I'm waiting till then so I get the most current. Garmin only gives out one update with a purchase so I'd like to make it count.

    That's the Honda rebranded model I see.

    I have the generic one with side mount. I'll have to look into the centre mount as it hits my tank bag with full left steering.

    This is the standard one as well, I just setup the splash screen as my own. You can too with any picture that's on your Zumo.

    This is what you need. P/N - RAM-B-231 or RAM-B-231U (unpackaged). It's only about 10 bucks and fits at the tank perfectly without the u-bolt. You'll need a couple longer bolts as well but they're easy to find as well.
