A few Issues with the device at present,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Garmin zumo 220 3.5-Inch Bluetooth Motorcycle GPS Navigator (Electronics)
1> I sold my Nuvi 500 and bought the Zumo 220 so that I could have bluetooth audio.
The problem is that the GPS connects as a BT Cell Phone and not a BT Audio device. This means I can't connect my bluetooth cell phone to my Cardo Scala Rider G4 headset and make phone calls if the headset is paired to the GPS. My confirmation of the GPS's connection type was made by connecting the GPS to my Sony bluetooth radio; no sound plays if I have the radio set for BT Audio, only for BT Cell Ph.
Cardo weighed in on the matter and said:
When using the Garmin Zumo 220 with our headsets you will not be able to have any other bluetooth connections paired to the G4 or you will contunue to have connection issues. This GPS will not allow a headset and phone to have parallel connections that will allow all devices to communicate.
2> I wanted to use the GTM 25 FM Traffic adapter with the unit and use the GTM 25's USB plug instead of the hardwired plug that came with the cradle.
You can't do this because the GTM 25's USB plug is longer. The design of the cradle is such that there is a pocket to press on the end of the USB connector, holding this in. The standard one fits; the traffic one does not. So, you have a motorcycle GPS which supports traffic, but not on a motorcycle. I may try one of my Nuvi 500 holders which have an opening for the USB connector.
3> I bought this GPS because it has large letters for typing names.
You select which portion of the alphabet you want to see and you get a handful of large letters. The problem is the erase button in the upper right corner. It is not large. Good luck trying to press it with large gloves on. No typos allowed.
