  1. 1. GARMIN Zumo 450 3.5-Inch Portable GPS Navigator This Is What Ive Been Waiting For! Born to ride, the Garmin zumo 450 brings all the power of a GPS navigator, wireless communicator, multimedia entertainer, and tour guide all into one device. And its made just for motorcycles. Designed by bikers, zumos motorcycle-friendly features make it easy to operate while in the saddle. From back roads to rallies, its preloaded maps and high-end navigation features give you the freedom to go where you want. The zumo 450 includes many of the 550s motorcycle-friendly features, minus bluetooth wireless technology, text-to-speech and XM Satellite, at a price that wont break your budget.

Made for Two Wheels The zumo is made for extreme durability; its vibration-tested, waterproof, and built with fuel-resistant plastics to withstand the elements. Its also intuitive, with a glove-friendly touch screen with left-handed controls that make it easy to operate. Theres a bright, sunlight-readable, UV-resistant display that makes it easy to view, as well as a unique motorcycle console for trip information, including a fuel gauge to warn you when its time to fill up. The display measures 3.5 inches diagonally and features 320 x 240 pixel resolution. Measuring 4.8 x 3.9 x 1.6-inches (W x H x D) and weighing just 10.6 ounces, the zumo is small enough to carry with you while youre off the bike. The high-sensitivity GPS receiver is powered by the SiRF Star chipset, which offers extreme accuracy, even when youre riding under dense foliage or between tall buildings. The unit also features Garmin Lock--an advanced anti-theft feature that disables the unit from performing any functions until you type in a specific four-digit PIN or take the unit to a predetermined location. The zumo comes with a motorcycle mount with universal mounting hardware so you can mount it anywhere. Garmin also provides custom caps, which are available in a variety of colors, so you can reflect your style. Navigate the Open Road The zumo 450 comes ready to go right out of the box with preloaded City Navigator NT street maps and a hefty points of interest (POIs) database, including motels, restaurants, fuel, ATMs and more. Simply enter a destination, and the zumo takes you there with turn-by-turn voice directions that speak street names. In addition, zumo accepts customized points of interest such as school zones and safety cameras, and it also includes proximity alerts to warn of upcoming POIs. A rechargeable, removable lithium-ion battery that offers up to three hours of use is integrated into the zumo for trip planning or use on foot. In addition, the

Traffic Alerts The zumo can receive optional TMC traffic alerts (in select cities) when used with a compatible traffic receiver. Simply press a button on the screen, and the zumo recalculates your route to avoid traffic tie-ups. Route Planning, Sharing, and Entertainment The zumo makes it easy to plan your next trip and share routes with your riding buddies. Plan trips on your computer before you start. Search for food and fuel stops and local attractions. Then, transfer your route to your zumo and go. At the end of the day, share your favorite places and rides with other zumo riders, and review your travels in Google Earth. SD card expansion makes it easy for storage and route sharing, and you can download routes to share with your riding buddies. You can also load MP3s onto the unit so you can enjoy music while youre riding. Plus, a JPEG picture viewer lets you share photos of your adventures with friends and family. Features: * Display: 3.5-Inch Diag. 2.1-Inch H X 2.8-Inch W, 320 X 240 Pixels * High Bright Sunlight-Readable, Uv-Resistant, Touch Screen Display * Supports Optional Fm Tmc Traffic Alerts * Preloaded Maps For All Of North America * Look Up Addresses & Points Of Interest Personal Review: GARMIN Zumo 450 3.5-Inch Portable GPS Navigator As most of the reviews attest, this is a fine GPS. I mounted mine on my BMW 1100GS using a BMW plug so that I can quickly detach and use in my auto. The GPS was used extensively on a recent trip to Alaska and performed as it was supposed to do. It was always very accurate and particularly useful in finding motels and the next available gas stop, no small matter when traveling in some of the remote regions in British Columbia and the Yukon. It runs off the bike on batteries for about four hours. That feature was useful in previewing the next days ride which i s useful when changes occur. I also used the MapSource software to update the map info to 2009. My son was with me and is now enthusiastic about getting one for himself. He will probably get the 550, but the 450 is sufficient for me. Just a great buy. Some folks do not like the on line manual, but I printed mine out, trimmed it and put it in a zip lock and took with me. No problem. I detached the GPS at the end of the day, using the
  4. 4. security screw driver and was not inconvenienced by the process. Just remember a good safe place to keep it. For More 5 Star Customer Reviews and Lowest Price: GARMIN Zumo 450 3.5-Inch Portable GPS Navigator 5 Star Customer Reviews and Lowest Price!
