Teletype WorldNav 3500 motorcycle gps
I've been beating the internet crazy looking for a good buy on a Zumo 550 for my newly acquired '04 GS. Past post had me looking almost exclusively for the Garmin unit...pricey as you all know. This evening came across a new (well new to me) unit just recently released (Nov. 2010). The unit is Teltype 3500 [url]http://www.teletype.com/p/3500.html[/url]. The parent company has a strong rep with navigation systems for the trucking industry from what I've found thus far. Using that as a back drop and the fact it can be obtained for as little as $275 (Amazon) along from other reputable outlets, might any members have additional opinions/input on this company/unit. It seems like a good affordable alternative to a pricer Zumo. Seems to have all the bells and whistles and the company rep seems solid. It seems so new I was unable to find any internet-online reviews. Feedback?
WorldNav 3500 GPS, some comments
Timing is everything...I just submitted my review to the Editor of [url]www.webbikeworld.com[/url] on the WorldNav kit- got it back in December while in Florida.
Hopefully the article will get posted soon - the Editor is at the Indy Show this weekend.
In general the WorldNav is worth a look...but its not a 'Garmin' per se and does not include desktop software, etc...although having said that, the software application is available to run on other operating systems and is available for separate purchase - I haven't checked that out yet, but am going to.
The WorldNav uses CE 6.0 and has some other media applications bundled with it, although they need to be run separately. The navigation software is obviously the feature event.
It does include a single channel (mono) Bluetooth headset with single speaker for audio output, as there is no onboard speaker.
The article, when posted, should provide more insight and for some, the unit is likely to be an alternative...
