    Please excuse me if this has already been stated...Cycle Gadgets is out of business. That being said, I got my ZUMO 450 off of E-Bay for $399.95 w/free shipping 2 1/2 yrs ago.

    Really easy to read. The screen may be smaller, but the layout is vertical, rather than horizontal. That means it displays what's in front of you rather that what's off to the side. I'm more interested in what's in front.

    The screen on the 60CX is about 2 1/2" high. My wife has a wide-screen Nuvi with a 4 1/2" diagonal measurement. Top to bottom that screen measures 2 1/4", so with the 60CX you can actually see farther ahead.

    Progaming your own routes was importnat to me. After using my Garmin Nuvi 255 on my motorcycle I got frustrated not being able to program my own route. My Zumo 220 now gives me that feature. It works great. It is bright, not too big and I can work it with gloves.

    The Garming support is great. They answer the phone right away, they speak midwestern and they talk slow enough you can follow them. They also stick with you until you get your GPS doing what you want.

    The Zumo 220 may not have all the bells and whisles, but it is nice unit.

    I have a new NUVI with bluetooth... but it will not link with my SENA SMH... nor with my bluetooth phone either... Guess I didn't need to purchase a bluetooth Garmin after all
