    Zumo 660

    On the Garmin website (Home>on the road) is a header showing the Zumo 660 but when you click on information it brings up the nuvi 765T.....I guess keep watching for more information.

    Just checked again, they have changed it. Looks like it was an error on the website.

    Here are screen shots of what is/was posted. Probably a typo - but who knows.

    I just looked at the site and didn't see it. But that's not to say they might not be redesigning the Zumo.

    Word on the Zumo forum is the 660 will debut on January 8th at the CES show in Vegas.
    Not sure how soon after it will be available for purchase, but it looks to be in February. It'll be interesting to see what improvements this unit will have over the first generation Zumo's.

    I for one love my 550 so can't imagine what new bells and whistles would drive me to shell out money to replace what works quite well for me.

    A "reverse route" option like the Quest and other models had would be great....I know pthe 550 leaves a blue crumb trail,but you do not get any prompts. Seems a software fix would do that for the 550 as it would not be worth the $$$ to me to upgrade yet.

    Until I read the post by the beta tester, I thought it was a mistake, and they had mislabeled the nuvi 660. I have the 550, and love it, but the 660 doesn't appear that it's all that watertight. The sd card slot on the side looks unprotected, whereas the 550 sd port is underneath, with a watertight cover enclosing it. I have riden through some heavy downpours with the 550, and it is as advertised weathertight. The new sd slot looks like water will go right inside the unit, guess we will have to wait for a report from the beta testers

    I am going to CES Friday 1/9 - I have heard I will see it then, can't say who from, yet. And the nuvi 660 is discontinued.

    Now, if only the forum thread notifications would come to my email, I might know when someone else posted to a thread I subscribed to!

    My notifications are supposedly fixed. Could someone please post here just so I can see if I get notice?

    The 660 seems to be feature rich. Will check it out at the BIG Gig. Thanks for the link.

    The announcement is mum on XM though. There's a big something to ask at CES.
