Hi guys

I have a Zumo 550 that I am using with a Scala Rider and I have a few questions:

1) Does anyone else find that the map is 'jerky'? IE: It doesn't update much? I've seen on peoples TomTom's the map updating is much smoother.

2) Can you change the default voice?

3) Can you use nRoute with the 550 over USB?

Number 1 is a really big problem for me as I've missed turnings because of it. I'm running Firmware 3.30

Thanks! Smile

Hi th0r0n

1) I too have a Zumo 550 and noticed that it's slightly less 'smooth' than the Tom Tom I use in the car, but I wouldn't say it's particularly 'jerky' (even when playing MP3s). It is rather slow to re-calculate if I miss a junction, which can be a problem, but otherwise it should be easy enough to follow the route. (I guess that depends how fast you ride though!) How often is it updating the screen? If it's taking more than about a second it may have a fault or something else using the processor perhaps. Have you tried a reset?

2) Pehaps the answer to this is on the Garmin website. Try: http://www8.garmin.com/products/faq.jsp?product=010-00567-00

3) Sorry, I can't answer this.
