    The problem with the earlier Garmin Zumo's is they do NOT support Garmin's Basecamp routing software. I've personally run into different issues with my Zumo 660.
    I was just on the phone yesterday with Garmin support and again was told that Basecamp routing is not supported in my Zumo 660.

    The below information is from Garmin support website.
    The following devices are NOT compatible with routing in BaseCamp:
    zumo 400 series
    zumo 500 and 550
    zumo 660 and 665
    These devices may appear to take a route without issue however, when navigating the route, an error message may appear. An alternate program to use is Mapsource. First download the map to your computer, then use MapSource to create and transfer routes to your zumo."
    Glad to share, I ran across this on a V-Strom site. I was reading on TomTom’s site about something to do with GPS satellites being adjusted. They described it as on odometer rolling over to all zeros. Said my older unit would still navigate but the time of day and ETA time would be off. I’ll find the link and post it when I get on the laptop.

    Here is the link I was talking about regarding the Satellite reset I was speaking of earlier. If you own a TomTom that's older and it can't update, they are sending out a 30% off coupon towards a new TomTom unit. I was given the TomTom XL I have from one of the wife's friends who bought a new car that had navigation built in.
