works well

Hi there, I bought one of these babies a few weeks ago along with a scala rider teamset at a special price for the lot. The zumo will connect to my mobile phone with no probelms and also the scala rider so I can hear the lady who lives in the satnav through the speakers in my helmet. I can also take phone calls whilst on the bike via the touchscreen.

I found it easy to set it all up and the maps are all preloaded but it comes with a disk anyway.

It is expensive for what it is but having used it I would not go anywhere without it now. It certainly works for me. I hope this helps.

Hi, Got the Zumo 660 connected to my Autocom AVI Pro intercom via bluetooth. I know the Autocom headsets are wired but I don't have to think about charging. They are also very clear at motorway speeds.

Note Autocom have gone into administration with the stock being bought by Starcom.

I've had real problems getting a phone to connect to the Zumo via bluetooth.
Had to buy an old Motorola Razor off ebay.

Not very impressed with the 660 bluetooth compatability.
