Garmin dropped news today of a new Zumo model for motorcycle riders, the Garmin Zumo 220. Riders have always wanted to really like the motorcycle specific Zumo series from Garmin, but often were turned away by the relatively high cost, so the lower “220″ model might sound appealing. However it will still come with a $600 MSRP.
You do get a fully featured GPS for the cost though with Bluetooth hands free calling with headset audio, Text To Speech, lane assistant, as well as the ability to create on road and off road routes. Perhaps the biggest difference from other Zumo models is the smaller screen… no widescreen on this model making it more similar to the Nuvi 500 series devices.
Those devices don’t carry the motorcycle specific features of the Zumo though like the fuel gauge that can give the rider fuel alerts.
