Tough and dependable, zumo is built for motorcycles:
Navigate the Open Road
zumo 450 comes ready to go right out of the box with preloaded City Navigator NT street maps and a hefty points of interest (POIs) database, including motels, restaurants, fuel, ATMs and more. Simply enter a destination, and zumo takes you there with turn-by-turn voice directions. In addition, zumo accepts custom points of interest such as school zones and safety cameras and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs. The 450 also comes with a rechargeable, removable lithium-ion battery for trip planning or use on foot, and even accepts additional maps.
Add Optional Traffic
To help you stay ahead of traffic , zumo can receive optional TMC traffic alerts (in select cities) when used with a compatible traffic receiver. Simply press a button on the screen, and zumo recalculates your route to avoid traffic tie-ups.
Plan Your Trips and Share Your Rides
zumo 450 makes it easy to plan your next trip and share routes with your riding buddies. Plan trips on your computer before you start. Search for food and fuel stops and local attractions. Then, transfer your route to zumo and go.
At the end of the day, share your favorite places and rides with other zumo riders and review your travels in Google Earth. SD card expansion makes it easy to store data and share routes. Download routes to share with your riding buddies - even load MP3 files to your unit to enjoy tunes on the road.
