    Here's a link to the Garmin compare of the two units.

    Some of diffs are
    550 speaker is only in the car mount, 660 has it in the unit.
    550 4hrs battery, 660 5hrs (garmin claims)
    660 larger screen size
    660 rec retail in USD 100 cheaper??
    550 uses sd card, 660 uses micro ssd
    660 has lane assist, apparently this helps when on freeways (avoiding them is a better option)

    In terms of availablity I was told at JonnyAppleseed would be June at best so for what I see as minor differences I bought the 550 a couple of months ago. So far very happy with it.

    I got the 2009 Aerostitch catalogue today and its in there for $800.00. $100 less than the 550. Ugly looking thing. Quite an interesting writeup also. I guess I could type it all out if needed :1drink

    Like the spec info for the zumo 550 this does not really tell you anything.

    We need to see them side by side first
