    I have a Zumo 550 which came with my 07 GS. Does anyone know to what extent i can get it to be useful for off road and what the best down loads would be for the US.
    Bonus Question: Forgive my ineptness but it is also capable of storing/playing mp-3 files...........Is there anyway to transfer my music from my I-Tunes library?:ear

    When you plug it into your computer the computer will see it as an external drive and you can drag and drop songs. You may have to put a SD card in it for the needed extra space.

    You can go to the Garmin site and download the manual.

    At the higher zoom levels,there are a suprising amount of secondary roads that show up,so depending on how far off road you go,the roads may already be there on your mapset.
