    I am waiting for the new TomTom Rider. I let my Zumo 550 go when I traded my last bike in. I was frequently frustrated with it on long trips.

    Your first decision is buttons vs touch screen, then Larger screen vs hand held.

    Then ask about models in the style you selected.

    Many many threads about 62/64 and lack of 12 V power.

    The new TomTom Rider looks great. It's time for an upgrade I believe.

    What was frustrating about the 550 on long trips?

    Is it a SDXC card or not formatted in FAT 32? The Garmin 60 CSX is pretty old so you need a SDHC card that is formatted in FAT 32, usually 4 GB.
