    Just to follow up on this, I finally got around to having a look at the user manual which you can find on the FCC website. Note that you will get a security warning when you access this link

    https://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/ViewExhibitReport.cfm?mode=Exhibits&RequestTimeout=500&calledFromFrame=N&application_id=493835&fcc_id='IPH-A2AMGB'

    The remarkable thing about the new Zumo is that it appears to use the much-criticized "Trip Planner" instead of the traditional Route Planner. It will be very interesting to see the reaction to this from users. Motorcycle riders usually seem to be very particular about how routes perform... but maybe Garmin has somehow improved the trip planner for this model?

    From page 9 of the manual...
    Planning a Trip

    You can use the trip planner to create and save a trip with multiple destinations.

    5 Select Select.
    6 To add additional locations, select .
    7 Selec tNext.
    8 Enter a name, and select Done.

    Style. Passion. Intelligence. And that’s even before you turn it on.

    Rugged and waterproof to IPX7¹, zūmo 350LM is built tough for bikers – by bikers. We tested it on rutted-out roads, cobblestone streets, in heavy rain and glaring sunshine and the result was always the same – zūmo kept on navigating.

    See the Open Road

    zūmo 350LM features a highly visible, sunlight-readable 4.3” (10.9 cm) touchscreen display with a simple glove-friendly interface. With a Bluetooth™-enabled helmet or headset (sold separately), you can get clear, turn-by-turn spoken directions. Also included is a motorcycle-specific mount so zūmo rides sturdy, and you ride with confidence. There's even a car mount included for automotive navigation.

    Write a Story a Thousand Miles Long

    The new Service History Log lets you record the date, mileage and type of maintenance performed on your motorcycle. Tire mileage, tire changes, tire pressure, chain cleanings, oil changes, new spark plugs – anything you can think of, zūmo will keep a record of it.

    Go Anywhere with BaseCamp™

    Use BaseCamp to plan your next ride. You can create routes, waypoints and tracks from your computer and transfer them to your zūmo. The “Track Draw” feature lets you trace your planned route and view elevation changes, helping you estimate the difficulty of your ride. Plan the perfect scenic route, making sure your navigator takes you through your favorite places. Even play back your trips over time and save and share your adventure.

    Navigation with Lifetime Maps

    zūmo 350LM offers you the convenience of lifetime map updates², which gives you up-to-date mapping and the most current information about businesses like restaurants, ATMs, hospitals and more.

    zūmo’s premium navigation search bar returns results for points of interest (POIs) as you type them in giving you a faster, more intuitive experience. There’s also a speed limit indicator and Exit Services that show you parks, gas stations, shops and restaurants for upcoming exits. With TracBack you can ride wherever the road takes you, then navigate along that same route back to where you started.

    No more guessing which lane you need to be in to make an upcoming turn. Lane assist with junction view guides you to the correct lane for an approaching turn or exit, making unfamiliar intersections and exits easy to navigate. It realistically displays road signs and junctions on your route along with arrows that indicate the proper lane for navigation.

    For those considering the Zumo 350 just seen this posting on another forum by an Authorised Garmin dealer (who has apparently checked with Garmin Dealer Tech Support):

    The recently released (Q3 2012) Garmin Zumo 350LM appears to lack track import capability. Independent testing as well as discussions with Garmin Dealer Tech Support confirm this.

    The Zumo 350 tested was updated with the only OS service pack update to date.

    Testing shows:

    1. Sample track created in either Basecamp 4.0.2 or Mapsource 6.16.3 and exported to the device is not resolved. No record of any track shows when the device is on. The file sent is queued as a "Temp" file in the /GPX folder but no further manipulation or import is done in the device.
    2. Routes are correctly resolved and appear.
    3. Waypoints are correctly resolved and appear.
    4. TracBack feature works properly.

    The entire Zumo model line as of date has allowed for advanced track importation and manipulation. However, the Zumo 350LM has departed from this advanced and necessary feature routinely used by off and on road motorcycle enthusiasts. Other disciplines use tracks on Zumo's as well.

    It could be a bug that will be fixed with a software update. Or it could be a continuation of the trend (Garmin's apparent marketing strategy) to remove features on new models. Let's hope it is a bug.
