On sale at Aldi from the 20th, this cheaper motorcycle sat nag may be of interest to some of you....

just had a good look at that one, seems a good buy but for me i need one that plays mp3, while it has an sd card it does not state it, had a look at other sites and some say it can play mp3 but on the garmin site and owners handbook there is no mention. It does have the external jack plug socket so i can play it through the speakers, my preferred choice. So shame as it looks a good model for the price.

No Lloyd, I have no need for one, having recently got a 660LMT and also have another car dedicated one with full European mapping and LMT too. I was just posting it up for others to see,since I got a notification from Aldi about motorcycle stuff for sale from Sunday.

I just looked on Ebay for these and it would appear that this particular model does not have MP3 on it Derek. £199 from Aldi, does seem about the cheapest price for ones around that are BNIB though.

its a cracking price indeed Pete, i tend to use the mp3 capabilities of the sat nav more than the satnav itself, so need one with that feature, pity.

I think the description is a wee bit out- 6" screen, in fact it's 3.7" (a frequently made claim :)whis )
Derek, I think you need to go for a 390LM or 660LM( :)tap ) to get an MP3 player.

Edit.
Just looked at 390LM and can't see MP3 feature :)heads

All the ones I have seen advertised at around £200 are refurbished, with a 12 month Garmin warranty 'as if it were new' - Yeh right. :)laughing
If a refurbished one is being sold in retail packaging, then it has not been refurbished by Garmin, who cannot pack refurbished products in new retail packaging, they pack them in a plain box with a Garmin sticker.
There are thousands of these Zumo's on the market for some reason. My guess is they are factory rejects or B grades that someone is distributing.
I have been putting a £70 now 7 years old Nuvi in a sandwich bag and clipping it to the mount since I bought it.
