Garmin® zūmo® 220 Scales Down the Size and Price of Motorcycle Navigation

Zumo 220

Garmin, the global leader in satellite navigation, is pleased to announce the zūmo 220 – a rugged and affordable touchscreen motorcycle navigator that includes text-to-speech guidance, lane assist, Bluetooth wireless technology compatibility and on-road/off-road travel options.

Colin Lee, Automotive Product Manager said: “zūmo 220 is a streamlined motorbike navigation device, with a price to match – it provides the most popular motorcycle-specific features at your fingertips.” 

“Compact and waterproof, zūmo 220 makes two-wheel navigation as stress-free as possible for riders on any budget.”

Whether you’re riding for adventure or travel, you’ll benefit from the years of hands-on experience and countless miles of motorcycle expertise of Garmin’s zūmo team.

With a 3.5” colour touchscreen that’s both rugged and responsive, zūmo 220 provides the information you need, at a glance, in an easy-to-read format as you travel. zūmo 220 displays speed limits on most major roads and gives turn-by-turn directions and spoken street names, via the built-in speaker or through a compatible Bluetooth helmet or headset.

Built to withstand the demands of the open road, zūmo 220 is waterproof, glove-friendly and resistant to fuel spray that can wear away at similar devices.

For spontaneous road trips or detailed route planning, zūmo 220 makes life easier with preloaded, full European street-level maps and millions of points of interest including petrol stations, hotels, restaurants and more.

Complex road junctions are easily navigated through advanced routing capabilities, such as lane assist which indicates the correct lane to be in for your destination. zūmo 220 also features HotFix, which automatically calculates and stores critical satellite information to quickly calculate your position.

Whilst riding, it’s also easy to access trip information directly from the zūmo, such as heading, altitude and a customisable fuel gauge that can be modified to the motorcycle’s maximum fuel range.  In addition, with the zūmo 220’s powerful trip planning tools, you can create and customise routes via computer and then transfer the saved route directly to the zūmo before you begin your journey. 

zūmo 220 is the latest breakthrough from Garmin, who has spent more than 20 years developing technologies and innovations to enhance users’ lives, making Garmin a household name in the automotive, aviation, marine, wireless, outdoor and fitness industries.
