I'm happy with any GPS if I can preload my planned route.  The only serious 
gripe I have with the Zumo 450 is that if you ask it to take you to an 
address, it doesn't always pick the most sensible route.  Also, I need to 
update the map data, as I sometimes find myself riding or driving in what 
is, literally, uncharted territory!  I don't have any Bluetooth devices so I 
couldn't justify the extra $$$ for the Zumo 550.
