With zūmo 500's twin Bluetooth wireless technology, you can talk on the phone safely without removing your gloves or helmet. Connect zūmo to your Bluetooth-enabled headset/helmet and cell phone to make and receive hands-free calls whilst on the move. You can even make phone calls directly to POIs such as restaurants or hotels through zūmo's Bluetooth interface. In addition, zūmo transmits navigation voice prompts or MP3 music to your headset so you can listen wirelessly.

zūmo 500 makes it easy to plan your next trip and share routes with your riding buddies. Plan simple or extensive trips on your computer before you start: search for food and fuel stops and local attractions. Then, transfer your route to zūmo and go.

At the end of the day, share your favourite places and rides with other zūmo riders, and review your travels in Google™ Earth. SD card expansion makes it easy for storage and route sharing. Download routes to share with your riding buddies — even load mp3 files to your unit to enjoy tunes on the road.
