What I like about the Zumo is that it is more robust (I would worry most about the folding antenna on the Nuvi), and it can easily be operated with gloves on which is a big plus for motorcycle use. BTW, Garmin recently came out with 24K topos on flash that are very good. With the 100k topos (on disc) the unit would not navigate, but with the 24k topos it does, and the resolution is quite useful.
You're right of course ... and "it's only money" and ... the stock market was up again today!
