Re: Zumo 396 Bluetooth Earbud Alternatives

I use a Cardo Freecom 1 to connect to both my Garmin zumo 396 and my iPhone. 10 hr battery life. I can answer calls easily while listening to music and turn instructions from the garmin come through clearly. For short rides I use the helmet speakers, for long rides I use a pair of Sennheiser earbuds.
