ZUMO XT MT-S - what does MT-S mean ?

Post by jfheath »

Does anyone know what the MT-S suffix to 'Zumo XT' means please ?

My XT has gone back to Garmin for replacement. They received it today and are sending me a newly refurbished Zumo XT MT-S EU

The serial number also starts with an S.

They have received mine, but the replacement has still to be shipped.

Today, I discovered something really important. I found another way that doesn't work.

I found only one site in Australia who's selling the MT-S for $649... https://www.peterstevens.com.au/garmin- ... -mt-s.html

Thanks. I've found a few places that list the Zumo XT MT-S, but so far nowhere that says what the model is. The same MT-S suffix seems to have been applied to some other units.

I also noted that a lot of UK stores are currently listing the XT at £349 - £80 cheaper than normal price. Whatever that may mean.

349 GB is $460 USD. In the states it sells for $500, but was lowered to $400 only for the Thanksgiving weekend.

As for the MT-S, your best bet is to ask Garmin people who're sending it to you. Keep us posted, will be interesting to know.

Maybe it means "secondhand". (Or as DELL computers would call it "Refurbished")

Well, it arrived today. I still havent got a clue what it means.
Maps, Traffic ? but my previous one had those.
And MT-S seems to be given to other new Garmin Products I notice.
Its a mystery to me. But it has a later version of the Hardware v8 as opposed to v6.
There are no indications on the XT itself, or on the screen, and it starts up in the same way - except the copyright notice in now 2021.
The USB connector seems to be on a slightly raised rubber block which the waterproof flap mates with when it is closed. I don't remember that before.

Believe its lifetime maps and traffic, with the S referring to the fact its via a smartphone app, replacing the D that meant digital traffic.

Well, that's what it means on 396 -
The "LMT-S" stands for Lifetime Maps and Traffic with the Smartphone Link App.
