I had to surf through the ADVrider site to find out the old forum is gone. Hopefully the "how to update your 550 maps" instructions are still around. Thanks to whomever has set this up.

Thanks Stu and Sussamb.
I should introduce myself. Located in Central Pennsylvania. I ride a 2005 Kawi ZZR 1200. Most of my miles are commuting but I do frequent all day rides here in PA, occasional long weekends in Virginia and West Virginia and when I can extended trips farther west. I primarily us the Zumo 550 as a tracker since I don't often lead but when I'm out on my own I Bluetooth it to my SENA 20 for voice instructions.
