Thanks for your answers.

@zebulon: I just wanna be sure what navi to buy. May be that I switch over to a 390LM. Itīs newer and quicker than the 660LM. Connectivity with sena20S and samsung S3 are as far as I now not a problem.
Please correct me if you see any problems with such a headset and cellphone.

@TwoPlug: Sorry but I had 2 garmins before and I had been happy with them. I will say, I wonīt change to TT, but itīs out of my stomach.

No problem I can have my Midland BT2 & iPhone connected; or choose to have iPhone thru the Garmin to the Midland. Absolutely no connectivity problem.

One of the great problems, friends encounter with TOMTOM is they cannot ride offroad tracks ...  :(
They have to stay behind me  ;D (because I have all the tracks in my Zumo  VCIF_ThumbUp )

I add them using Tyre software. A PC based mapping tool for TomTom. I import routes as a GPX file into Tyre, save the route then upload to my TomTom 450 GPS. Works for me.

It is a little strange from time to time riding on a route in the GPS when it doesn't show a road on the map  :o ;D

You cannot use 3rd party maps in TT?

I didn't say that. I said I can import GPX files into Tyre software then import the route into TomTom. That way I can ride off road tracks

True, but when I am riding the path, while it may not be visible on the map, I can see the path I am riding on in front of me and the GPS tells me which direction to go. It is not as bad as it sounds.

True it would be better if you could load the map, but I can't be bothered with that. My solution works fine when all I am doing is public roads, some of which (the remote tertiary type roads) are not on the TomTom maps for NZ.
