Zumo 500
Customize your ride with zumo 500 — the rugged motorcycle navigator that's born to ride. This regionalised zumo version is preloaded with maps for one region or country of Pakistan, along with a CD ROM for Pakistan to use on your computer and download onto your zumo 500. Designed by bikers, zumo 500's motorcycle-friendly features make it easy to operate while in the saddle.
Enjoy Bike-Friendly Design
Durable and dependable, zumo 500 is built for motorcycles:

1. Glove-friendly touchscreen with large icons and left-handed controls make it easy to operate
2. High brightness, sunlight-readable, UV-resistant display makes it easy to view your screen
3. Motorcycle console for trip information, including fuel gauge to warn you when its time to fill up
4. Motorcycle mount with universal mounting hardware so you can mount it anywhere
5. Custom caps available in a variety of colors to reflect your style
6. Vibration-tested, waterproof and built with fuel-resistant plastics to withstand the elements
Navigate the Open Road
zumo 500 comes ready to go right out of the box with preloaded City Navigator NT® street maps for one region of Pakistan. These maps include a massive points of interest (POIs) database, featuring hotels, restaurants, fuel stations, ATMs and more. Simply enter a destination, and zumo takes you there with turn-by-turn voice prompts. In addition, zumo accepts customised points of interest such as school zones and safety cameras and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs. The 500 also comes with a rechargeable, removable lithium-ion battery for trip planning or use on foot, and even accepts additional maps.
Add Optional Traffic
To help you stay ahead of traffic , zumo can receive optional TMC traffic alerts (in select cities) when used with a compatible traffic receiver. Simply press a button on the screen, and z?mo recalculates your route to avoid traffic tie-ups.
Talk and Listen Wirelessly
With zumo 500's twin Bluetooth wireless technology, you can talk on the phone safely without removing your gloves or helmet. Connect zumo to your Bluetooth-enabled headset/helmet and cell phone to make and receive hands-free calls whilst on the move. You can even make phone calls directly to POIs such as restaurants or hotels through zumo's Bluetooth interface. In addition, zumo transmits navigation voice prompts or MP3 music to your headset so you can listen wirelessly.
Plan Your Trips and Share Your Rides
zumo 500 makes it easy to plan your next trip and share routes with your riding buddies. Plan simple or extensive trips on your computer before you start: search for food and fuel stops and local attractions. Then, transfer your route to zumo and go. At the end of the day, share your favourite places and rides with other zumo riders, and review your travels in Google™ Earth. SD card expansion makes it easy for storage and route sharing. Download routes to share with your riding buddies — even load mp3 files to your unit to enjoy tunes on the road. In addition, JPEG Picture Viewer lets you share photos of your adventures with friends and family.
