For those users that maybe previously used the Zumoforum you either have found or will find that the forum is off line and will most likely stay that way. The owner wanted to "retire" and wash his hands of the forum "business", to that end was wanting to sell the domain name and database........didn't happen so at this point it is dead..

BUT, there is now a new forum up and on-line. The database is growing as it had to start from scratch. It is located here: http://www.zumouserforums.co.uk/community/index.php

Thanks Scott.

My Zumo 550 keeps ticking along. Fingers crossed.

I have used that old forum on the odd occasion.

Yea John, both mine are still working yet as well.
I've had to go the route of Open Source maps for my SP2820, but so far Garmin is still releasing maps that work on the 550.
I do anticipate that the new maps will loose their compatibility with the 550 in the next couple of years. After that I'll have the Open Source maps on the 550 also.

Why was he selling it? Did it produce ad revenue?

His reason was that he didn't want to deal with managing it anymore.
As far as ad revenue, I would say no. It was ad free, so I'm guessing that he was paying all the fees out of his pocket.

Some members offered to help with fees, but he just wanted out..... but was not going to offer the database of info for anyone to continue, without paying for it... Some had checked into it with him privately, but they commented that it was way out of their price range for their budget.
