Zumo 665 Upgrade

Post by carolinarider09 »

I just had my 665's memory upgraded by Chris Short at Palm Dr. Just finished setting it up and so far I am very impressed. Everything seems to load so much faster.

Have not tried it out on the road yet.

What did you have done? How much memory did you have put in?

My apologies, I don't check here as often as I should

What I had done was the internal memory upgrade to 16GB. All maps load on the main memory now and it boots up a lot faster.

I could have had the screen replaced, but Palm Dr. said that while it was worn, it was still operational and he did not suggest replacing it.

Thanks carolinarider09 for the info
I sent mine in for the 16gb memory upgrade, will be nice to be able to update entire map to unit and not have to monkey around putting rest of map on sd card after update.

Got my unit back with memory upgrade and just installed 2022.10 map update, was 4.4GB, install took about half hour. Sure was nice to install full map set to internal memory and not have to monkey around with putting what wouldn't fit on sd card. Unit seems to boot up faster now and moving between screens is faster. I'll probably keep it updated more often now. :)
