    Default Request - Mod Firmware for Zumo 390 to add media player

    Hi

    has someone tried to add a mediaplayer app to the original firmware to play music with this Zumo Model?
    Garmin sais that the unit can't play music (supose for mp3 codec limitations) but I'm sure it's possible

    And why are you sure it's possible? I see L"mp3", L"mp4", L"asf" strings in the firmware, but that means nothing...

    Garmin has fallen very short on the design of their newer Zumo Models.
    A Zumo should be able to handle Bluetooth Headset with Microphone + connection to any bluetooth enabled phone for making and receiving hands free phone calls + allow you to play you favourite mp3 collection or listen to regional radio all while navigating a route.

    I'm "sure" that Garmin hasn't implemented this feature in this model in order to sell other zumo obsolete models that has this funtion on it
