I know some folks here have been waiting on the Zumo 550 to come out this month from Garmin ( http://www.garmin.com/zumo/ ). I finally got a response back from them answering a few questions i had:

Bottom line is the MP3 capacity is decent, but they won't allow Stereo bluetooth headphones to listen to them (really stupid). They also are not going to allow Sirius subscribers, only XM. This unit's going to cost around $1000. I think for that price, it should wipe my ass if I wanted. I now see no reason to buy one of these over other GPS units (with MP3) that cost half their price or lower.

Thank you for contacting Garmin:

The max MP3's that the unit can use will be 1000 currently at this time.
Unfortunately, no the Zumo 550 is not a A2DP complainant unit and does not have the capability to be upgraded. Unfortunately we currently only work with the XM service at this time.
