Garmin ZUMO 395LM 4 : A good solid satnav.

Sat Navs

Not bad, will need to fully explore its uses. . I have tried the sat nav and found some routes only suitable for bikes and clearly fun to ride. I have a triumph with a 12 volt socket near the handlebars but could not find a waterproof way to use this for power as the usb is covered by the bike mount. Links well to my helmet for sound.

Great piece of kit, the split screen for the next turns or what’s ahead is very helpful. The re route and the ability to drag and change a route once planned is very handy.

I am happy with this so much as an up grade for a failing zumo550. Learn what it can do and it really is minimal idiosyncrasies and you will never be upset. It was crucial to me to be capable to load tailor made (osm) mapping. And to load and observe ‘tracks’. It does the two with the addition of becoming ready to create a route (and for this reason give navigation advice) from a loaded track. The reduction of one star is due to the fact i can’t recognize why you get questioned what the upcoming waypoint is when you halt on a route 50 percent way as a result of. Absolutely it is really a gps and ought to know exactly where you are and just have on, which is what the 550 does. It is really relatively quick to find out of you can not remember but it is peculiar.Here are the specifications for the Garmin ZUMO 395LM 4:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Easy-to-use motorbike satellite navigation with glove-friendly 4.3 inch touchscreen display; resistant to fuel vapour, UV rays and harsh weather (IPX7)
  • Preloaded with maps of UK, Ireland and full Europe (45 countries) with free lifetime map updates
  • Garmin adventurous routing finds curvy or hilly roads; limits major highways
  • Rider alerts for sharp curves, railway crossings, speed cameras and more
  • Bluetooth hands-free phone control and the ability to hear spoken turn-by-turn directions via your compatible helmet or headset

Very very good, 5 star will be if it experienced display screen. Really superior, 5 star will be if it experienced display screen bigger for exact cost. I know that more substantial exist but genuine pricey for a gps.

Good wardhare, it could be far more quicker in the calculation. Is a quite awesome solution with alot of ‘extras’ like: tire stress, mp3 reding, virb handle and with all the required to mount in your car or bike.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • The best SatNav yet?
  • A good solid satnav.
  • Great GPS for motorbikes

Straightforward to set up, however, looks to choose some incredibly strange routes.

I’m happy with this so far as an upgrade for a failing zumo550. Learn what it can do and it’s little idiosyncrasies and you won’t be disappointed. It was important to me to be able to load custom (osm) mapping. And to load and follow “tracks”. It does both with the addition of being able to create a route (and hence give navigation guidance) from a loaded track. The loss of one star is because i cannot understand why you get asked what the next waypoint is when you stop on a route half way through. Surely it’s a gps and should know where you are and just carry on, which is what the 550 does. It’s fairly easy to find out of you can’t remember but it is strange.

The fundamental grumble about this (and other branded bike sat navs) is that it is just overpriced for what it is. Sure it worked well enough, but why not – it is hardly bleeding edge techology anymore and only has to do one thing. Also, you have to cart the thing around since there is no security on the mounting kit. Yes i knew all of this when i bought it and maybe it is as good as any out there but compared to a cheap tablet it is low resolution and slow – it could be made so much better – if garmin felt like making it so.

Good sturdy satnav for the bike. It does all it should do and is big enough, without being too big. If i had to complain about anything, it would be that the screen can sometimes be difficult to see when the sun is on it. The u-bolt to fix it to the bars could have been rubberised to prevent it marking the bars, and a tad longer too. My main gripe is the basecamp route planning software for your pc. I find it slow and unwieldy. Having to have the unit plugged into the pc can be annoying if you want to plan anywhere other than sitting at your desk. Googlemaps is so much smoother and user friendly, but unfortunately you can’t use that directly. I find myself planning a route on googlemaps and replicating that in basecamp to send to the unit itself.

Garmin zumo 345lm 4. 3 inch motorbike sat nav. Does everything you need & more, loads of sub menus & easy to connect with pc. I paired the speech directions with my headset via bluetooth (easy to do), but turned the speech off in the end, as the constant warnings about speed changes got on my nervestrying to ride a bike, concentrate / look where you’re going & read a sat nav at the same time can be testing in built up area’s, i found that sometimes the map took too long to sort itself out when doing a lot of direction changes in a short distance, but that was probably more to so with the scale i had it set to, than the actual sat nav. I still haven’t worked out all the features, which will take time, but great product overall though – i would buy it again, just wish the motorbike sat navs were in a similar price bracket to equivalent car sat navs.

Your safe with a garmin gps unit of any variety. This one ideal at eye-level on a motorcycle. (one eye on the road and the other checking your route. Great with bluetooth connection to earpieces.

Like aircon in a car – once you have it, how could you ever not?. Came free with the bike, i almost gave it away, but after 2+ years, 17,000 miles round most of europe, i now don’t like touring without it. I don’t follow the directions slavishly, but i know whatever route i take, it’ll get me where i want to go- and if i have a preplanned arrival time, i know how long i have left to play. When i’m running low on fuel, no more searching about for a petrol station – a couple of touches and i’m sorted. It’s great to (nearly) always know the speed limit in towns. It gives a great indication of the upcoming bends when roadsigns don’t. It’s easy to use, even with winter gloves on. Easy to see, the only exception being on those rare very bright but rainy days when i have my dayglow overjacket on. It’s withstood riding all day at high speed through heavy rain, falling off the bike (my fault) at 30+mph without a scratch.

Bit pricey but you do get wiring and a ram mount with it. Wired the power cable to the number plate light,earth cable to battery. Works great and more features specially for bikes.
