The extra i use it, the much better i like it. Highly-priced, but ruggedised to endure exposed everyday use in all weather conditions. I use both on motorbike and in auto. Cool supplemental capabilities consist of distant command of virb elite digital camera, media player and automated logging of route (for later assessment with basecamp software package). Disappointing that it would not connect with the temperature sensor (out there individually) to give a real time air temperature display screen. Ability to plan vacation on basecamp and then add to zumo is genuinely valuable. Accessories quite pricey – e. Just the bike mounting hardware to in shape to second bike expenses as significantly as a fundamental vehicle form gps does.

A bit expensive, but great on the bicycle. Only concern is, the new significant dual-carriageway in torbay has been open up for a though, but the map updates still haven’t been introduced. It retains thinking you are off-roading it when we journey through there.

Effortless to use, distinct and basic. The monitor brightness could be a little far better particularly in pretty sunny days but it in general.Here are the specifications for the Garmin ZUMO 590LM 5 inch Motorbike Satellite Navigation:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Garmin motorbike satellite navigation with 5 inch dual-orientation, sunlight-readable, glove-friendly touchscreen display
  • Preloaded street maps for the UK and Europe (45 countries) with free lifetime map updates
  • Hands-free phone control and spoken directions heard in-helmet via Bluetooth technology; includes MP3 player; control iPod and iPhone right on the display
  • Rugged, withstands fuel vapours, UV rays and harsh weather (IPX7 water rating)
  • Curvy roads routing navigates to winding roads

Its even better than the 660. Couldn’t see how garmin could improve on the 660 but the 590 is even better. Nice display, easy to read in sunlight and i like the new style instructions such as turn by the glass building, very happy i upgraded to this model.

The price tag harm, but really pleased with the item, so it feels justified now. Owning owned a garmin for the final eight several years, i’m genuinely hoping that they commence to boost their on line map updates and unit administration – the interface has normally been appallingly clunky and lengthy-winded. As the this sat nav – i am make sure you with the original working experience.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Missing a few features but still love it
  • Overally very happy with it so far
  • The best yet from Garmin

I have to admit that it was heavier than i imagined but as soon as it is on the bicycle it performs pretty very well. It has fantastic bluetooth connection which is very very good on my bicycle intercom and has some awesome tips from the previous techniques in that at the time you go past your junction in mistake it does not consider to send out you back to the junction and get started again, but finds the subsequent achievable route. I tried out it with my winter season gloves and they labored nicely but you have to ensure you are urgent the right button and be aware if you are making an attempt to make any changes even though driving. Consider my tips and prevent on the aspect of the road in a safe spot and alter if you have a lot more than a just one button adjustment. But get pleasure from the sensation of getting a safe and sound journey and know wherever you will be and where you are heading to finish up :).

Tried working with my motor vehicle sat nav for a number of yrs but immediately after 2 europe excursions it died of vibration, and the deficiency of verbal guidance was not excellent. This is great, no a lot more finding shed in substantial owns and metropolitan areas. Lane aid is a great basic safety attribute.

Got the garmin 590lm for my bike, also good in the car, easy set up and good size screen, nice and clear, did like it. Purchased mine new 11/02/2016after only 16 months started having issues. Will/would not hold a charge, so have to use constantly plugged in to power. . France, spain, italy all vanished ??????. Try and plan an eu run on the bike ?????looked on youtube /google. . (then i see the 590 issues and find out the 590 is finished & superseded) as you do. . Factory reset unit reinstalled maps as if new. So repeated this exercise again. Garmin seems to have started leaving the eu early. . Send it back for repair or replace. . Only 12 months warrantee so will have to pay for return and action chosen. . 1 year is a statutory product warrantee, so on this expensive product not a great garmin warrantee ?????.Or lack of faith in there product & software ?????would not buy secondhand.

Tried using my car sat nav for a few years but after 2 europe trips it died of vibration, and the lack of verbal instructions wasn’t perfect. This is great, no more getting lost in large owns and cities. Lane assist is a great safety feature.

Took me 3,000 miles – through all terrains and weather including torrential rain – without any problems, didn’t miss a beat. One thing is that the battery life is not great at all – i didn’t want to ‘hard-wire’ it to my battery so opted for a cheapish battery i kept in my pocket and plugged into the gps (made by anker) which kept it going the whole time.

Better than expected and comes with all the different attachments required for bike or car. Can be wired to battery on bike is included. This is well worth the cost and i am glad i purchased this one.

A bit pricey, but great on the bike. Only issue is, the new major dual-carriageway in torbay has been open for a while, but the map updates still haven’t been released. It keeps thinking you are off-roading it when we travel through there.

Overally very happy with it so far. Not sure that the directions are as clear as the zumo 550 but that could just be me getting use to it. Once i had reset the screen to 2d i got a much clearer image. Overally very happy with it so far.

A bit glitchy and often loses the map tools eg. Up ahead, volume, change route etc. Its only a 30 second job to re-add them but a bit frustrating even when software is all up to date. Was going to stick it on ebay and get the tomtom400 rider, but the review on that are probably worse, so may as well stick with it and grin and bear it. Conclusion- all bike sat navs are crap, except for my old original tomtom rider 2 which i wished i’d kept.
