5.0 out of 5 stars Great product but not such a huge advance on my ..., 18 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Garmin zumo 590LM 5" Motorbike Sat Nav with UK and Full Europe Maps, Free Lifetime Map Updates and Bluetooth (Electronics)
Great product but not such a huge advance on my old Zumo 550 as I thought it would be. Still, having a 5 inch screen on my ZZR 1400 is a luxury and the navigation is good. It doesn't take long to acquire satellites and the dynamic route guidance (altering the route on the go for traffic reasons or because you haven't followed the route correctly), is significantly faster thanks to a quicker processor. I haven't yet asked it to find windy routes with the Curvy Roads feature but that was partly why I bought it. The option to have the satnav in portrait mode sounds great but in reality it is a Little tricky to do if you are using bike power. You will need to wire it to the bike in such a way to leave enough spare wire. That might look a bit unsightly (as it would on my ZZR) as you need to allow the satnav holder to rotate. If you have a previous Garmin, say a Zumo 550 or 600, beware that you will need to replace the charging wires if you use bike power to support your satnav. The holder for the unit is very different. All the required kit comes with the unit. I would also mention that the satnav is not secure with the Garmin holder. A quick press of the button will release the unit. I would never leave my unit on the bike unattended but you should remember that. Overall, a great product that I am enjoying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing a few features but still love it, 21 Aug 2014

Good to see that Garmin are finally bringing across many of the features from the standard automotive GPS units but there are still some things missing that would be good to have. Why Garmin always let the motorcycle units lag behind the rest of the range I don't know but it's always been that way. Lots more info here: http://www.zumoforums.com

Main reason I'm posting this is to help with one important item that's no longer supplied with the 590 as it was with the 5xx and 6xx ranges - a case!

The OEM Garmin case is selling here on Amazon for £23! I found this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00JWKHTIU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

For under £3 I thought it was well worth a go even if it turned out to be rubbish. It took a couple of weeks to arrive (from China) but it was well worth it. The quality is as good as the OEM case I had with my 660 and the 590 fits perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great all purpose sat nav, 18 Aug 2014

This review is from: Garmin zumo 590LM 5" Motorbike Sat Nav with UK and Full Europe Maps, Free Lifetime Map Updates and Bluetooth (Electronics)
This is a really 'complete' sat nav system. It comes with all the components you will need supplied in the box.

This was initially a replacement for a motorbike sat nav and for that it ticks all the boxes... and some. The RAM mount is ideal for fixing to any motorbike, it will secular attach almost anywhere ( the only disappointment was that there is no rubber protector supplied to protect the finish on what it is attached to).

I have just returned from a two week break in France where it was used on a daily basis for touring using the car mount/charger ( I couldn't get the wife on the back of the bike for two weeks) and it performed great.

All in all I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to any one!

Easy to use, clear and simple. The screen brightness could be a little better especially in very sunny days but it overall. It's a great bit of kit. Very happy with it.
