Zumo Good accessories not so good,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Garmin zumo 390LM 4.3" Motorbike Sat Nav with UK and Full Europe Maps, Free Lifetime Map Updates and Bluetooth (Accessory)
First the good.
The unit is excellent cant fault it although I have not used it a great deal.
The text and images are a good size even for my eyes (not so good) and I can see the screen detail in sunlight. That's a a first!
It is the accessories that leave much to be desired.
The loom is a bit short and I had to fiddle quite a bit to get a satisfactory position for the block power unit.
I think the loom should be about 12 inches longer at the front end to allow an easier install
The ends of the loom were nicely soldered for an easy fit however the soldered ends were only about 2-3mm long and too short to fit to the battery terminals. So I had to strip the ends to get a good connection!
The mount looks flimsy and I am concerned that the satnav unit could drop out of the mount,
The mount is not thief proof and therefore the mount itself can be easily stolen. I will have to spend another £16 or so to make it less vulnerable.
Lastly there is a small screw with retains the electical connection and this was missing.
I notified Garmin of this. I was surprised for such a tiny item they wanted all purchase numbers and details. I expect that screw is produced for twopence! I sent the details and have been ignored so I will have to start chasing.
Not good Garmin.
More bad news 6th August 2014
I informed Garmin that the speech via my blue tooth was not distinct.
They asked me to send details SerNo etc which I did and I have heard no more. I will have to remind them again.
I am finding it impossible to hear the directions through the blue tooth Scalarider at above 35MPH.
One compensation the screen is good enough to read in most daylight situations. That's a relief anyway.

Mr Anthony Pitt says:
I've not fitted the power lead yet, as I intend plugging it in to the bikes power socket, that way making it removable, the mount looks quite strong if a little fiddly to assemble, especially the tiny screw that secures the electrical contact in place, for security I intend to take the power lead and sat nav away with me when parked up, keeping every thing out of sight and temptation of theft..... do not lose the tiny screw!
