Top customer reviews
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.
The 590 is not intuitive as the 550 to use. Importing routes and then finding them in the unit is problematic
Battery is totally useless . It will not charge and does not hold a charge.
After the 550 this was a major disappointment.
Clear, even in bright sunlight, the screen is a significant and important improvement over previous versions; it dims automatically at night (and in tunnels) with crisper graphics than the 600 Series; the map detail, in standard view, is just about right - though in car mode you might want more. The unit both locates satellites and recalculates when you've made a wrong turn with commendable speed. It's also possible, at last, to have a selection of windows down one side showing, for example, "Arrival time", Distance to go", etc., though one has to say that their appearance is still infant-school clunky with lots of precious space wasted between the words and their border.
One really annoying feature is the "Up Ahead" display; it's impossible to turn off the screen icons for any of the three that you are forced to select; the list being: Speed Cameras, Lodging, Food, Road-side Help, Gas (Petrol), Parking, Banks & ATM and Restrooms (lavatories in English). While you might want cameras and fuel showing, having the screen littered with pictures of knives and forks or "restrooms" I find a hindrance to sane progress. Unlike TomTom units - they've stripped the feature out for a number of years - you can upload your own sets of POIs (Points of Interest) and navigate to them and receive warnings of their approach.
How the Bluetooth and iPhone (etc.) links work I've no idea - the idea of scrolling through song lists, checking my Stock Exchange portfolio and phoning lover No.3 while ear'oling down a twisty road is, to me, pure anathema. However, check a number of YouTube videos if you want to see just how comprehensive this side of the unit is - it seems to link to and play from almost anything, while also being able to remotely control a Garmin camera.
Speed-camera warnings (from the Garmin database) are utterly hopeless and far too general; it's far better to download the really detailed ones from Pocket GPS that locate permanent and temporary ones with precision. However, the icons displayed are tiny (a ridiculous situation when every greasy-spoon cafe is lit up like Tokyo at night) but you can wrestle with the software and change this if you wish (details online).
A warning: mine came with "Avoidances" set by default to include no U-turns; this might be fine if you're on Diavel, not so handy if riding 390 Duke. It's also a new unit, so, as an early adopter, be prepared for some yet-to-be-discovered snags and regular updates of the firmware.
Update 10th October 2014:
I've now covered around 2000 miles and am generally very impressed with its performance and (relative) ease of use. The rapid and smooth scrolling of the screen is a real bonus and the database comprehensive (though don't expect every fuel station listed to still exist...). I do find that it will occasionally select an obliviously unsuitable, longer and slower side-road route - though I suppose that this might well be a fault common to other Garmin units....
Update May 2016
After 12,000 miles the only things I dislike about the unit are 1) the interface - it's inferior to a TomTom and not all intuitive; liveable with, but not a pleasure. 2) the mount, though effective, is not a lockable and you have to remove the unit when you leave the bike. If you are wondering how to attach yours I can recommend a RAM Type. Mine is on a bolt that replaces one in the handlebar clamp. Neat, simple and effective
I'd carefully read all the reviews and decided on the Zumo 590LM on the basis of reviews which indicated the screen was visible in bright sunlight, which was not the case with the TomTom.
Out of the box the unit is of much better quality than the the TomTom.
I'd purchased the Touratech lockable mount which holds the unit securely in a clearly visible position.
The Zumo menu is not as intuitively obvious as that of the TomTom but is manageable.
Now the downside: screen visible in bright sunlight? Maybe I'm missing something obvious but I've tried tilting the unit, adjusting the brightness and the colour themes and the screen remains barely discernible even in low light conditions,
Regarding the 'theme' colour schemes: I've seen only one review that criticises the 'wishy-washy' colour schemes. Come on Garmin, the colours need to be much more vivid to be at all discernible on a motorcycle in daylight!
With the barely visible graphics the Zumo 590LM is useless as a motorcycle GPS without a bluetooth headset.
However, as I said, I might be missing something obvious. Can someone enlighten me?
Overall, I'm disappointed with the Zumo and regret not buying another TomTom.
