Nice unit ruined by awful software,
This review is from: Garmin ZUMO 390LM 4.3 inch Motorbike Satellite Navigation with UK and Full Europe Maps, Free Lifetime Map Updates and Bluetooth (Accessory)
A very nice unit as you'd expect for the price. The fitting instructions are confusing, and nothing is identified: hunt for your washers and spacers, they are in there, just not packaged with base plate.
The software (downloadable separately and free) is a complete load of birds mess. The web plug in doesn't plug in, the base camp software must have used a sociopathic 12 year old as the architect, Garmin Express freezes downloading maps (fast fibre connection in an ISPs head office btw).
I really hated the way on first connect (well 7th connect, first working connect) you discover you're about to do a four hour long map and software update. Not very user friendly that.
However, it does seem Garmin can actually make a GPS that works well and nicely. Two stars lost for not making the effort for software just as nice and easy.

Excellent review. I bought one yesterday and expected probs with updating maps on first connect. Guess what? Exactly the same prob as you. Minus two stars - agreed.
