Garmin Zumo 590LM Motorcycle GPS

The Garmin Zumo 590LM has a big, bright 5.0 inch touchscreen display that is easy to read, even in sunlight. With dual-orientation, you can position the navigator horizontally, for a wider view, or vertically, to see more of the route ahead. And, thanks to its high-sensitivity, glove-friendly, intuitive interface, entering information is as easy as shifting gears.

The Zumo 590LM features Bluetooth wireless technology. With it, you’re free to talk on your phone without having to remove your gloves or helmet. Simply connect Zumo to your cell phone and a Bluetooth-enabled headset or helmet to make and receive calls on the go. You can also call points of interest through the Zumo Bluetooth interface — perfect for last-minute change of plans or a quick stop for food and fuel.

Focus on the road by following spoken street names and navigation commands. The Zumo 590LM can transmit voice prompts to your Bluetooth headset or helmet. Garmin Real Directions guide like a friend, using landmarks and traffic lights, rather than hard-to-read street names.

Garmin Zumo 590LM Motorcycle GPS 4.1 5 11 11
Best Garmin GPS so far Compared to the Garmin 660/665 it is a large upgrade in software more so than hardware. The software on the 590 is a lot more like the software on the Garmin Zumo 3597LMT (car GPS). It looks almost identical but has more features. Some cool features: 1. When in the car cradle switches to car mode and you can have seperate settings for routing options and such, motorcycle mode when in the motorcycle cradle. It also changes the keyboard layout for the mode you are in. 2. So far the bluetooth has worked flawlessly. The GPS can connect to anything that can link to a phone. I have the GPS connected to my car bluetooth and my phone to my GPS. That way all calls go through the GPS. I am still able to play music from my phone to my car. 3. Works with Sena 20S headset. If you want GPS directions while you are connected to another headset, you have to have it connected as GPS with HFP. That means no stereo music. You can connect the garmin to the 20S as a phone with multimedia and get stereo sound but when you are talking to another rider, the GPS will cut off the conversation to play directions. This is a limitation of the Sena 20S. 4. The traffic updates are excellent, even better than the FM receivers used by the 3597LMT. 5. The display is very good in daylight, better than the 660/665. I haven't had any issues with the GPS but never really had issues with the 660/665. This is a rock solid GPS. October 3, 2014
Good, but expensive Other than the price, this unit is the best motorcycle specific GPS I have used to date. The bright screen is visible in sunlight and I am still finding features and shortcuts that make it far superior to the Zumo 660 it replaced. Direct audio streaming from my iPhone and Pandora are welcome additions. September 15, 2014
Great GPS, but it should be. Best Garmin Zumo yet, but that's not to say it's perfect. I really do like having the USB port, but sometimes it would lock up when I had my ipod connected to it. Other than that, the screen is easy to see even in bright sunlight and everything else is really good. August 19, 2014
Zumo....one better Long time GPS user here......seriously...my first one was a GPS 12....long long time ago. Coming from a Zumo 660 (1st gen), the 590LM is a familiar piece of gear. It is indeed larger by a bit....thus making this far from a hiking GPS. It has several features (phone link, and Virb remote) that made it interesting to me. Given I'm on dirt...probably won't use the tire pressure sensors...but that's kind of a cool feature too. It's everything I was used to....and several new features. I think the absence of an internal speaker is the one thing they missed. August 18, 2014
Fast GPS for your Moto This product does everything it's meant to do. The fascinating things to me that it does well: 1) It's very fast and responsive. Even with gloves on. Recalculates routes very fast! 2) Even in direct sunlight you can see what's going on. It's like its a combination of LED and LCD. It just works. 3) The size is not too big and not too small. I have a large adventure dual sport bike and I have it mounted to a touratech mount on the handlebar mount. Works great and fits even better. I don't know what else beats this for what it does. Should it be less expensive? Probably. If it holds up for years to come, all my expectations will be met. August 6, 2014
Garmin did a good job with this device I needed to replace my older garmin motorcycle gps and this unit hit the mark in every way . it is easy to use has a large screen that can be seen in sunlight without a visor and is waterproof. I was able to move all my data from the street pilot such as waypoints and favorites. I like the fact that i can customize the data seen on the screen like gas food and hotels without having to do a search . The only downside is the lack of easy integration with google maps. July 21, 2014
Expensive but worth it Down side, "avoidances" need to be just that. As a sportbike rider, I am not interested in gravel roads. Unfortunately, we still find ourselves backtracking at times to find pavement. Upside, we have ridden numerous routes that are new to us. It can truly make heading to the same old destination a new adventure. Having the ability to find fuel, food, etc. is beyond beneficial. July 7, 2014
Motorcycle specific but with serious shortcomings and pricey I purchased this GPS based on the glowing reviews and features. Unfortunately it did not live up to my expectations. 1. This unit has no internal speaker when used with the non-ram mount. 2. This unit did not come with an AC adapter. 3. There is no integral glare shield. 4. The overall physical size is huge for a 5 inch screen. 5. It is overpriced by a factor of at least three times. 6. I have small hands and even with lightweight gloves on it often takes 2 or 3 presses to activate a "button". This is hardly "motorcycle friendly"... I just purchased a Garmin GPS (for a car) for under $180 that is functionally equivalent (albeit without weather-resistant features). I could have purchased four of these for the price of the 590.

Jim M: Taking a risk on the latest and greatest. Don't kid yourself, motorcycle specific NAV systems are the way to go if you ride. Jun 8, 2014
Niels M: Upgrade from my Zumo 550. Love that I can power my smartphone from the mount & get real time traffic from my phone via the Smartphone Link app. After 7 years of ownership, my 550 was becoming a pain to update, was slow & didn't have trip capabilities like those offered in Basecamp, so it fell back to routes.

Faysal I asked: I'm confused about something. If I want to mount this temporarily (e.g. on a rental bike) and don't want to hardwire it to the bike's battery, can I run USB charger from the GPS to e.g. a 12V outlet (assuming I have the right cable of course)? It appears from the accessories that come with it that you HAVE to hardwire it if you're using the enclosed mount. Surely that can't be right...? Jul 13, 2014

Michael S: I'm no electrical expert - but I did install my ZUMO 590LM myself without issue. The ZUMO will only work on a motorcycle if connected to the included motorcycle cradle mount. This mount includes a rather large harness/bundle of wires, including the hot and ground wires that need to be connected to a power source. I wired mine directly the battery. While there is a USB port on the back side of the GPS unit used for connecting to a PC for charging and GARMIN updates, etc. - I do not know if that same USB port could be used to power the unit while riding and not directly hard wire the harness wires to a power source. It seem feasible that might work - however, I have read from other GPS owners (different Garmin units) that this type of connection is not water-proof or secure and the USB connection can create issues over time (vibrates loose). I do know that certain motorcycle features on the unit will only work when attached to the MC cradle (and NOT the car cradle included in the box). For example, resetting the fuel settings (miles remaining per tank, etc.) can only be accomplished in the MC cradle mount (and not while connected to the car mount/adapter). Using the additional car cradle mount utilizes a powerlet/cigarette style power plug for your auto.

Sorry I cannot be more definitive... good luck!

Mike M: After I was aware of your question, I went out to try to see if I could hook my Zumo 590LM up to my car with just a USB cable. I used an after market USB cable and connected it up to the car charger. It worked fine and indicated that it was charging. I DIDN'T try to us the Garmin USB cable that was provided. I also had to connect directly to the 590LM mini USB port. I'm not sure want type of connection the Garmin supplied car mounting plate has, but none of my USB's or the Garmin computer USB would fit. Only the Garmin supplied car charger with the cigarette type adapter would connect to the plate which then connects to the 590LM. I hope this helps!

Samuel F: The unit comes with a motorcycle mount and a car mount. The car mount simply suction cups on, uses a 12v outlet for power, and has an internal speaker. The motorcycle mount has lots on cable on it for audio inputs and outputs and no internal speaker. You could in theory wire a 12v outlet onto it and tie up the cables, or use the car mount on a ram mount but you may not get audio as you likely won't be able to hear the small speakers. Garmin tech support is much more helpful than the written manual and could tell you if the bluetooth audio connection would function while using the car mount. Jul 14, 2014

Craig F: Hey Faysal, I just installed the 590 on my BMW . I did hard wire it and it was very easy to do. I wired it to the battery because there's a fuse in the Zumo wiring harness that should protect a direct wire. I"m under the impression that the UBS connection is for data transfer rather than power. The other reason I wanted to hard wire the device was for a more secure connection. Good luck! Jul 14, 2014

Faysal I: Thanks John. That would be exactly what I'm trying to do. Do you know, once mounted on the base, I would still be able to access the USB socket on the unit? Some of these mounts automatically 'block' physical access to the socket.

I don't mind bundling the wires away as a temporary solution until I'm mounting on my own bike.

Faysal I: Thank you Michael, that's very helpful. I guess they really want us to use the mount!

When the device is mounted, is access to the USB socket physically blocked, or would I still be able to run a wire into it - assuming I don't want to hardwire it, since I need to use this on a rental bike.

John G: One of the included accssories is a cigarette lighter (to USB) adapter for use in a car, so assuming you have provisions for that on the bike you should not have to hardwire. However, the wiring harness is attached to the cradle, so you will have to stow the bundle of wires. Jul 14, 2014
Reply to John Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Faysal I: Thanks very much Craig. I'm actually hoping to connect the unit itself (directly, not through the mount) to my Powerlet outlet. Is access to the USB socket on the GPS itself physically 'blocked' by the mount once it's mounted? Jul 14, 2014
Reply to Faysal Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Mark F: The included mounts are hardwire for motorcycle and cigarette lighter for car but the gps has its built in battery as well. So you may not have to power it at all for shorter rides. I have not tried this but should work. Jul 14, 2014

alejandro s: No, you do not need to hardwire it. It`s like using it in the car, you just plug it to the 12v cigarette outlet. I have my bike hardwire, and in my car I just plug it into the 12v cigarette outlet. Jul 14, 2014

fred g: To my knowledge there is no internal microphone. I have to plug in an external mic into one of the jacks.

For the cost of this unit ($$$$) I feel more features should have been included (i.e. an external speaker)...

The North American maps have lifetime updates. I would expect the South American maps would also have lifetime updates.
