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.

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.

Good GPS This GPS is great device. You can see the screen all time Because your size. The applications are easy use. If you are out USA you have buy another map of your country. I did not installation in my motorcycle, a certificated technical Motorrad did, but the instructions are clear. When I'm riding the gps works perfect. June 9, 2014
Must Hardwire to Bike To mount it to a bike it must be hardwired. It comes with two cradles, but only the cradle with the wires has the holes for a Ram mounting ball. This is a fatal oversight as I want to power it with USB wire to cigarette lighter so that I can move it to my other bike. June 7, 2014
Very capable unit I've had the Garmin Zumo 590 for a couple of weeks now and have been using it daily, and there's no reviews yet so I figured I'd post one up. The unit comes with a RAM motorcycle mount system. I have RAM mounts on all my bikes and they work great, this system is no different. It's a U-bolt to a RAM ball, a short coupler arm, and another RAM 1" ball to an AMPS plate which screws to the back of the Garmin mount. It's solid and very adjustable, I was able to make it work in portrait or landscape orientation on my bike. However, there is no built-in security so you'll want to make sure to remove the GPS unit and take it with you or lock it away when you stop. The unit is an "LM" which means lifetime maps. It doesn't have built-in traffic or weather services, however via the Garmin Smartphone Link app on you can add those services separately. The Smartphone Link app is free and will get you basic weather (temperature display and area forecast) on the Zumo. To get full traffic, weather, and traffic camera services via the app is another $30 (they are separate purchases, but that is the total). But hey, you got $30 in Zilla cash by buying this unit from Revzilla so go for it. I had a little trouble getting the Smartphone Link app to work but I just disconnected and re-paired the units and it worked OK. They pair up automatically every time I get on the bike no problem. I haven't gotten a bluetooth headset to try out the phone functions, but there is a speaker in the automotive cradle and it worked fine through there. Also the Pandora app is compatible with the device and you can control it through the Zumo via bluetooth, that did work fine for me. I also purchased the Garmin TPMS sensors. The setup for the sensors is a breeze and they paired up just fine. If I use the unit off my bike (in a car or on another bike) it does complain about not seeing the sensors which is a little annoying. But it's nice to see my tire pressure while riding. They have setups for two wheel motorcycles, three wheel motorcycles (two front/one rear, one front/two rear, or sidecar), and quads - so pretty much any configuration is supported. I purchased another motorcycle cradle and RAM AMPS plate and put an SAE end on the power cable so I can move the units between my bikes (all my bikes have a battery tender cable and a RAM ball, so that's all I needed). Installation of the cradle on the bike went smoothly. The cables are long and a little bulky so you will need to wrap them up with some cable management. There is a USB cable that only runs Apple products (Android phones won't even charge from it). There is also line in, line out, and mic in jacks. I haven't used any of those, but just have them wrapped up. The software and maps are typical Garmin, it's pretty much all the same. The service history log is really just a record of something you want to record and the mileage you did it. It has a lot of pre-built ones (front tire change, oil change, lubricate chain, rear brake pads, etc.) but you can delete and add your own. The fuel range feature is something where you can set your miles per tank, and you can setup a warning for XX miles left in the tank and it will alert you. You have to remember to reset the tank when you fill up. Not useful if you switch vehicles with the cradle as you'll get out of sync, but might be useful on a bike with no gauge or a quad. The lane diagrams for exits are really nice, it shows you exactly where you need to be and gives you enough time to get in the proper lane. The Garmin data has speed limit information for many roads, but not all, and sometimes they are incorrect. The unit has settings where it can let you know that the route it calculated has tolls and will ask if you want a different route with no tolls. It also has an option to turn off Auto Recalculation of your route if you go off course which can be helpful as well if you loaded a trip that you planned. The processor seems plenty fast (no delays when panning around the map) and my unit has about 2.4GB free of 7.02 GB when plugged into my computer. It can take a micro-SD card in the battery compartment as well. The PC connection is a micro-USB jack that is under a rubber protective cover. The screen is very readable in bright sunlight. The colors don't pop as much but the contrast is very good - you won't need to try to shade the unit with your hand. At certain angles you can still experience a little glare but it hasn't been much of a problem, you can just angle the unit differently. Leave a comment if you have any other questions about the unit. May 26, 2014

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

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

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
