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.

Looking for a twisty ride? The Zumo 590LM features Curvy Roads routing that navigates to winding rides. Round trip routing can plan your ride, according to time, distance or location. Just type in your requirements and let zūmo take care of the rest.

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 18 18
Just what I need but big dollars After reading several reviews for this product and others I found the Garmin to be far superior for the application I am intending it for which is the tire pressure sensor. The GPS function is an added bonus albeit very expensive. But like anything, you get what you pay for, and the peace of mind of always knowing what my tire pressure is trumps the cost. I found it very interesting as well..how much the tire pressure varies as you ride. Gives you a graph/chart of your tire performance which is pretty cool. July 16, 2015
A Touch of Luxury ..... The Zumo 590LM isn’t cheap, But every once in a while you got to treat yourself. It’s got all the Bells and whistles.. A+ June 28, 2015
Typical Garmin, which is a good thing. I have not yet learned how to use this GPS to its full potential, but I can tell you that I have been impressed so far. Lots of capability packed into this thing. The routing ha been solid, as it always is with Garmin. The user interface takes getting used to, coming from a Zumo 550, but it isn't bad. I have not used the music player yet, so no comment on how that works out. I have seen some complaints of the screen not being readable in bright sunlight. The only time that I have had any problem with this is if the sun is coming over my shoulder onto the GPS. In that case, there can be a lot of glare making the screen hard to see. Quick adjustment of the angle of the GPS, and the glares goes away. Pretty easy. So far, my two biggest complaints are these. First, what in the world was Garmin thinking with that power/accessory cable arrangement??? Please, just give me power, and don't make it a permanent connection. Second, I do not like the typing interface when the GPS is in the motorcycle cradle. The 550 had a much better arrangement, and the full keyboard setup is the best. I still have not figured out how to get it to default to that when on the bike. Anyway, if those are my only gripes. I guess that it allows how good this into its. Yes, it is expensive. Personally, I think it is worth the cost, but, then, I do ride a 990, so one can assume that I place a lower priority on price than I do on quality. May 25, 2015
Getting the best is worth it in this case When I think about what I want to buy or need to buy, there is always a pros/cons analysis that includes a thought of what value something brings. I studied hard when I was looking for a GPS solution for my motorcycle. I have a NUVI 2360, an iPhone, and old NUVI from years ago. If you just want to get from point A to B, then the above work great. But most of us who ride motorcycles want more. We are looking for those roads less traveled and have twisties that put grins on our faces. The GPS's above don't get you there. Unless i was in a hurry to get somewhere, all I used my phone or GPS for was to see where I was. If I got lost I put in a waypoint and said "Take me there". But along the way, I was missing why I rode a motocycle in the first place. Adventure. Now some will just get lost and find their way back. I could never knock that and it's great. But I wanted more. This GPS is the perfect one and is worth getting. Garmin will continue to invest into this unit with the price point it is at. They will be far less willing to leave it alone. Highpoints: Twisty road option that I wanted, works with gloves on, great screen in bright sun, send files from Basecamp easily to the 590, integration with a bluetooth headset/helmet, iPhone, and this unit is easy and works great. If you are going to buy something you really want that installs easily, works flawlessly, customizable, and will help get you some adventure on your journey; this is the one to get. The only thing that was tough to get used to is set up. Make sure you pair the GPS with the iPhone first. Then do a multipoint pairing with a Sena SMH10R. that works best. May 1, 2015
Initially disappointed, but without merit Setup is easy, good connectivity with Bluetooth devices. Initially I was not impressed with the screens brightness, though I later traced that issue to the fact that I wear polarized sunglasses. Once I traded them off to non-polarized, the brightness level was no longer an issue. I've owned many Garmin devices and have never been disappointed. Worth the money once you take into consideration that the accessories included, there is no need to purchase anything else, save for a case. April 14, 2015
Don't waste your money on this unit. Buy one of the older models. This is my 4th Garmin and my 2nd Zumo. The promise of a brighter easier to read screen is without merit. My old first generation Zumo is better even with the smaller screen. I wish I hadn't wasted my money on this unit. And yes, I have the brightness set to 100% and on the power cradle. The unit is so dim its worthless. November 23, 2014
Expensive but I don't regret the purchase. I enjoy using this greatly. I enjoy easily adding iPod capability without buying expensive adapter for my radio. The mapping function worked great on a week long trip we took from Texas to Tennessee and North Carolina. Bluetooth worked great with phone giving me weather and traffic info. Will attempt to route you around traffic if there is a shorter route than what the delay is. The only thing I have come across that I didn't like was that I have not been able to get it to announce guidance commands through a bluetooth adapter that I have plugged into my aux input, it will do music from unit but no directions. So I have to run cable from audio out to my aux input. Love the curvy route option also. Went through a heavy thunderstorm with it and had no issues and works well with gloves on. Is on the expensive side but for me was well worth it. Worked great with my virb camera also. Was able to start and stop recordings and snap pictures going down the road. I am very happy with it.

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

Chuck C: It is designed for a motorcycle. Apr 30, 2015
John R: I want to upgrade from my Zumo 550. Mar 31, 2015
Cord H: It was either this 590 or the 390 which didn't have the best reviews. Main reason was for the tire pressure monitoring system TPMS. I find that I forget to check tire pressure until I feel the bike handle differently..thought it would make up for my lazy forgetfulness ....being said...pretty pricey but think it will be worth it just for the safety aspect Mar 12, 2015

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. Jun 8, 2014
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

Pete D: There is no speaker on the mount. There is a connector on the cable head that will allow for an amplifier to plug in. The amplifier would power a pair of speakers. a set of small earbud headphones MIGHT work on the speaker connector un-amplified, but you would probably have no volume control Jun 23, 2015
