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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Disappointing downgrade from 550
The hardware probably is good, but that may be the only thing, rest is junk, compared to 550.

Transferred tracks recalculate when imported, so all the hours you spend on the inadequately designed base camp software are lost.
The on-the-fly route creation is almost intentionally disabled, or just don't work.
You can not create a route from scratch on the device, like you used to with 550 with ease, interface just sucks.

Large screen is ok, but again you are always wondering if you are on the route you planned, or the one garmin decided for you.

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.

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.
