Pat, May 12, 2013 I bought it for my bike but took it to Eurpoe first. I have found it easy to begin using.
Chuck, May 11, 2013 Got it. It was easy to get started. There is more advanced notice for turns than I expected. Plenty of time to change lanes ect. Works great.
Wolfy, February 20, 2013 Well as you know there aren't many option for a motorcycle. I've used a Nuvi 3490 for the last couple years with baggies to cover when it rains. I purchased a new Goldwing and decided to put all my eggs in one basket. It does it all on one unit and the more I use it the happier I am with my purchase. It does take a bit to get used to but they give you both the motorcycle mount and one for your car. So put it in your car and play with it. After a week of use I am very happy with it.
Biker 666, December 5, 2012 This unit is the current top of the Zumo line, but has some
shortcomings. Maps are easy to read, most touch-screen
buttons work well with gloves, lifetime map updates
included, much clearer audio directions than some competing
brands. Does everything it is supposed to and as
The cons are significant:
1. Map detail is far too low. The map area on the screen
is reduced by other information there. This would be ok,
but the size of road lines, the vehicle icon and the letters
are far to large for the limited display area. This means
you can see very little map on the screen at any given time,
in any detail to be useful. Insufficient control of what is
displayed at various detail levels. My ancient GPS-V had
this beat to hell.
2. No street names are shown while traveling other than
your current street and (if zoomed in enough) any
intersecting streets. Nearby streets that don't intersect
the one you are on have NO LABELS! So if your destination a
couple of blocks off the road you are on, there is no way to
find it visually.
3. Automatic routing is bizarre. But aren't they all? GPS
units haven't yet found the right algorithm...like, for
example, use the past tracks to determine what your route
preferences are! Routing is best done manually.
4. Phone audio using the Zumo as a bluetooth gateway is
UNACCEPTABLE! It is completely unusable in this mode. When
I try to split the pairings so that my phone goes directly
to my bluetooth headset, and the stereo audio from the Zumo
as well, the Zumo monopolizes the connection and will not
let the phone work. I have used such a configuration with
other devices successfully, just not with the Zumo.
5. The display is really quite bright, but still cannot be
seen when the sun is directly on the display. Pretty common
problem with any GPS. This one may be better than most.
Having said all that, I would buy this unit again. There
are workaround for most of its problems. But if you are
expecting to pair your phone with it, then use it as a
gateway to a bluetooth helmet...forget it. The audio in
that mode is unintelligible.
