I have a few complaints about this GPS. The display is not bright enough during the day. It's difficult to see in bright sunlight while mounted on my motorcycle. It was necessary to add a sunshade to make it useable in bright sun. It always shows your speed on the display, which takes up valuable space. I already have a speedometer, so I don't need another speed display. Unfortunately it can't be changed to a more useful parameter, like elevation or time to destination. However, there is another area on the screen that you can change to show different types of trip information. I think it's a little slow in automatically zooming in with detailed information for upcoming turns, but it's easy to zoom in manually at any time. It was very easy to change settings and navigate the display while wearing motorcycle gloves. Another plus is that it comes with a complete RAM mounting kit for a motorcycle. Overall I think it's a good choice for a waterproof GPS.
I'm a motorcycle tour guide, and need this for business. Garmin has always been solid, and for the most part I love this little unit.
The touchscreen is great, and it has nearly every road I'd want to take, except for some really funky side roads which it can struggle with. The maps are good, but not great (its not google maps, if you're used to those). It has nearly everything you'd want, but falls short on some of the details.
The PRO's: Price. For a solid waterproof GPS that can take a pounding, its hard to beat. - Ease of Use: really easy to use, with some nice features. The live traffic updates are useful. - The RAM mount ---- I love that they added it, and it mounts on nearly any bike out there with standard sized bars.
The CON's - - The software sorta blows, if you're planning out a long trip. Basecamp could use a serious upgrade. IT works, but you gotta dance to make it work. Whomever said its straight out of the 90s was dead on.
- Your settings will overwrite things sometimes and change your routes. I didn't like that part, and had to put in my own, extra waypoints to keep me on the routes I wanted to ride.
- The mount: its killer if you want to hard wire it to your bike --- I didn't. I use an AC Adapter so I can move it to another bike, and ended up sawing a corner of the mount off just so I could make it work with a standard AC adapter. that part, could have been thought out a little bit better.
I'm happy with it, it works well and has a lot of features. Its just a hair short of getting that last star which would have made me love this thing.
Startup instructions minimal. Downloaded topographical maps, mostly for use for hiking trails, took ALOT of effort to get installed even after buying mini SD card because instructions are outdated and inaccurate and doesn't even tell you how to switch maps on the GPS, had to figure it out myself. Nice it has wifi connection to check for software updates but you still have to use USB to the desktop app to download the additional topo maps and install them to the GPS. I wasted a lot of time displaying the topo maps in the desktop app and using screen clips to gif files only to find out after pushing them to the GPS they're not readable by the device (oops). After a day, figured out how to access the topo maps but not until after several retries to download to gps as I though I was doing it wrong. Yes, the screen's a little small but the wifi is available whereas the newer larger unit doesn't have wifi. The other thing is this unit has no 'walking' mode! But, there's nothing else quite like this unit so although it's not perfect it is probably good enough. I bought direct from Garmin the auto mount/cigarette lighter power plug too. Will update review after a few motorcycle rides and auto trips.
I got this unit for use on an off road quad, It was to replace my Colorado which is getting harder to see. IT is NOT the ideal replacement for OFF ROAD. It will not run near the variety of useful maps I have and is missing features the Colorado has. Best I can say is it is a very bright display and it will be on the RAM mount But the Colorado will still be along in my pocket now!
This is a great unit for my motorcycle. It has many, many features some of which I have not gotten around to using. The touch screen has good response even with gloves. I am still learning how to make the best use of the features. I seem to have issues with the Garmin unit and my Sena 10R headset but a lot of those are probably user error. Overall I think it's worth the money to have more features and not use them than have less features and need them.
I’ve used the GPS for two days. The GPS works well so far. The GPS is clearly rugged and weather resistant. The mount is stellar. The supplied power cable with converter is adequate. (I’m concerned how long the 12V to 5V converter will last in the hot environment of a motorcycle.) However, the USB cable stinks! It does not charge the GPS. I thought the GPS was broken until I tried a USB cable that came with another Garmin GPS I own. The GPS charged just fine with the other cable. Come on Garmin. Spend another 57 cents for a better USB cable. Supplying such an obviously inferior USB cable disparages your brand name.
The unit is high quality and very user friendly. Take a little time reviewing the menus, some do not seem to be where you would assume they should however the menus are very easy to navigate. You will need to use Garmin Basecamp, it's a free download from Garmin.com that's used on your PC and you design routes then upload to the GPS unit. When I created my first route I was using all way points, if I deviated from the route the GPS kept rerouting me back to the last way point. This was my fault because I did not understand the Basecamp program. It turns out there are "way points" and "shaping points" in the mapping system. Way points you have to drive through and if you deviate the GPS will reroute to the last way point, shaping points are points between way points and you can deviate from those. There are some good tutorials online that will teach you the difference. Take the time to learn the Basecamp program and the GPS will work perfectly for you.
This is my first and only motorcycle GPS I've ever used, so I don't really have any real comparisons to give. However, I can share that I just rode 2,600 miles with it as part of the Trans America Trail and it was worked very well. The touch screen was better with motorcycle gloves, which is ideal, and the Zumo was plenty tough to make me feel like nothing was going to break it. The mounting and wiring is solid. The screen was visible under any lighting/conditions. I feel very comfortable knowing that my next trip will be guided by this Garmin GPS. Worth the cost.
I replaced a 10-year old Zumo 220 with this unit. The Zumo 396 is a great unit with awesome features but in one important area it fall short of the old Zumo. The screen does not appear to be as bright (important in sunlight while wearing a tinted helmet shield) and the text on the screen is smaller, fainter and harder to read. So a key shortcoming for an otherwise nice unit.
