There's plenty positive, so I'll just list the negatives that caused me to return this (even after I did a lot of work to hardware it to the bike).
1) It's a motorcycle GPS that claims to find curvy roads. I was going to my favourite destination near home and it kept on insisting on boring busy roads even with the adventure setting set to highest. TomTom found the best path, so did all the phone apps. But not Garmin. No, sir.
2) Trying to plan a trip is a serious pain. I don't have windows, I can't say how good or bad base camp us. But in this day and age for such an expensive GPS, there's no app where you can create a good route (you can send waypoints to the GPS, but it's not intuitive). There's no web app, like Tomtom does. I honestly expected there to be an app or at least a website where I could create the route that would then sync with the device. But no.
3) it has a really cool "track" feature that logs statistics of your trip. You get home and it asks you if you want to save it. But once you save it, you can't see the stats at all. You can't bring up that UI. Your only option is to take a picture before saving it. What the hell? Who came up with that half-finished feature???
4) It has popups. It literally has popups. When you're riding and get a notification on the phone, a popup comes up telling you there's a Smart Notification that you can't see because you're riding. There's an OK button. If I can't see it then ignore it. Or use a banner. Or a sidebar. Or something. But popup? What is this, 1995?
5) When you're navigating, there are all these hidden menus. Click on different parts of the screen and different things happen. It's a TERRIBLE UI for a motorcycle GPS where using your hand to control something is downright dangerous. All I wanted was to mute the directions.
6) it's customizable (that's really good). But what you can customize is somewhat limited.
I am really disappointed. In this day and age, getting a dedicated GPS instead of using a Smartphone means I expected it to be much better than a Smartphone for the one job it's supposed to do. I am sad to say, it's not better than free apps on Smartphones, and that's really disappointing.
Software is really buggy. Have to download Garmin Express to use Garmin Basecamp to plan a route on your computer. You'd think it would be one app. Then there is ANOTHER garmin app for your phone. Connection issues, does not download from the Unit to Basecamp... Connections drop from the Zumo to my phone... Twice called customer support, to which they have sent the concerns in to the software department to do an update. 10 days connection issue fixed, but still cannot download the maps in basecamp to my computer to make a route. Works ok for a gps, while riding but planning a trip using the Garmin software has not been a good experience so far. Waiting for the next update ugh!
Purchased from Amazon warehouse, not brand new but in very good condition, my beef with Amazon is when searching for this item it listed a number of buy options all of which were more expensive than this one, today(day after receiving) I searched again and found the same camera brand new from an external service provider for the same price (+$2). therefore I could have had a brand new device for the same money. The item I did buy is used as it had some saved maps from trip taken using it. If I did not need it now I would return it and bought the NEW device.
Goal: To follow GPS guidance over a specific route to a specific destination.
I’ve had several Garmin GPS units over the last 15 years, and I’ve used them for several hundred thousand miles. I’ve been impressed and pleased over these miles and years until . . . My new Zumo XT has proved to be an unacceptable challenge.
All my previous Garmin GPS units had a wired audio connection. The Zumo XT uses Bluetooth only, and it took several weeks communicating back and forth with Garmin Support before I could listen to navigational prompts and music using my custom Challenger Earmold speakers.
Here's my experience the last weekend in April 2021: 1) I planned out a route using Basecamp. I transferred the route to my Zumo XT. We followed the route for an hour and a half until about 30 miles from the destination. Then the Zumo changed the route to a series of small twisty backroads instead of the route I had planned. We got to our destination and I wondered what heck? I looked up the route on the Zumo and clicked on “map.” It showed my original route with no mention of the detour that it had taken. 2) Two days later I headed home. I wanted to ride home using roads other than freeways. I clicked on “home” and it routed me onto a major freeway. I tried to route it to a town that would keep me off the freeways. I had done this before using several older Zumo units. But on this occasion, I needed a street address in order to get a route to a town. 3) I sadly returned home using highway signs and memory instead of using my new, but soon to be landfilled, Zumo XT. Edit added 5/9/21 - Increased from one to three stars. I've found work-arounds for all of the challenges except why it didn't follow the route to the end of the trip. I've still got the route and will be following it again to see what happens.
Display is bright enough to read in full sun, however for $500 you would expect: - Computer interface/support to be better than the 1990s vintage Base Camp program provides. - The required computer interface program "Garmin Express" to be robust, not unreliable and quirky. - Decent documentation - Garmin's online documentation for both Base Camp and the device itself is pretty worthless. A couple lines describing the feature you're trying to figure out how to use. I could go on but to summarize, The device hardware seems to be very good, but Garmin needs to seriously overhaul and update its software environment.
Great functionality except for bluetooth streaming from phone. This Zumo is a big leap from the 395LM. More suitable & flexible motorcycle routing. Jabbering Having traffic, weather, and radar via phone a significant improvement over traffic via FM receiver in power cable. My biggest complaint is the unreliable busyness audio streaming. Using with a Sena SMH-50S and a Pixel 3 phone, I could stream music from the phone rarely. I got it to work properly twice, but only until I walked away from the bike. Updated all devices to layer drivers. Deleting and re-pairing everything didn't solve the problem. Unable to get any support from Garmin (they ignored emails). (I have had support issues with other Garmins.) Ultimately bought a newer phone, and seem to be getting better results. (Samsung S21 has more Bluetooth channels).
Low rating due to consistently poor Garmin customer support.
I shelled out $500 for the Zumo XT 9 months ago, I'm selling it on eBay, basically it STINKS! 1). They don't keep the maps updated: San Francisco closed a significant portion of Market Street to vehicles in January 2020. 8 months later, the Zumo kept trying to send me down that portion of Market. :-( A couple of months ago, Zumo told me to make a left turn and after a whole bunch of honking behind me, I noticed the no left turn sign -- I'm lucky no one rear-ended me. 2). It keeps changing its mind while navigating in the city. Look up to see if the turn is approaching, glance down and Zumo has decided it likes a different way (and oh by BTW, you passed it a block ago, 'recalculating...) -- It happens a lot, on the same ride. My friend was watching my location with FB while joining for lunch and he said I looked like a mouse in a maze. 3) Misc: It won't work with my helmet bluetooth audio (Garmin rep tried to tell me it is the audio system, but all my other devices work with it); the brightness will sometimes just leave full bright mode as you start your ride so ya can't see in full sunlight (gotta stop, fix it, go), and all the negatives the video guy said. Maybe it's just me, but I like using Waze on my iPhone. I just works, period. With that said, I'm selling my Zumo, with a car kit and carrying case (an extra $100 worth of stuff) on eBay. I'll post tonight or tomorrow if you are interested.
Here is the definition of a disaster: Your $500 GPS falls off the motorcycle while riding in traffic.
To mount the Ram adapter to this $500 GPS, Garmin provides a plastic adapter bracket. That adapter includes a spring loaded tongue that fits in a slot on the back of the GPS. A plastic tongue with less than 1/16th of an inch of contact surface to keep you in possession of this expensive GPS.
Out-of-the-box, this adapter BARELY locked into place. I think that if I pulled on it, it would pop off, and the fitment looked poor with gaps between the bracket and the GPS unit.
I am puzzled as to how they designed a $500 unit with this kind of cheap mechanical design (and or manufacture). I won't continue with the installation.
It does some creative things like designing an interesting round trip for a ride. On the other hand, creating a trip with multiple specific stops is not intuitive. And saving that trip for future use is going to require delving into the manual - that's not helpful. It should do these standard kinds of tasks without a manual, but it doesn't. Previous Garmin units were not so sophisticated but they got the job done without studying a book to figure out how to do it. The mount is innovative, but, because of that mount, the unit is not transferable to a second vehicle. I read reviews before buying and I'm not sure what would be better, but if you can find something that's easier to use, buy it.
