It is a nice unit that has a lot of great features. The screen is great. The biggest issue for me so far is the manual. It has only the most basic information like how to turn it on. Most of the features you have to figure out on your own. Despite the the poor manual it seems to be a really nice unit.
The unit functions well. I've run it on multiple trips and had no issues with it. I even downloaded Basecamp for a long, complicated route we had to take as part of a race event I was providing support for. I loaded my route into the map, sent the file to the GPS, and it worked flawlessly, though locating the routes took me a google search. It's Apps, then Trip Manager, then load saved routes.... I'll save you the Google Fu.
It pairs great with my phone, so I can send directions to it from my Android from google maps with no problem. It also notifies of on-screen of incoming text messages or other notifications, though you can turn that off if you don't want it. I like how when streaming music on my phone to my headset, even though I'm not using the GPS for music, the next song title will appear briefly on the bottom of the screen for about 1-2 seconds before disappearing.
The only real con I've seen with this unit is the internal keyboard. I absolutely HATE the internal keyboard. Rather than a smaller qwerty style, it's split into two screens. Half the keys are on the left side, then you have to press the right arrow to see the right half of the keyboard, and then another button takes you to numbers. Typing in names just sucks. Thankfully, I can do that from my phone and send it over but I'd be MUCH happier if it had an option to choose between this keyboard and the normal Garmin layout tall my other GPS units use.
It comes with a wiring harness to wire the weather-proof housing to the bike as well as the ball and clamp to mount it your handlebars. If you're familiar with wiring things to your battery, this should cause you no trouble. It included plenty of length of wire and red/black round terminal rings to just fit over the posts of my battery. Installation took me 15 minutes, 10 of which was spent trying to route the power cord through the mount housing properly. It's not very intuitive, but after you mess it up once, you'll figure it out the second time with no trouble.
So far I'm very impressed with the unit - but they need to fix that infernal keyboard layout!
GPS good with bright screen and sensitive touch. Will cost hundreds of dollars to use on more than one motorcycle conveniently. Additional cable $39.99, mount bracket $19.99 and mount $59.99 are required to make it easy to use on additional motorcycles. If you have mounts that use 1 inch ball you still need the listed parts for the robust power connection this unit employs. These parts are difficult to source at this time. Bluetooth from phone has noticeable delay and it is hard to manage. Volume on my air buds barely adequate. May work better with other devices. Ease of route planning mostly limited to Base camps inherent limitations and Garmin's poor support. This being said, I like the GPS itself, it is a huge step up from my NUVI.
First off, I bought the Zumo XT to replace my venerable Zumo 550. While the 550 is still very functional, it's lack of up to date features and limited memory (can't load all of N. America) have become a pain.
I delayed updating to a new Zumo because all the interim models Garmin has released had significant issues that detracted from their value. The XT shows that Garmin has taken those issues to heart and finally brought their motorcycle products up to par with their other offerings. By that I mean that I recently retired from an aviation company that was the largest Garmin dealer in the US purely because we completely equipped our fleet with Garmin products.
Pros: I haven't touched many of the features yet in the two days I've had the XT but almost everything I ever wanted in a motorcycle gps is there. I especially like the onboard trip planner, the weather radar overlay and, especially, the speed limit reminder on the main map screen. I have just begun to play with Garmin Explore, Basecamp and many other features that are new to me.
Cons: First I'm very disappointed in the motorcycle mount. The Zumo 550 mount had a robust mount and screw lock that never made me question the possibility of losing it or even having it stolen if left unattended on the bike. Secondly, also on the subject of mounts, the car mount for the XT is a huge step backward compared to the 550. With the 550 I could leave the mount stuck to a plate with the power cable installed on the mount. Then it was just a matter of popping in the 550 and closing the latch. Turn it on and we're on our way. With the 550 I have to open the weather cover on the back, install the power cable then put it in the mount. When I don't have the XT in my truck I'm left with a power cable dangling from my power receptacle if I have to remove it and stow it somewhere. Very inconvenient compared to the 550. Lastly, on initial setup I connected the XT to my Interphone F4 headset, then my phone, then my home wifi, then the usb power and completed the updates. After playing for a while I shut it all down and went out to install the mount and cable on my motorcycle. When I went to test it on the bike the bluetooth connection to my Interphone F4 headset had been lost. When I went to re-establish it the XT recognized that the Interphone was there but when I selected it and tapped ok the setup ended, the pairing lights went out on the Interphone and the connection was not made without any indication. I tried to pair the Interphone dozens of times, even resetting bluetooth on the XT and pairing devices in different orders to no avail. Per Garmin specs the Interphone, which I've used with my Zumo 550 for 10 years, is supported with its BT2.1 and A2DP profiles. I finally resorted to online chat with Garmin support. When the Garmin person said they never heard of Interphone and didn't guarantee pairing with every headset I knew it was a lost cause. The support person never acknowledged that I'd paired the device, sent me an email containing the online troubleshooting steps (which are worthless) and abruptly wished me a good day and ended the chat. Standard useless Garmin support when they realize an issue is way over their head.
So, I just ordered a new Cardo headset. I hope this addresses the issue. BTW, my bluetooth full face helmet works just fine. I just hate wearing it in the summer heat. I far prefer my half helmet with a working headset this time of year.
Love the new Zumo XT. The display is amazing in sunlight. The unit is responsive and works very well. So glad I upgraded from my old Nuvi. The down side is Garmin is playing games with the map licensing. You can no longer install maps used by this GPS to your PC for use in Basecamp. Basecamp only works when the GPS is connected and is VERY slow compared to having the maps local on the machine. No idea why they took this capability away for the new GPS model but they did. Likely to sell you the maps later for PC use.
As far as the device itself I have no real complaints it gave reasonable performance as a GPS both on road and when I was running 4X4 roads and what was likely a goat trail that was not even on USGS maps. It even managed to stay on My KLR 650 at highway speeds (which is like sitting in one of those chairs that tries to vibrate your fillings out) and didn't fall off when I was trying to ride like I was on a small dirt bike vs my green pig and ended up horizontal a few times.
Setting up routes can be a little bit of a pain but I admit I'm not that great using Base Camp so that may have been the reason also I was trying to route off road mostly where "road" is a very generous definition
If I have any complaints it's the cost of additional mounts for the unit, If I wanted to use this GPS on another Motorcycle it's about $120 for a mount set if you want power to the unit and about $80 if you just want the mount at $40 for a power cable that thing better be made of platinum and be willing to help me lift my bike when I drop it again in the dirt.
