Summary: The Zumo 390LM was purchased as an upgrade from the Zumo 550. My one major complaint is that unlike the Zumo 550, no locking motorcycle mount is provided with the 390LM. Aside from that, the 390LM is an exemplary motorcycle GPS.
Summary: This is my first GPS for a motorcycle so I can't compare it to previous models. It's rather grossly overpriced and does not offer many features beyond what you would get on a non-mortorcycle (and thus non weatherproof) version costing hundreds less. While the Zumo uses the same RAM mounting system as other GPS brands, you can't easily disconnect the power-cord from the bracket. When installing, plan and run your wiring first!
Summary: In comparison to the larger and even more feature rich ZUMO 590, this unit will not take up as much space mounted on your motorcycle. It actually makes quite some difference, so if you can live without the extra features provided on the ZUMO 590, I'd go with this unit. Operation and customization of the unit itself is flawless. However, the software provided by Garmin to plan routes, BaseCamp is not as intuitive and easy to use as one would wish.
Summary: I received in early March. It worked fine for they few times I was able to get out on my bike due to weather. The GPS is hardwired into electrical system. Went to use today and GPS will not fire up. (Fuses were checked, plugged into cigarette lighter and light on cord came on, but not GPS and have plug into computer and not working) Cannot return through Amazon as they only give a month. Have to deal with Garmin.
Summary: Works great so far, didn't get the tpm yet so can't comment on that. A little hard to see in direct Sun but most of the time it's fine. May try a sunshade. Really nice to know what's on the next exit. Food and gas are easy to see and which direction off the exit which is much better than our old system of just winging it and hoping there was gas, and if you've ever traveled in remote areas sometimes it's not so easy to find fuel.
Summary: The only problem I have is you have to use a Bluetooth headset to here the voice commands and receive and send phone calls. plus if you use the Bluetooth headset you can't use your CB on the Goldwing still looking into hold to fix this problem.
