Good features, but very difficult to see in bright sunlight

Ian, Amazon
5 May 2015
  • Summary: Brought this last week and used it for the first time this weekend during a trip to the coast on my Bonnie T100. Its fast and responsive with very useful features, HOWEVER, as other reviewers have noted its pretty dreadful in sunlight, and I'm not talking full glare midday sun either, more like an...

  • Summary: I have not installed it on the motorcycle yet. The little time I used it in the car is not enough to rate it.

Zumo 390 -vs- 550. The 550's better (in my book)

Canard_Av8r, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: I've had a Zumo 550 for years. The 550 is "friendlier" when it comes to phone interface. The 550 is MUCH EASIER to see the screen in bright daylight conditions. I put my 390 on "Night" screen not long after I got it as it was nearly impossible to read in direct -or- bright sunlight.

Sunlight readable I think not.

Legs "road user", Amazon
14 November 2013
  • Summary: The unit is okay for me as I use the mini plug to plug into my motorcycle. For me the problem is that the unit documentation states that it is sun light readable, well that's not true it's better than the Nuvi line but the old Quest2 is truely a sun light readable if only they wouldn't mess around...

Nice unit ruined by awful software

MR P R HARDING, Amazon
24 June 2014
  • Summary: A very nice unit as you'd expect for the price. The fitting instructions are confusing, and nothing is identified: hunt for your washers and spacers, they are in there, just not packaged with base plate. The software (downloadable separately and free) is a complete load of birds mess.

Excellent but flawed

  • Summary: I would like to have given it five stars as its an excellent SAT NAV and does exactly what I wanted it to do on my motorcycle with the added bonus of having a car kit supplied as well. However...

Best of a bad bunch

Catmik, Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: Incredibly expensive, hard to use, not particularly advanced software & PC software (BaseCamp) truly awful compared with Google Maps. Still, there isn't much choice for motorcyclists, at least the outside of the unit is compact & sleek, unlike the mini suitcase that is the TomTom Rider...

Garmin 390 lm

Graham Larrington, Amazon
21 February 2014
  • Summary: We have and continue to use a Garmin 550 on my wife's bike. I expected the new model for my bike to be even better, it's not, while certain features are better and the touch screen is lighter to use but the very cheap mounting system does not lock the unit in place, a small screw holds the 550, it...

nichts schlecht, aber zurückgeschickt

Ralf, Amazon

  • Summary: Ich habe mich an Testergebnissen orientiert und mir den 390LM schicken lassen. Optisch sehr schön, Helligkeit in der Sonne gut und deutlich lesbar. Verarbeitung 1a Das anschließen an den Computer ist einfach und hat ohne Probleme funktioniert.
