  • Summary: Still getting used to some of the features. Only gave it 4 stars as you cannot, cannot see the display in the sun. I also wish we could hear the prompts through our old helmets and did not need Bluetooth.

  • 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.

Pricey but competent...

  • 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!

Great gps imho.

Christopher Staples, Amazon

  • 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.

So far so good

  • Summary: Only had it for a couple days now but so far I like it. Upgraded from a ZUMO 550. Only thing I miss from the 550 is the built in MP3 player, the 390 doesn't have that feature.

Helpful but far from perfect

C. Kelley, Amazon
9 January 2014
  • Summary: I got the Zumo 390LM for longer road trips. I plan to ride Route 66 and the Garmin Nuvi (I have two) are not visible on the motorcycle. I also wanted something that would give audible instructions via my Scala Rider intercom. The Zumo delivers on the connection with my Scala. The visibility is better that the Nuvi in sunlight, but not by much.

Feature rich but beware of some "issues"!

Mikael Liljegren, Amazon
9 January 2014
  • 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.
