Summary: The price is steep, but it's totally worth it. I bought this for the BMW GS and it's so easy to use with gloves and the display is super easy to see day and night! I got rid of the Nuvi in the car and NOW use the ZUMO in its place. Awesome GPS with a ton of features!!
Summary: Even though it's expensive, I think it's worth the money. It's hard to see this screen in direct sun light when I'm using it on my motorcycle, but I'm on a motorcycle in the direct sun light, so I kind of expected that! I like the Service History App, on this Garmin. It doesn't actually remind me when service is required, but if you fill out the mileage when you actually preform the service, it will store this data for you to review.
Summary: This model is intended for use on motorcycles, but it is nearly useless in bright daylight. It's almost impossible to see the screen on sunny days, but can be read easily at night--exactly the reverse of when most of us ride. Also, when using the map function, there is very little detail. I'm not at all satisfied with this very expensive unit.
5 things you need to know before you purchase this Garmin Zumo 350LM Motorcycle GPS !
26 July 2014
Summary: This Garmin Zumo 350LM was highly recommended but has issues for many. 5 issues for me. 1) Worked for 8 months and then completely stopped working. I am now waiting for replacement from Garmin. 2) Amazon only supplied the GPS alone and not the motorcycle handle bar powered mounting base and cable connections most come with and required by the manufacturer. Without this powered mounting base you loose the primary charging option it was designed with.
Summary: This the one for all riders. I ordered the 665 and returned it after 4 days. Do not buy the 660 or the 665. The 350 has features that have been removed from the newer models making the 350lm the leader of all motorcycle gps. Easy to change routes with out a laptop or pc. On the road friendly and easy to operate when riding. Thats makes it safe and easier to justify the money spent. This is one unit where you actually get your moneys worth.
Summary: Cursing the day I purchased this. All was good until 1 month outside of 12 mnth warranty period when the Motorcycle power supply became intermittent. Contacted Garmin at 14 month period after reading many online posts confirming this as a common issue. Garmin only interested in selling another cable but another $50 / year each year to replace the power cable when it fails again isn't very reasonable. It is now a very expensive car only GPS.
Garmin Zumo 350LM bad software some quality issues and crappy screen

Summary: I have had my unit for 6 months. The second time I used it in the car cradle the socket broke. I have owned numerous Garmin and this has never happened before. The cradle piece was replaced by the store but they made me pay for shipping(which was almost as much as the cradle). When I got the new cradle it doesn't fix properly and will fall out if you move it down. A couple of weeks ago I was using the 350LM in my car on my way to Indianapolis from northern Michigan.
Summary: This is the worst gps I have ever used! It locks up constantly and the programing is very difficult for a motorcycle unit. Save yourself 600 dollars and buy a car gps for $60. Whoever programed this gps should be Fired!
