Customer Reviews for Garmin Sat-Nav - Zumo 595LM
Excellent piece of kit ...10 stars
I bought this after a lot of searching on the web checking reviews ..as it's expensive and I needed to get it right...This is replacing my old TomTom V5 which is getting a bit tired now ..on opening the box first impressions of the unit it looked a sturdy piece of kit ...The Unit Cradle and wiring loom looked a bit daunting when I first opened the bag with 6 wires and I thought there would be a lot of head scratching but took me less than an hour with tea breaks to fit ...The 3 jack plugs I hid in the fairing as I won't use them the USB port I fed through to my seat compartment and will come in handy for a music loaded usb stick ..I had fitted the battery and did the instructed unit update prior..stuck the satnav in the cradle and booted up in seconds ....The maps are crisp and informative and worked great with gloves on ...what I love about this unit you can have it in landscape or portrait mode ...yet to find out what works best ...The added bonus with this satnav is that you can use it in your car and comes with all the fittings for that purpose now how good is that !! .I have Sena 10s Comms works great ..There's so many things I could ramble on about...check out the reviews they speak for themselves...Garmin have pushed the bar up... Happy Biking...Stay SafeRead more
Perfect piece of engineering from Garmin
After years of using the 590LM, I find the 595 not really the revolutionary step forward, but a sturdy and trusty piece of machinery, built to last and work more than your bike. Never ending rains, unbearable sun could not affect in any way this little Sherman of navigators. Well done, Garmin!Read more
my first sat nav
At 70 this is my first sat nav. I have found the Garmin Zumo 595 very easy to fit to my Harley V Rod, and just as easy to use. I would recomend this to every one. A fantastic productRead more
Great service as usual even in these trying times ,got the nav fitted works great,why buy anywhere else.Read more
First Garmin Motorcycle Sat Nav
Sportbikeshop delivered promt; will be my new favorite shop. The mounting was easy and I'm happy to have usb power supply for charging I phone. The bluetooth with Sena 5 and I phone works well. All the set ups are done for first rides, very comfortable Navigation,.....every day new improvment ......Read more
I personally went for the Garmin as I use their GPS products on my pushbike and have never had problems, so far, that can be said of the 595 Zumo. All the mounting systems are in the box, including a car one should you need it The screen size is just right and sits perfectly in the centre of the bars on the Tracer. Wiring up is simple with enough cabling to route where you need to. I have mine paired to my phone and headset inside my helmet...works perfect. No locking system so we dont leave it on the bike, but there's a YouTube clip on using a small padlock on the release button, bit fiddly. Nor had an issue with brightness and the Screen works gloves on no trouble its early days but very pleased. There's a USB socket in the cable loom for charging, nice touch.Read more
Arrived well packaged and on time, the bike wiring harness was fitted in 20mins. Only given it 4☆ as I haven't had chance to use it properly due to lockdown. I don't foresee any problems as Garmin have a reputation for ruggedness & reliability.Read more
Excellent - bad wiring harness
This sat nav has excellent features and is so accessible and easy to get used to. The only downside is the damn mount! The wiring harness that comes hard wired to it, has all of these extra bits for sound and USB charging, but they are so long if you aren't confident on chopping them all down are extremely long! I had to fit them all cable tied in a bunch behind my TFT dash (Tracer 900 GT). Other than that awesome strong bit of kit, comes with a car mount and a motorcycle RAM mount which is on the smaller side so you may need a larger one to fit your handle bars.Read more
I upgraded to the 595 from a 12 year old zumo 550. There are a lot more features on the 595, and although I'm still learning about some of these, it looks promising. I'm not sure I really need all the connections that come with the bike mount which take up a lot of space, but time will tell. My only complaint at the moment is that it doesn't come with a carry case. That seems stingy considering the price of the unit.Read more
Perfect Motorcycle Sat Nat
Everything I expected after considering several options and reviews. Connected effortlessly to my iPhone phone and Sena10S. Well built quality product from Garmin and great service from Sportsbikeshop as always. Very happy with the purchase.Read more

Product VideosGarmin Zumo 595LM Overview
Garmin Sat-Nav - Zumo 595LMAdventurous Routing
Featuring Garmin Adventurous Routing options for those twisty, hilly, terrain-hugging rides you love, Zumo 595LM is the motorcycle navigator that's built to thrill. Its large, glove-friendly 5.0inch high-resolution touchscreen can be viewed in either landscape or portrait mode. Transflective technology gives it a bright, crisp colour display that reduces glare and is easy to read in sunlight. Round trip routing can plan your ride, according to time, distance or location. Just type in your requirements and let Zumo take care of the rest.
The Power of Bluetooth
Synchronize your Zumo with a compatible smartphone and a Bluetooth-enabled headset or helmet (sold separately). Safely stow your phone in a pocket or pannier, and still have the benefit of hands-free calling without diverting your attention from the road. You can also receive customisable smart notifications for calls, texts, app alerts and more that appear right on your navigation display.
Enjoy Some Traveling Music
Want to take your own soundtrack along for the ride? Your Zumo also lets you control music and media from a compatible MP3 player or smartphone, right on your touchscreen display. You can even stream the playlists you love from the popular Spotify music services.
Keep a Sharper Lookout with Rider Alerts
To enhance road awareness and encourage a safer ride, Zumo 595LM provides helpful alerts for sharp curves ahead, speed changes, railway and animal crossings, school zones and more. Additionally, you're notified when you're about to drive the wrong way on a one-way street. You also receive alerts for nearby red light and speed cameras. Plus, for longer rides, a fatigue warning will even suggest break times and potential rest areas worth considering after hours on the road. The Zumo Up Ahead feature lets you easily see places of interest and milestones along your route, without leaving the map view on your navigation display. Plus, Easy Route Shaping lets you add a point on the map to adjust your route, so you can ride through preferred areas or follow specific roads.
No More Running on Empty
A built-in trip computer with digital fuel gauge comes standard with your Zumo 595LM. So it's easy to estimate how many miles you can ride before you'll be running on empty. Dynamic fuel stop alerts actually prompt you when it's time to refuel and even provide petrol station location options. A helpful speed limit indicator lets you know when it's time to throttle down. Plus, a digital compass display and a database of motorcycle-specific points of interest (POIs) are on hand to help you locate repair services, dealers and more. There's also a Service History Log on your Zumo to help you keep track of service dates, mileage and performed maintenance on your bike.
Guidance Using Recognisable Landmarks
Garmin Real Directions on the Zumo 595LM virtually redefine the concept of spoken turn-by-turn directions. In addition to speaking street names, your Zumo offers guidance using recognisable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights. And thanks to Foursquare data, Zumo is preloaded with millions of more new and popular places to explore. In addition, the Garmin Direct Access feature helps simplify your navigation to select complex destinations, like shopping centres and airports, by providing detailed location information once you reach the recommended entrance.
PhotoReal Junction View displays realistic views of junctions and interchanges on your route to ease navigation through complex interchanges. A brightly coloured arrow on the Zumo display, along with helpful voice prompts, will indicate the proper lane position needed for your next turn or exit. The Zumo 595LM displays 3D terrain and elevation information. There's also a TracBack feature on Zumo that allows you to navigate the same route, in reverse, for your return trip.
VIRB Camera Compatibility
To record the highlights of your ride, Zumo 595LM is compatible with the Garmin VIRB series of HD action cameras (sold separately). Remotely control VIRB - start and stop recording all from your Zumo display. It's easy and fun to record and relive every adventure.
Tyre Pressure Monitoring
For added protection on the road, Zumo 595LM is compatible with the Garmin Tyre Pressure Monitor Sensor (TPMS sold separately). One TPMS is required for each tyre and will work with metal valve stems only. TPMS uses wireless technology to transmit the tyre pressure data, letting you view it in real time right on your Zumo display.
Tough and Road-ready
With a rugged design that is resistant to fuel sprays, UV rays and harsh weather, the Zumo 595LM is built for life on the road. Zumo is thoroughly vibration and drop-tested to withstand just about anything you can ride through.
Ride Smarter with Your Smartphone
What's happening on the road ahead? Zumo 595LM can connect you to live weather radar and traffic information via the wireless Smartphone Link app. This app also enables LiveTrack, a nifty feature that lets friends track your whereabouts whenever you're out on a ride.
Lifetime Map Updates
Zumo 595LM includes free map updates for the useful life of your device, so routes reflect the most up-to-date points of interest and maps available.
Easily find addresses and millions of POI. Just type what you're looking for into the Search Field.
More Information at a Glance
Zumo 595LM displays speed limit, current speed and time of arrival. With a quick glance, you can read the name of your current street. As you drive, you can easily see places up ahead - like fuel, food and ATMs - without leaving the map.
Especially for Off-road Adventures
Zumo 595LM supports TOPO and custom maps, so you have the freedom to download and follow your own adventure (additional mapping sold separately). Zumo 595LM depicts 3-D terrain so you know what to expect as you ride through the landscape. With TracBack you can navigate right back to where you started along the same route.

Questions and Answers
will this product fit directly onto my 2014 Triumph Tiger 800 abs without having to purchase further mounting brackets. thannkyouFebruary 27, 2020
Unfortunately as this is a universal product we are not able to advise on specific fitments and instructions. The product does come with a motorcycle mount and hardware however.
Senna Bluetooth headset in my helmet. Will it link up with the Garmin ?June 5, 2019
The Garmin and Sena will connect with no issues.
hi I have a 1998 triumph Trophy 1200 do you have a kit to mount a garmin sat-nav to my bike thanksMarch 19, 2019
Unfortunately we do not have a mounting kit for your Trophy, apologies. We would suggest asking the question on an online Triumph forum, as other Trophy owners must have encountered this issue.
Hi, I have a wired autocomm intercom on my BMWR1150RT....currently fitted with an ancient Garmin street pilot. The audio output is wired via a jack plug into the intercom. Does the 595 have a wired audio output which is compatible with the intercom system? Also - does the 595 have an internal speaker for use in a car or does it require a separate speaker ?March 14, 2019
Garmin have confirmed that this Sat-Nav is equipped with a wired audio output. The 595 does not have an internal speaker, but the car mount does.
I have a Triumph Bonneville America 2015, will this fit without additional kit?March 7, 2019
The motorcycle mount and hardware included with this Sat-Nav should be compatible with your Triumph Bonneville America 2015. An optional fork stem mount can be purchased if the location is preferred over handlebar fitment.
I have a Garmin Zumo 660 which is now US. Would the 595 be compatible with the cradle for the 660 . Many ThanksFebruary 26, 2019
Unfortunately the Garmin 660 and the Garmin 595 use different mounts.
Does the USB attachment allow for charging of any usb powered device ?February 25, 2019
Unfortunately this is for input only.
Will the Zumo 595LM fit my Triumph Explorer 1200 XCa 2016 model (normal not TFT clocks)?February 21, 2019
The Zumo 595LM is supplied with a universal motorcycle mount and hardware, but we are not able to advise on specific model fitment, apologies. As long as you have space on the handlebars to fit the clamp, it should fit.
Will the fitting kit supplied work with my 2017 Bonneville T120?December 18, 2018
As long as you have space on your handlebars to fit the mount, this will work in your bike.
If I purchase the Zumo 595LM for my 2013 Hayabusa(Brembo) model, what fitting kit would I need and what kit would I need to permanently wire it to my battery. Thank YouJuly 10, 2018
The wiring loom to connect the sat nav to the battery is supplied in the box. The only way that I can see to mount a sat nav would be by using a Ram Fork Stem Mount. This item will fit hollow fork stems that measure between 12-33mm. If your fork stem fits into this range then the Ram mount should fit.
Hi What extra parts would be needed to fit to a 954 fireblade? ThanksJuly 5, 2018
You will need the Ram Stem Mount kit, quick find number 157380. As long as the hole in your head stock is between 12-33mm this will allow you to mount your sat nav.
Hello I have a 550 Zumo and love the ability to play back audio books from Audible on it via the SD card and player. Is the 595 as capable of allowing playback of Audible audio books as the 550 is? IanMay 14, 2018
The Garmin Zumo 595LM, when connected to a smart phone, will play back all audio from the mobile phone including music, radio and audio books.
Will 590 zumo base be compatible with 595 lmMay 4, 2018
The base is compatible.

You do not have to, but it is always a good idea to register the device with Garmin and update the maps.
Hi, I have got a Kawasaki GTR1400 GT will the fitting kit (included with the sat nav) fit on my bike without having to make any additional purchase. CheersFebruary 15, 2018
You may be able to secure the included RAM mount onto the handlebars, where your clutch reservoir bolts/mount is positioned. You will be able to remove these bolts, place the RAM mount over the top and secure the included longer bolts in place. Alternatively, you can purchase a RAM Motorcycle Fork Stem Mount. This may be easier to fit.
I understand the Garmin 595 has European maps, but how easy is it if I am wanting to load maps of New Zealand and USA?February 12, 2018
For World Maps, you will have to log on to Garmin's website and purchase the required region. Garmin recommend that you download your chosen/purchased regions to an SD Card.

The motorcycle mount that comes with the zumo 595LM, does it clamp onto a rubber ball that is placed into the steering coloum? I know it as a RAM mount.February 2, 2017
The Garmin Zumo 595LM does not come with the stem mount, this would need to be purchased separately.
