Verified Customer Reviews for Garmin Sat-Nav
Have charged up internal battery & obtained current updates. Good n sturdy, seems a tad heavy... not yet installed on bike.
I chose this over a TomTom because there's more capability to program your own route. You can also do this on a pc with basecamp or other app and load it on which makes route planning easier. Plus it's what my mates use!
Haven't wired the Garmen into the bike yet but have used it on the internal battery. Sound good, can hear directions at 70 if volume set to max. Lotys of updates and information as you ride.
Clear, bright display, easy to use and install on the bike. Mounting bracket for securing it to the bike seems a little flimsy but time will tell.
Purchased after 660 died
So far seem good, nice bright display lots of info speed cameras etc.
If you ever worry about getting lost, this product is for you. I feel it has given me the confidence to ride longer distances on my own. The screen is easy to read, even in the sunshine and it is very intuitive and easy to set up.
I've only ever used a TomTom previously so unaware of all the additional features packed into the Garmin product such as track route, find local hotels/restaurants and it was easy to connect to my phone and Sena SF2 comms. Off to Portugal in 2 weeks to test it out...
Great gps easy to use and install better than some previous versions .
Upgrade from the previous Garmin GPS, large, bright clear screen.
Easy to fit, just needs 12 volt connection to the included lead.
Pity it does not fit to previous Garmin mounting bracket.,
Had a 2012 model but needed more umph for Basecamp routes. This one delivers perfectly. Functions/options are easy to use. Mounting kit is excellent and l wired directly to my bike's battery with ease. Tested tin France recently; good value, superb purchase!
Bought for husband who is currently in France suffering days of torrential rain on his latest bike trip. "New GPS perfect. It works virtually underwater, couldn't have been any wetter in the sink. Easy to see, hammering rain doesn't affect the screen. I have been leading as it is so good. Campsites at a button push with reviews etc."
After suffering the BMW Nav-6 for a couple of years, this thing is a breath of fresh air. WiFi updates, easy import/export, with a bright and responsive (even in gloves) touch screen. There's even an adapter to let you mount it "native" on the Beemer in-built cradle. Just buy one, in Harlow.. obviously.
4* for now. Coming from TomTom because they haven't upgraded the 5th gen for 4+ years, not easy to convert from what I knew but seem to be getting there, love that you can load custom poi files and add an icon with selectable image not just a colour, not sure about the routing ,too much town work but again TT might have taken the same route, too early to tell
Excellent site to use, especially as a Channel Islands customer with the extra tax and postage complications. Very quick delivery. Just a bit gutted that through my insurance I received a 10% discount voucher less than 12 hours after spending nearly £300
Easy setup and installation also custom routes are easily made in google maps and sent to zumo xt via the Garmin drive app used this method recently for a couple of routes in the Brecon Beacons and all went smoothly. SPORTSBIKESHOP service was faultless as usual amazing service. Thanks
The xt in my opinion is overated. It has less trip functikns than my old rider550. It has some postive attributes dont get me wrong. It freezes up and needs a reset frequently, which is poor.. i dont trust it after a couple of months of using it.. the rider550 served me for 4 years and was 100% reliable..
Upgraded from the 346 LMT-S as it was slow and tiny. The Zumo XT is a massive improvement with size, clarity, speed, and a few software improvements. Not sure that the bigger screen will take the knocks that the 346 did, but do not plan to test this theory. Build quality excellent.
Initial software update and maps took an age and the unit is great. However, it loses a star for the buggy software and connections and for the cranky way Basecamp and Explore (route planning) doesn't work smoothly or intuitively.
Bluetooth connections need to be carefully planned when connecting multiple devices. Even after working this out the Zumo doesn't always work as it should. And the voice directions when playing media makes an awful cut in/out (still looking for a solution to this).
Upgrade from the old 340 series so familiarisation was pretty quick, Display and features seem very advanced by comparison. Not used it for long distance touring yet but looking forward to it. Data transfer from existing "Basecamp" files no problem.
That is once the faulty PC connection cable was replaced.
Many thanks to SBS for their "inevitable" rapid response. Impressive as usual.

I already have a usb power connection on my triumph can this plug right into that?February 7, 2023
Garmin do not advise powering a Sat-Nav from a USB port as the current is too low and could cause corrosion. The provided vehicle power cable must be used to operate and charge the battery simultaneously.
