OLATHE, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the new zūmo 395LM and zūmo 595LM motorcycle navigators. The
rugged, weatherproof1 models offer Garmin Adventurous Routing™
so riders can select the level of twists and hills on every journey. The
zūmo 395/595LM presents innovative features specifically designed for
motorcyclists with the introduction of rider alerts, helpful smart
features, new streaming music options and much more.
“What’s exciting about the new zūmo models is that they are designed to
find those adventurous winding roads that riders typically crave,” said
Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “The ability to
stream Spotify music will also enhance the thrill of every ride.”
Garmin Adventurous Routing™ options elevate the ride by finding routes
with curves and hills, while limiting major highways that offer
unchanging and often wearisome roads. In order to enhance the adventure,
both zūmo models allow riders to control music and media from a
compatible smartphone or MP3 player.2 The 595 model lets
riders stream popular music services2 such as Spotify®
and Pandora® right into their headset or helmet (sold
separately), offering easy control options using the glove-friendly zūmo
Garmin recognizes safety as a top priority for motorcyclists – that’s
why both zūmo models include new rider alerts to help increase
situational awareness. Riders can be notified of upcoming sharp curves,
nearby red light and speed cameras3, animal crossings and
many other useful alerts. In addition, riders will be prompted with
relevant state helmet law notifications (US/CAN) when crossing state
The new zūmo devices allow riders to make and receive calls4
while their hands remain firmly on the handlebars. Spoken directions can
also be heard when paired with a compatible headset or helmet (sold
separately) in order to stay conveniently connected during a ride.
The zūmo 595LM model can pair seamlessly with the Smartphone link app5
from Garmin to give riders access to new exciting features for
motorcyclists. The use of the app allows the zūmo 595LM to conveniently
display smartphone information alongside the navigation screen. Riders
can view texts, app notifications and other helpful data such as live
weather radar and traffic (subscription may be required). Additionally,
the new LiveTrack feature lets riders share their ride so friends can
track their location.
The new motorcycle navigators offer a rugged, glove-friendly design that
can endure fuel vapors, UV rays and harsh weather.1 The
bright sunlight-readable display of the zūmo 395LM has a 4.3-inch
touchscreen while the zūmo 595LM boasts a high-resolution 5-inch
transflective touchscreen display to further enhance visibility. Both
devices include lifetime map6 updates for North America along
with motorcycle-specific points of interest (POIs) such as repair
services, dealers and more. The new devices maintain the legacy zūmo
features that riders have come to expect. Some of these features
include: Dynamic Fuel Stops, which suggests fuel stops based on the
distance the rider’s fuel is expected to last; the Service History Log
to help simplify bike maintenance records; Roundtrip Routing allows
riders to plan their route based on time, distance or location;
preloaded Foursquare® data offers millions of new and popular
places; and Garmin Real Directions™ guides riders using
recognizable landmarks and traffic lights.
The new zūmo series is compatible with Garmin VIRB® action
cameras (sold separately) to start and stop recording footage directly
from the zūmo display screen. Riders can also monitor motorcycle tire
pressure on the zūmo display with the Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor
system from Garmin (sold separately).
The zūmo 395LM has a suggested retail price of $599.99 and the zūmo
595LM is $899.99. Both devices are expected to be available in April of
this year. For more information, visit garmin.com/zumo.
