I recently purchased this Zumo 595LM and used it for the trip pictured below. The GPS simply did not work. I called Garmin several times on this trip and tried to correct the problems but nothing worked. I also purchased a new SD Card at the suggestion of the Garmin Customer Service Tech and again, had many terrible problems as described below. This Garmin GPS is simply not ready for use. I returned the GPS to the seller and was actually going to buy it again just in case I had a bad unit. Low and behold, the price to re-purchase has gone up $100 so I chose not to purchase another and will use my functional 550 or 660.
Problems encountered with the Garmin Zumo 595LM
1.) Dreaded "Cannot Calculate The Route" Error. By far the biggest problem with the GPS is that it constantly throws a "Cannot Calculate The Route" error and freezing up. This error would appear randomly and most often at the worst possible time; when you needed the route.
Obviously, calculating a route is really the only thing any GPS absolutely has to do correctly and this one does not do that. At least three times per day, I would look at the GPS and see a large screen error saying "Cannot Calculate The Route". When I attempted to clear the error and look at the map, the screen would be frozen and no inputs could be made. This required that the power button be held down (keep in mind this is a motorcycle GPS so it occurs while riding a motorcycle at speed) for 12 seconds and reboot the GPS. Once the GPS reboots the first time following this error, it does not locate the satellites. The second try causes it to revert back to standard operation and NOT to the route you were following. To get back to the route you were following, you have to press the power button a single time off, then again back on and then it would locate satellites and give the option to re-start the route. AGAIN, being on a motorcycle at speed and doing all of this at a time when you most need to know directions or for an impending direction change, you miss many turns. I missed turns at least 10 times over a 10 day period on the pictured trip below. This is a horribly unacceptable problem.
After having this occur at least 10 times, I pulled over to the side of the road and called Garmin customer service. The suggested solution by the first Garmin customer service tech was to turn off my trip tracking or breadcrumb function because apparently the GPS uses the same memory for route/trip tracking and calculating that it does for keeping trip tracks. I like to keep my tracks and download them each day so this was a huge problem for me but I did reluctantly turn it off and within two hours, the same error occurred again. That solution did not work and I lost my tracks to boot.
The next day, I called Garmin customer service again. On the second call I was told that some SD cards do not work well with the Garmin 595. I was using a PNY 64gb class 10 card. I was told to remove the SD card and reformat it and then reload all of my data and try it again. I backed-up my data and then reformatted and then reloaded all of my data and tried it again. Within an hour, while trying to navigate San Francisco traffic to the Golden Gate, the GPS showed a "Cannot Calculate Route" error and froze up again.
Later that day, I purchased a new SD card, a smaller 32 GB Class 10 Sandisk, formatted the disk and then reloaded all of my data again. Two hours later, the same "Cannot Calculate Route" error came up when I was not even on a Trip/Route and froze.
2.) This is a motorcycle GPS and needs to be bright and clear. This screen is not bright and the fonts used are very small. In short, it is very difficult to see and read in sunlight. Likewise if you are wearing brightly colored clothing such as a motorcycle safety vest, the reflection virtually wipes out the display. Sunlight and bright clothing tend to be prevalent in motorcycling so this display problem is an issue.
3.) With a PNY Class 10 64GB SD Card the GPS could not find MP3s on the card. In order to make it work marginally, I had to reboot by holding the power button down for 12 seconds. When the GPS restarted, I had to enter the media player, switch sources to something other than MP3 and then save and then switch back to MP3, save again, and then the GPS would see and show the MP3's BUT would not play them. It would show them on the screen but the play button would not work. The next step was to change source again, save, change back to MP3 and then save again. Then, and only then, would the MP3's play. When I stopped for gas and the GPS lost power and shut down, I had to go through all of the steps above again.
4.) Bluetooth audio connection was problematic on three different audio devices. When paired and the audio begins, the audio quality is mono and not stereo and is very fuzzy and scratchy. I discovered that going back into the Bluetooth settings, unchecking (disconnecting) the headphones being used and then checking (reconnecting) the box, the audio quality would switch to stereo and become clear. Again, this procedure would have to be followed each time the GPS powered down such as at fuel stops.
Another really nice feature about the 595LM is the screen layout. As you approach an intersection, it tells you what the cross-street is that you are approaching. This may sound banal, but in practice this is extremely useful, as here in California street signs are often either absent or haphazardly placed. To me this is the most useful feature on the whole screen.
Streaming music and Bluetooth function. It is here that the 595 really shines. I can interface both my Sena 20S Bluetooth headset and my iPhone X directly to the Zumo. This allows me to control all of the music on my IPhone (a vast amount) from the Zumo, and also control the iPhone from the Zumo screen. The 665 would not reliably do this. The 595 will and does. This is a very big improvement and many 665 users drove themselves nuts trying unsuccessfully to get this to work. This means that the Zumo gives the rider the option to listen to iTunes music, listen to Spotify or Pandora, or listen to MP3s on the Zumo itself. The Zumo truly functions as the control center for all of the rider's electronics.
Garmin provides a free app which, if open on your iPhone while riding, will stream traffic and weather data to your Zumo. This is a very nice feature.
The 595LM is built very solidly and the screen is significantly larger than the 665. The unit appears to have better fit and finish than the 665, and they have the USB port where it is now easily accessible, unlike the 665 where it was completely inaccessible while the unit was in use.
Other nice features -- you can set the 595LM to ask you, when you make stops, whether you want to reset the gas tank setting. This makes doing that a snap. The bluetooth implementation is excellent -- I have had no problems pairing and staying paired with my Sena 20S headset.
I will update this review as I continue to use the Zumo 595LM and explore its features. For now, five stars. RJB.

This is supposedly designed for motorcycle use - on the road, not in the showroom! I have ordered a sun shade but frankly don't think it will make that big of a difference.
Unfortunately is spent my hard earned money to get this installed and now it would cost just too much to have it uninstalled and returned. I have looked on line and on the support site for help but have not found a solution.
I wish it had external speaker built in it
Route planning and hazzard warnings are a little hit-and-miss.
I was very disappointed with the 595 and sent it back!
