Garmin Zumo connector compatibility
« on: April 07, 2021, 04:24:17 am »
Hi all Zumo user, my trophy came with a Zumo mount, but without device.
1) are all Zumo version fit the same connector / mount?
2) which one is the "best" (visibility in California sun, screen size, voice quality over BT, other quirks you noticed)?
3) can I update the maps over the Internet? does it cost extra?
3) anyone selling his or has a tip where to get one for a reasonable price?

Thanks (and apologies if this has been answered previously, maybe @coconut can reply with the link :-)

I would expect that you have either the Garmin 600/660 or 595 Cradle fitted.

They ARE different and you can't use the 600 series in a 595 cradle or vice-versa :




For bright sunlight I would recommend the newer Garmin Zumo XT .

Specifications for all available Garmin models are available at www.garmin.comm

I have a Zumo 350 and the cradle is different to the ones shown by Coconut.
Mine only has 2 pins to supply power to the device.

If you can, post an image of the mount you have so it can be identified and hopefully you'll get more specific help

The 660 is a very solid, reliable and stable unit with pretty good audio quality. It's still a "current" device and should be able to be updated to current maps. Due to their popularity they come up used quite frequently sub £100. I have had no issues connecting the 660 to the Trophy SE, Cardo (Schuberth SRC), Sena (10U) or Samsung phones up to S5.

Thanks for all your replies. I am away from the baby until Tue  :191: So I will post a picture then.
From what I remember it looks like a 595 cradle, it read "Zumo" on it too and did not have that "cheeks" with the screws in.

Specially to Coconut: We expect nothing less than reading it all  :046: I line up with all those who buy you a beer when in the area (San Francisco).

Are the maps kept current at Garmin? Does it tell me the "Scenic route with the twisties" ? I am only used to the TomToms and the iPhone apps of this world that guide you on the boring, short route and at best avoid traffic.

picture next week...

The latest Garmin Sat Nav devices usually have "Lifetime Maps"
( Meaning the Lifetime of the Sat Nav - not the owner ! ).

Some previous Models had "LM" appended to them such as the Garmin 595LM
to indicate "Lifetime Maps", and these were transferrable from one owner to the next.

Updates are either via the Internet using "Garmin Express", or on later models
such as the Zumo XT, they can be updated via a Wi-Fi connection to the Internet.

Motorcycle specific Models such as the 595 and Zumo XT
have the "Garmin Adveturus Routing" feature, but again -
check Garmin's web site for details - depending on the Model you get.

Cheers  :821:

TomTom Rider 550 gives you the option of taking a more fun route.

Word of warning - the "Adventurous Routing" option can get you into trouble half way up a Swiss Alpine mountainside on a bike as big as a Trophy.  I found myself on farm track hairpin roads covered in cow sh#te.  :005:
 Scariest ride of my life, although the cows were bonnie looking things as they jangled their bells in admiration of my riding skills, not that I had the time nor the inclination to stop  :008:
