New GPS
« on: February 28, 2016, 10:34:05 pm »
Can anyone tell me if the TTSE will work with the Garmin Zumo 660lm or if it has to be just the 660.  They appear to be about the same.  There is a bit of a price difference and I was looking at getting the 660lm but don't want to waist my time or money.  Thanks. https://www.triumph-trophy.com/Smileys/light/187.gif

They are the same unit, the only difference is that the 660LM comes with lifetime maps (That's what the LM stands for) its the latest version of the 660.

The 660 is the older model now... if finances can stretch to it I would recommend going for the 590 or 595 which has a larger screen and still fits the Triumph mount.... It also has better software and will operate as a remote control if you have a Garmin action cam

+1 The 590 is so much faster at loading and calculating routes. Sharing routes with your friends via BT connection between two 590 is awesome too.

660 (with newer map sets,2015+) and Garmin BaseCamp are no longer compatible, you can create a route via BC load it to the 660 and it will drop most of the waypoints in the route.

I have a Zumo 665 (660 + XM) and it works fine with Basecamp and the latest (2017.1) maps. As said though, I would go for either the 59x or 39x models if I were buying another GPS.
