Get turn by turn directions right in your ear with the zumo 595LM GPS System from Garmin. Designed for motorcycle use, this GPS device connects to an optional headset or helmet to provide directions, make calls, or even listen to music. You can even add an additional headset for a partner if you choose. Curvy Roads routing directs you to the nearest set of switchbacks so you can air it out a bit. A service history log lets you keep track of oil changes, spark plug swaps, new tires, and other maintenance. You can even set your bike up with a Tire Pressure Monitor System using optional equipment. Multiple mounts are included so you can use it on your bike as well as your car. Rider alerts warn you about sharp curves, state helmet laws, as well as speed cameras. The orientation of the screen can be changed from landscape to portrait.
To enhance road awareness and encourage a safer ride, the zumo 595LM provides helpful alerts for sharp curves ahead, speed changes, railroad and animal crossings, school zones, and more. Additionally, you're notified when you need to check state helmet laws so you can be in compliance even in an unfamiliar state. It will even provide warnings if you're about to drive the wrong way on a one-way street. You also receive alerts for nearby red light and speed cameras. Plus, for longer rides, a fatigue warning will even suggest break times and potential rest areas worth considering after hours on the road.
