I wiring in the Zumo 595 w/ a massive cord harness. I also have installed a J+M CB radio w/ it's associated wing in same area. I only need the Zumo's 3.5 mm for sound promps and music. The rest I must hide away. I tried to locate the GPS wiring along the steering neck, but way too bulky. Then I relocated the cords behind the windshield area, still too bulky. I'm not sure what to do yet. Any suggestions w/ this massive cord set??




                                                                                                                           Thanks;                             Howie...

I have a 590LM. I just snipped off all but the power wires, right below the wire junction block. I don't expect to ever need any of the other functions of the extra wires, but if I do, I'll just buy a new harness, and deal with the bulk then  Wink

I just ran it up under the fairing on one side.  Hasn't come out in 2 years.

How do you like the 595LM?  I have a Zumo 550 and I am looking to upgrade but I don't want to be right back in t he same situation where I can load the whole NA map in the device at one time.  What do you think of the screen readability?

Thanks
John

You can fit a whole NA map with an SD card installed.

My Zumo speaker recently died.  It's working like my last Garmin - locks up randomly and requires the battery to be pulled to work again.  I think it is a heat problem.

This will probably be my last Garmin.  I have a phone app - Ride with GPS - that I really like, and I'll probably use my phone (or an old phone just for maps) when this one dies.
