About the Garmin zūmo® 395LM
Motorcycle GPS navigation for every rider
Motorcycle GPS navigation for every rider
Whether you're a daily motorcycle enthusiast or a weekend-only driver, you'll appreciate the Garmin zumo 395LM's ability to keep you from getting lost. More than that, it'll help you keep your bike in good working order, and its built-in Bluetooth® technology keeps you connected. Free lifetime map updates mean it'll always be up-to-date with the latest changes to roads and destinations.
Built to brave the elements
The zumo 395LM features a 4.3" color touchscreen in a rugged waterproof housing that also withstands damage from ultraviolet rays and fuel spills. It comes with detailed maps of the United States, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and more, plus millions of preloaded points of interest. You can also upload your own favorite stops and create custom routes for favorite adventures.
You don't want to chance a last-second lane change for upcoming turns, so let Garmin's lane assist with junction view keep you on the right course. You'll also see realistic views of complicated interchanges — including highway signs — to help you get your bearings. As with most Garmin navigators, you'll get text-to-speech voice prompts at turns, so you'll hear "turn left on Freedom Drive," instead of "take the next left." And the zumo will let you know what accommodations and services are right by the nearest exit up ahead. Garmin's TracBack routing takes you back to your starting point along the exact same route you traveled, so you can revisit favorite spots.
Rugged handlebar mount
Attach the zumo 395LM to your bike's handlebars with a rugged mount that features an integrated power cable and headphone jack. Garmin includes the necessary mounting hardware for your bike, plus additional windshield mounting gear and a power cable for your car or truck when you want to leave the bike at home.
The experts at Garmin know how the exhilaration of taking a particularly curvy section of road can really solidify your relationship with your motorcycle, so they've developed Adventurous Routing options to guide you through routes which let you really hug the terrain. Simply adjust your preferences for hills and curves, and the zumo will take care of the rest. It'll even help you avoid major highways if you prefer to take the scenic route whenever possible.
The zumo 395LM provides alerts for sharp curves ahead, speed changes, railroad and animal crossings, school zones, and more. You'll also get a heads-up when you need to check state helmet laws, or when you're about to head the wrong way down a one-way street. The zumo 395LM will even point out nearby red light and speed cameras in select areas. And it can even recommend a pit stop when you've been driving for too long without a break.
More travel extras
Easy Route Shaping lets you add a point on the map to adjust your route, so you can ride through preferred areas or follow specific roads. Trip planner and trip log features help you record your journeys and plan for future rides. The zumo's "Where Am I" emergency locator provides your exact location in an instant, displaying nearby emergency services if help is needed.
Keep track of your bike and surroundings
A built-in digital fuel gauge keeps you aware of how much you've got left in the tank. You'll even get fuel stop alerts to prompt you when you're due to top off the tank and a list of nearby gas stations. The speed limit indicator can help you stay on the right side of the law. The included Service History Log lets you record date, mileage, and performed maintenance on your bike's tires, chain, oil, spark plugs, and more.
Take care of tire pressure
With an optional Garmin sensor, you can see your bike's tire pressure on the zumo 395LM's screen. You can monitor up to four tires in any configuration, with one tire pressure monitor sensor required per tire.
Works with your Bluetooth headset or helmet
The zumo 395LM's built-in Bluetooth wireless technology connects with your Bluetooth enabled headset or helmet so you can hear the navigator's spoken directions over road noise. And if your helmet or headset's paired with a compatible phone, you can use the zumo 395LM to place and receive calls without touching your phone. You'll be able to call up destinations like hotels or restaurants from the road to make reservations without stopping.
Mobilize your music
If you've got a newer iPhone or iPod touch, you can pair with the zumo 395LM to control your digital tunes and hear them through your Bluetooth helmet or headset. You can also connect your portable music player through the zumo mount's USB port and enjoy your tunes through the navigator. Or you can add MP3s directly to the zumo and play them as you ride. The zumo's built-in music player's controls can appear right on your map screen for convenience.

Over all this GPS is pretty good. The two things I don't like: when you have gloves on, it is hard to type new addresses. Also when you pair a listening devise, the instructions for your route come too late to your ears......unless you go 20 miles/hour, or less!!
