The GPS itself works as expected. Once I uploaded waypoints and routes generated in Basecamp (Garmin’s proprietary, sometimes glitchy route-planning software) the unit navigated without complaints. Over the last few months, the motorcycle-specific nav tools have come in super-handy (Speed Camera Alert), and I’ve dug the hands-free Bluetooth for my phone. Garmin Real Directions on the zūmo is a step up from the norm too, because it doesn’t just speak street names, it also uses recognizable landmarks, buildings and street features (e.g., “make a left after the pizza joint”). And zūmo is preloaded with millions of popular locations, so you get detailed location information—for, say, a store within a mall—once you reach the recommended entrance when using the Direct Access feature.
