Wonder why anyone would purchase a zumo350LM with less function than they could purchase a zumo390LM -- and for the same price???

Maybe Garmin Sales just hasn't caught up with Garmin Marketing and Production.

Hmm. I just called them and they were willing to give me a $99 credit if I sent in my 350. Not going to happen.

Bummer...I'd be crafting my letter to Cliff Pemble. It's pretty obvious that they screwed up and you really shouldn't have to absorb their mistakes.

If I were writing a such a letter, I'd propose that they offer in exchange for your zumo350LM and $175 they would send you a zumo390LM.

I doubt he'd be able to make heads or tails out of it.

Your experience with Mr. Pemble seems to differ from mine. I've fond him to be keenly aware of what's going on in his business at all levels.

They're Here!

I received an email message today from the BMW dealer in Austin notifying me that my navi V has arrived and my GS will arrive later in the week, so evidently, the V's are here!

I would imagine the Nav V would work on a 660 mount on a second bike?

That's hard to predict. It will depend on how BMW/Garmin wrote the software that supports the Nav-5 BMW Mount.

It's confirmed now that Garmin makes the units, the userinterface seems to look like the ones on zumo 350/390, with more addons for BMW.

I hope they have fixed the route- and trackhandling, which isn't good on 350/390.

Sounds interesting:

On select BMW motorcycles, riders can even view comprehensive real-time information1 on the MyMotorcycle Pages, such as tire pressure, gas levels, and when their next service is. The system also tells the rider how many times he shifted gears, used the front or rear brakes, the average throttle position, and more1. The page can be configured for multiple data field layouts and users can re-arrange the data in the order they would like to see. With the Last Ride Analyzer users can view a summary of the motorcycle data, trip conditions and stats of their last ride.

If this actually works well and one of the genius engineers on ADVrider figures out how to make sensores etc to make this work for my 05 gs this would be the first gps unit I would consider.

Slightly OT

So... have any of you come up with a way to mount the BMW "GPS prep" mount so that it sits above the cockpit crossbar instead of straddling it? For people above a certain height, it obscures part of the tach when in the stock position, and that is unacceptable to me.

Well, we'll soon know all there is to know.

My guess is that these units will have no Track Import capability now that BMW has branded the Montana (Adventure) for the DS/Adventure crowd.

First part of the review, unboxing, hope its ok to link to my blog?

I'll split it into several parts as I'm now charging the navigator and updating the map.
