    Maybe I’m not searching hard enough for this which I’m sure has been asked before.

    I have a Zumo 595 right now and I have to say I would just rather use my phone most of the time. Making routes in base camp is more trouble than it’s worth and trying to do it on the actual unit sucks just as hard. Not impressed at all for the price.

    How does this compare to the BMW Navigator for people that have used both?

    If you don't like the 595, you won't like a Navigator. The primary functions and "logic" are the same. The Nav V and VI have some BMW-only features (Wonderwheel control, sensor displays, etc.), but I think they may lack a few Zumo features (some apps and audio options, selectable warnings like lower speeds ahead?).
