    The montana isnt street biased, opposite. The Zumos are generally the more street biased, but bigbore has obviously done a bit with the new one

    Nope, just letting people know.
    Especially at night time.
    Do they have a night screen?

    Don't confuse the older Zumo 595 and lesser with the new XT. Far superior screen and map set for the bush. Really no comparison.
    The new Montana 750(i think) will be a very nice unit, same toppo maps as the new Zumo XT and new screen with inReach features.

    yeah I did see them, the Zumo Lock is on my radar, I was just going to check it a bit more that it helps to ensure the Zumo is held in the cradle a bit more and not just lock the slide button

    Hahah I was thinking of one of them too, but I’d prefer to sort a good lock, eating a pie, vanilla slice and a caramel latte can take a while

    do you have the Zumo lock ?, does it stop the top of the XT tilting out or does it just lock the cradle button ?

    Edit:
    Looks like it just locks button

    yes they are very good, not that I can find any examples of them coming out of the cradle but I like how that lock wraps around front so it cant tilt out of cradle

    How does the red line look on the new model.

    Was way too thin on the old Zumo and was hard to see let alone follow on the fly. Could not make it any thicker either

    Is it easier to see on the new models?
