Garmin has updated its popular Motorcycle series to make it more than just another GPS navigator. zūmo 390 features Bluetooth wireless technology that allows riders to simply connect their zūmo with their mobile phone or a Bluetooth-enabled headset or helmet (sold separately) to make and receive calls on the go. Motorcyclists are then free to talk on their phones without having to remove their gloves or helmet. Riders can also call Points of Interest (POI’s) through the zūmo Bluetooth interface which is perfect for a last-minute change of plans or a quick pit stop for food and fuel. Zūmo 390 can transmit voice guided navigation to motorcyclists’ compatible headsets or helmets (sold separately) and by hearing street names and navigation commands, riders can keep their focus on the road and truly enjoy the ride.
zūmo 390 is the first in the motorcycle series from Garmin to be compatible with the NEW integrated Tyre Pressure Monitor Sensor3 (TPMS) feature. By adding a sensor to each tyre, riders can easily monitor the pressure on the zūmo display. The system works with up to 4 tyres in any configuration, where one TPMS sensor is required for each tyre. With the Service History Log, cruising enthusiasts can record the date, mileage and type of maintenance performed on their motorcycles, whether its tyre mileage, tyre changes, tyre pressure, chain cleanings, oil changes, new spark plugs – whatever you can think of, zūmo will keep a record of it. THe new zumo is said to retail at a RRP of R5799.
