that helps keep motorcyclists on track, on and off the road. Mounted on the
handlebars or in the car (motorcycle and car mounts included), the zūmo
390LM’s design offers the flexibility riders want.

“In addition to features like the Service History Log, lane assist with
junction view and TracBack®, the zūmo 390LM adds improved Bluetooth®
functionality, new Curvy Roads feature and motorcyclists can now monitor their
tire pressure in real-time with the new Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor (sold
separately),” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “It’s
light-weight and easy to mount, includes lifetime map updates¹, and can handle
the toughest weather conditions².”

With the zūmo 390LM, Garmin has updated its popular Motorcycle series to make
it more than just another GPS navigator. zūmo 390LM features Bluetooth
wireless technology that allows riders to simply connect their zūmo with their
mobile phone and a Bluetooth-enabled headset or helmet (sold separately) to
make and receive calls on the go. With it, motorcyclists are free to talk on
their phones without having to remove their gloves or helmet. Riders can also
call points of interest through the zūmo Bluetooth interface, perfect for a
last-minute change of plans or a quick pit stop for food and fuel. zūmo 390LM
can transmit voice-guided navigation to motorcyclists’ compatible headsets or
helmets (sold separately). Hearing street names and navigation commands lets
riders keep their focus on the road and truly enjoy the ride. To see the zūmo
390LM in action, go to www.garmin.com/zumo.

zūmo 390LM is the first in the motorcycle series from Garmin to be compatible
with the NEW integratedTire Pressure Monitor Sensor^3 (TPMS). Add a sensor
for each tire and easily monitor the pressure using the zūmo display. The
system works with up to 4 tires in any configuration. One TPMS sensor is
required for each tire. Also, the Service History Log lets cruising
enthusiasts record the date, mileage and type of maintenance performed on
their motorcycles. Tire mileage, tire changes, tire pressure, chain cleanings,
oil changes, new spark plugs – almost anything you can think of, zūmo will
keep a record of it.

Whether riding during a bright summer day or a moonless fall night, the zūmo
390LM has motorcycle-friendly features any rider will appreciate.With its new
Curvy Roads feature, zūmo 390LM will allow riders to select and navigate
routes on winding roads to their destination—making each new trip a memorable
experience. Its large touchscreen color display is housed in a case that
resists fuel sprays and UV rays. The zūmo 390LM puts all the information you
need in an easy-to-read format as you travel down the road and features a
glove-friendly intuitive interface that makes entering information as easy as
shifting gears. The zūmo 390LM speaks street names and will deliver
turn-by-turn, voice prompted directions, such as “turn right on Route 66,” via
the built-in speaker headphone jack or through a compatible Bluetooth helmet
or headset.

BaseCamp™ compatible, the zūmo 390LM makes it easy for motorcyclists to plan
their next ride. BaseCamp, a free software program from Garmin, allows users
to create routes and waypoints from their computer and transfer them to the
zūmo. After an open road or off the beaten path adventure, send the ride to
BaseCamp to share the adventure with friends and relive the experience.

The zūmo 390LM offers you the convenience of lifetime map updates (North
American and European version available), which provides up-to-date mapping
and current information about businesses like restaurants, ATMs, hospitals and
more. With the easy-to-use premium navigation search bar, zūmo returns results
for points of interest (POIs) as they are typed providing a faster, more
intuitive experience. There’s also a speed limit indicator, and Exit Services
that display gas stations, food and lodging, ATMs and rest areas for upcoming
exits. With the TracBack feature, riders can really let their minds be free
and ride wherever the road takes them, as it is now as easy as a button push
to navigate along that same route back to where the adventure started. zūmo
390LM also let’s riders, following a planned route, be in complete control as
they can now skip waypoints with a couple taps of the screen.

No more guessing which lane motorcyclists need to be in to make an upcoming
turn. Lane assist with junction view guides riders to the correct lane for an
approaching turn or exit, making unfamiliar intersections and exits easy to
navigate and gives peace of mind. It realistically displays road signs and
junctions on the route along with arrows that indicate the proper lane for
navigation.

The new zūmo 390LM is available immediately and will have a suggested retail
price of $699.99. The zūmo 390LM will be available in North American and
European versions. The zūmo 390LM is the latest solution from Garmin’s
consumer automotive segment, the leading worldwide provider of portable
navigation devices for automobiles and motorcycles. From turn-by-turn
navigation and fast and accurate search capability to traffic avoidance and
lane guidance, Garmin’s user-friendly PND solutions have innovative features
that provide time- and fuel-saving benefits to meet the demands of everyday
driving.For more information about Garmin’s other Motorcycle products and
