Garmin zumo 590LM/595LM Map Questions and Answers
Question: I currently have Garmin Montana 600 with UK discoverer 1:50,000 map installed. I use the device for motorcycle green laning. I was considering upgrading to garmin 590lm but cannot find confirmation anywhere (garmin or forums) if the discover maps are compatible with the 590. Gut feel says they should work as info says can use custom and topo maps. But I need confirmation the discoverer maps (or at least open street maps) will work on the 590 before I purchase. Any ideas?
Answer: I can confirm that Garmin GB Discoverer (Ordnance Survey) mapping series is NOT compatible with the Garmin zumo 590LM.
The mapping series that is compatible is the Garmin City Navigator (street-level detail) mapping series (as listed above).
In addition some Garmin TOPO maps are also compatible; however there aren't currently any UK topographic maps.
Question: I have a Garmin zumo 590lm and want to purchase topo map system to all me to use in on my off road motorcycle. Can the land ranger 1:50k map system that you sell be installed to the zumo 590. Garmin suggest it can, but the dreaded internet says not.
Answer: Garmin UK have confirmed that whilst the maps will load, they don't recommend using Garmin GB Discoverer map series with the zumo 590LM, as they won't display fully or correctly on the screen of your sat nav.
