Merry Xmas to me...

Well, the box actually arrived a few weeks ago and yes, it's a farkle and I've only just got around to blogging about it as the farkling process is more or less complete...

A few motorcycling mates worked out what it was when I posted the above pic on Facebook.  So here's what's in the box.

Another box!
Yep, after putting up with a few issues with my old Zumo it was time for a new one...

Well, almost ready to use...

I'd been humming and harring for months on whether to get the 396 or the more expensive 595.  There's quite a difference in price but luckily it's not just for the 0.5" larger screen.

Unlike the 396, it also came with a car mount and of course there's a few more features on board.  Maybe I'll post up about them once I work out how to drive everything properly.  But first, I'd better get the thing installed eh...

Old vs new


  1. Nice. I'm envious. An Inreach is on the wishlist. lol
