I see the 595 mentioned pretty frequently, but the 396 looks significantly cheaper for only 1/2" smaller screen. Does anyone own one? What are your thoughts on it?
I stand corrected, it looks like they were both announced in early 2018. Garmin shipped first in US, TomTom was delayed for US sale. The Garmin is $320 on Amazon right now (TomTom is $370). I would buy a Garmin just for BaseCamp but they have made it pretty clear that they are abandoning BaseCamp and the Explore website doesn't work. I don't want to buy something that becomes crippled in 6 months.The LMT 396-S is the newest in the Zumo family. I think it is only a year old or so. The 395 has been out for a long time, but it does not have WiFi.
I don't know about easy, but you can either connect it to the aux power under the left pocket or run power from somewhere else. I run the wires down the handle bars and zip tie them so they don't flop around. I also make sure there is plenty of slack to allow the handle bars to turn without binding the wiring.Is there an easy way to run the power cabling and connect to the bike's power?
