Garmin 595 vs 665

Postby Ron_Ces » Tue Jan 30, 2018 12:41 pm

Calling Phil to the white curtesy phone! What is the deal with the Zumo 595 and importing tracks? I have a 665LM, but it doesn't handle music files well and is hard to read in direct sunlight. Can the 595 import routes, say like the ones you create for our 450? :wtf

Ron,

Yes, the 595 can import routes like a 66X series using Garmins Trip Planner. It has a few issues that I’m not thrilled with though. It’s limited to 50 waypoints and then on it’s own it splits the route. Have you looked at one in the sun? Is it much better? No doubt the 595 is the latest, greatest, but pricey and there are some cons.

Regarding music on the 66X series, I hope your placing max of 20 mp3s per mp3 folder that you created on your SD card? That helps...

I dumped 550 + the album covers in one folder on the SD card. :bang

Ummm, NO.. surprised your 665 even boots up! I helped one guy who did the same thing, took forever till it would get going.


Create folders like: mp3-1, mp3-2, mp3-3. No more than 20 songs in each folder!
