First launched in 2006, Garmin’s zūmo lineup consists of products developed specifically for motorcyclists. And while the zūmo range already consists of more than a dozen offerings, the American brand has now unveiled its latest moto-focused ware with the all-new Garmin zūmo XT.

The compact device features a 5.5” glove-compatible touchscreen TFT display that can easily be read in direct sunlight. The XT also offers the ability to record routes, view Birdseye satellite imagery, utilize preloaded on and off-road (topographical) maps, a TripAdvisor and local attractions and notable sites feature — including a network of public campgrounds – music streaming, phone calls, and GPS directions with live traffic and weather updates. Garmin’s new motorcycle GPS unit also includes an algorithm that can physically detect crashes, and then automatically alert a preprogrammed contact with your location so emergency services can be summoned. Sporting a battery that affords up to six-hours of use, the zūmo XT is as rugged as it is high-tech, with the lightweight (9.2oz) moto gadget boasting an IPX7 water rating and a MIL-STD-810 drop rating.
