Re: WHICH GARMIN TO BUY
I read this thread and still have a couple of questions I hope someone can address. I will buy either the 390 or 590 but wonder if the 590 isn't overkill for me. I don't listen to Pandora, my RT (2013 model) sends me music via my iPhone in the front right storage area, and I don't need the weather or traffic service. Dimensionally, the height is only 1/10" higher on the 590 (3.8" vs. 3.7") so I shouldn't have a windshield clearance issue when the windshield is in the fully lowered position. And while the 390 screen is 4.3" vs. 5.0" on the 590, both are going to be larger than my 2820 StreetPilot. While the StreetPilot still works, it isn't supportable and some roads and businesses have changed since the last update. Also, the guy that does my work and has professionally integrated my Sena system to handle music, Nav commands, intercom, radar, etc. won't be able to do such work in another couple of months. So if I don't do this upgrade I know I'll be stuck trying to find some installer I can trust to install a new GPS once the StreetPilot gives up the ghost.
So, although price isn't an issue in this case, which makes better sense for my application?
