    The hardwire mount for the 590 is $46.

    does a 590 fit in a 660 stand? Curious if they work that much better. I sold my 2012 with a 665 I bought from Best Buy that had XM and the 2014 RT Ltd only has the 660. Do the 590s come with XM radio?

    No and No. 590 mount is different from 660 mount. 590 has an MP3 player in it and you can load a mini-SD card with music on it and install in GPS to play as you ride.
    Artillery lends dignity to what would
    otherwise be a vulgar brawl.

    As Jay stated, the 590 will not fit in a 660 mount, nor does it come with XM radio.

    I have a 660 on my BMW and the 590 has a larger screen, and it seems brighter/sharper than my 660.
    The 660 has most of the same features as a 590, but the 590 is significantly faster to boot up, and giving
    instructions while riding. Sometimes I'm already past the turn when the 660 finally tells me to turn....
    That's what a newer chip will do. The 660 is long in the tooth and no longer made.

    BTW, the 665 came with XM, the 660 not..

    One last thing, the 590 has a "curvy" road function that the 660 lacks also.

    No, the Garmin Zumo 590LM Model: 010-01232-01 is not compatible with XM satellite radio.

    To get traffic and weather you need to connect the unit to a smartphone and run the Garmin Smartphone Link app (search for it for more info). Traffic and weather services are an additional 1-time subscription charge.

    You can use your zumo 590 with your cell phone, headset, and/or helmet by pairing them. So if you have the Sirius XM app on your phone I wonder if that would play through the Garmin 590? Will check it out and let you know.

    I have my Iphone connected through Bluetooth to the Garmin. I also have the Sirius XM app on my phone. When I had the Garmin on and opened the app to Sirius XM it showed the music playing through the GPS.

    good to hear, never thought of that! currently have a 4th gen ipod touch for jams and the Sirius app only installs on later OS... but would love to get the Sirius through the sound system although with Tmobile I imagine itll be spotty at best...Which Garmin do you use?

    I used the GARMIN 590 to run SiriusXM through the GPS from my IPhone.
