    Default Garmin Zumo 595 firmware on a Zumo 590?

    New to the forum. Stumbled across because there was apparently a post on this forum about using Zumo 595 firmware on a Zumo 590 (hardware wise, they seem to be near identical units).

    I was told the post was lost in a server crash here and was not on the backups when it was restored.

    Does anyone have any info/instructions on this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, the 595 firmware works in the Zumo 590. Unfortunately the original post was disapeared.
    In general the limitation was the impossibility to view in vertical mode and the not recognition as Zumo 595 in the Garmin Basecamp when is connected, but the connection works.
    Regards

    Just tried this and it appears to work. Will do a road test later today. I believe it will have all the short comings as the old procedure but I don't remember what they are.

    Did a road test and the gps seemed to work fine. Found gas stops ahead and bluetooth works . Also to transfer data from basecamp and mapsource do the following.
    bring up the Volume screen and press on the upper right corner on the screem for about 10 sec.
    Select Configuration and Settings
    Select MTP Settings
    Select either of the Mass Storage settings.

    you will now see the zumo in either mapsource or basecamp.
