    Exactly the same problem. Just bought the Zümo (500 Deluxe in my case). Just installed the mount. I'm getting electricity to the mount (I have tested the pins and they get current), but when mounted, the GPS doesn't charge. Any help?

    Zumo 550- works on the car mount. I have 10.2 V to ground on the car unit (3rd pin from left) and 9.85 V on the bike unit. I don't think this should make a difference. Any ideas?

    Was it working ever? If so, then the mount has likely failed. Make sure power is connected and no fuse is blown. Check the source with a voltmeter.

You'll have to select the europe map and deselect the usa map. Also you might have to change the locales. to do the first thing
tap wrench/tap map/tap about there you should see both maps, select the one you need and return to the wrench menu, select locales slect change all and walk through the menus (especialy the country!!!)

Remove the battery an leave it out for about 10 minutes, then put the battery back, should startup....Oh yeah, if you have an sd card installed remove it.

Zumo wont accept 12v charge from car or bike !

Did you drain the battery completly? Have you tried another battery yet? I've come across this issue once, seems the owner drained the battery completly. Leaving it hooked to the mains with the mains charger for almost a day did solve the issue. I'd try a new battery first.
