Question about Garmin zumo 550 GPS Receiver
I have fitted the unit, wired it up to the battery on the bike and it worked perfectly. Now it will only work on the internal battery. when I mount it on the bike it won't switch to external power, it just runs on the internal battery. I have to charge it up on the mains and if it's over four hours ..........it goes off because the battery has expired. I have cleaned the contacts and checked the fuse and all is ok. Help!??
Ay I just fixed my Zumo 550, that would constantly go into battery power when hook up to my Motorcycle, found the enemy I was fighting was lack of proper ground (-).

On the lower side of the zumo there are copperm coloured contact points which have to fit to uprising points of the holder on the motorcycle/car. These contact points are very vulnrable to pollution. Clean them dry and use a tiny bit of contact spray.
My first zumo was replaced under warranty because of damage to the contact points due to a leaking battery
