Re: Zumo 550

My Zumo would not start after a normal shutdown. I removed the battery and left it for a few minutes, reconnected battery and it started OK. I guess it locked up for some unknown reason.

    When I turn my Garmin 550 on it says loading maps, then goes to the select a local: It's frozen their on United States i push OK and nothing happens can not change the Locale it's frozen I tried...

    Hi tkfranks331,

    Press the power key and hold it if the screen of your Zumo is frozen. Keep holding the power key while pressing the key that has a plus symbol ("+") on it. This will reset your device and unfreeze the screen. You can also try calibrating the screen by pressing the power key for one full minute.

    If this does not work, please follow these steps.

    1. Update the internal disk software. Download and install WebUpdater on the computer. Please visit this link to download the WebUpdater.

    2. Open WebUpdater on the computer.

    3. Connect the Zumo 550 to the computer with its USB cable.

    4. WebUpdater will automatically search for updates.

    5. Follow the prompts to download any pertinent updates for the Zumo 550.

    Hope it helps.

    Thank you for using FixYa.

    HI I have Zumo 550 when I first switch it it comes up with can't maps press OK you press OK then starts to work but starts at 1am on the clock and in night time mode after awhile it goes to the right time...

    If your zumo 400 or 500 series will not power on, or performs strangely after powering up, follow the steps (described on the Garmin website) below to perform a soft reset:
    1. Connect the zumo to a power source such as a computer or AC outlet
    2. Hold the zoom (+) and ON buttons at the same time for five seconds
    3. If this does not restore power, remove the battery for five seconds
    4. Place the battery back in the zumo
    The zumo will now power on. Because the battery may deplete while the zumo is locked up, it is ideal to leave the zumo connected to power to allow it time to charge.
    Once the battery has charged, follow the steps on the Garmin site to update the operating software in the zumo. (just copy this link to get there{8576ba20-e948-11dc-d6fc-000000000000} )

    Good luck,

    I cannot get audio at all for my garmin zumo 550. all it says onscrean is to connect zumo to holder which i have done or to connect to bluetooth headset.i think i may have a problem with my power lead but...

    The 550 relies on the car base for audio as it has no speaker. If the base is not powered up it will not amplify the sound out of the GPS unit, Check the in-line fuse on the power cord, it is usually located in the tip of the cigarette lighter adapter. twist off the tip and this should expose a fuse.
    HAve you tried connecting to it with a bluetooth headset, this should work regardless of whether or not it is on the base.

    Hope this is of some help.

    Connection problem between a nokia n95 8gb and zumo 550

    I have recently purchased a Zumo 550 and successfully copied across selected phone book entries from a Nokia N95 without the need to use any additional apps:-

    1) Assuming the N95 and Zumo are paired via BlueTooth
    2) In N95 Contacts - use 'Mark' / 'Mark All' as necessary to select the contact entries you wish to transfer to the Zumo 550
    3) In N95 Contacts - select 'Options' then 'Send Business Card' then 'Via Bluetooth'
    4) Select the Zumo 550 device from the list of paired Bluetooth devices
    5) Contact data is transferred from N95 phonebook to Zumo 550 phonebook

    Interestingly, Garmin don't seem to list the Nokia N95 as being a supported device on their website, but the above process worked for me!!

    How do you load maps? and are these Garmin maps. I try to keep the Zumo original and use an SD card for extra maps. Did you try this yet? And if you are using SD cards, try a different brand/quality. I had some lockups with crappy budget cards. Kingston, Sandisk and some other A brands work fine!
