Question about Garmin zumo 550 GPS Receiver
Tried new Battery . Recharging,Motorcycle mount, and car mount. still no power
I had same problem. It seems like battery is dead. The unit just died and need to take battery out to reset. Finally, I figure it out that -- it's because the my Zumo550 is running out of memory!
I had a very low free memory available, then after it logs your trip for a while and used up all those free memory - it freeze...
Solutions >>> connect to your computer via usb cable. Try to free up some memory...

I suspect that the original power cable for motorcycle assembly is resistive. I have made a second cable (non-resistive) and the equipment turned off as soon as I connect it.
The internal battery is 4.2 V.

I charged it for about an hour on the bus connector (wall outlet did not appear to generate any charge). I then opened up the back and removed the battery. Put the battery back in; see if it starts. If so, turn off immiediately and continue to charge it to a full charge (at least 12 hours).
I found other users who experienced the same problem when their battery drained down to a very low level. The unit goes zombie and needs both a charge AND full reset (battery removal) before it can be resurrected.
