Question about Garmin zumo 550 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Touch screen is a little sluggish

In addition;
1. After punching in an address-two (2) duplicate results always show up.
2. My Zumo 550 is a year and half old. I just saw a brand new one at the local Harley dealer and it's operation was very crisp. Can mine be 'updated' to function like the new one?
3. The touch screen is not accurate. As an example; on the keyboard I will touch an 'E' and a 'M' will display.
Thanks,

Steve

Can I enter GPS coordinates into a gamin zumo 550


Turn on Zumo. Select WHERE TO. Depress ARROW DOWN beneath ROUTES icon. There, revealed, are 5 additional icons, one of which is COORDINATES. There are more different choices of ways to enter coordinates than you're likely to learn what they are in a lifetime.

Happy motorcycling. Keep the shiny side up.

My zumo 550 won't acquire satellites I tried update, no result Battery does not work


Hello,

The internal rechargeable battery in most electronic only has a life expectancy of about 3-4 years so it is common for then to die over time. It may be the same scenario with your GPS's antenna. You may be able to find a replacement battery for your GPS at a local battery outlet. But otherwise it may have to be sent in for warranty or repair.

Hope this helps!

How do I obtain more storage space on my Zumo 550


I don't believe that there is much else you can do but before i say that try using a 4GB sd card, think they can handle that. These units have a certain amount of memory reserved for system use and they will allow nothing else to use it. In the event that something does use it you get the "not enough memory to run program, Shutting down" error. Always fun

ZUMO CHARGING STATUS


I have had Zumo 550 for 2 years now, and it does exactly the same.
I think it is just the way the unit is, and is not a fault.

Garmin zumo 550 map update problem


  1. Make a backup of your Zumo by copying all the file to your computer.
  2. Using your PC and MapSource select all the maps then send them to a SD memory card need 2Gig or bigger card.
  3. Try to rename this file to gmapprom.img and replace the same named file in your zumo. (I haven't tried this personally, so if it fails, just replace this with your backup and all will be as it was.)
  4. If this fails, you can use the SD memory card in your zumo and it will use this map instead, but it will take longer to boot your zumo.

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!!

Zumo 550


my battery failed after less than a year of use. Garmin sent me a new battery and the unit is working fine now. The old battery would not provide ANY power to the unit.
