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.

    I have included a link to the garmin website, it will show you what you should have received with the unit. The list shows 2 power cables.

    Have a look at the list and you can determine if you are missing something.

Hello,

The microphone input from the Zumo 665 motorcycle mounting cradle is the smaller 2.5mm jack.
Be sure to use this one as some microphone jacks will require a 3.5mm to 2.5mm adapter.
The audio output is the 3.5mm jack.
Be sure not to confuse the two.
It may be necessary to have a custom 5 or 7 pin DIN adapter made to connect between the GW audio system and the Zumo.
It would be best to consult with your local Honda GoldWing dealer for more information on interfacing the GW audio system.

Crackling noise then no audio at all while on motorcycle


In my opinion I suspect either a bad internal connection to the built in speaker or a faulty Bluetooth connection. Does the problem occur on both the helmet and speaker? If so, then the unit has likley had a circuit malfunction. If the helmet works fine but not the speaker, then I'd guess a broken or damaged speaker and/or speaker wire. Crackling noise is typical for broken wires or lose connections. Any decent TV repair place would be able to sort through it about 10 mintues before you have to return to for factory repair.

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!!
