When I installed the Garmin cradle for my Zumo 450 on my bike I installed the power cable directly to the Main line going into my headlight.I then ran the cable out of the back of the headlight and hid it behind my windshield and then, out through the handle bars up to the cradle, you can barely see it. Works great for me!


Hope this helped,

SOURCE: my zumo won't power on

This sometimes happens if the cradle is owered while you connect the zumo...i guess it hits some wrong contacts first and goes bonkers. I'd advise th zumo users to pack a small allen screw bit to unscrew the battery, just in case it freezes or blacks out again....better safe than lost in the middle of nowhere!

Use the allen wrench to remove the battery. Let stand for 5 minutes and replace the battery. It should start fine. Mine has done this 3 times since I purchased it.

Hi,

I will suggest you reset your GPS, to reset your gps, follow this steps, turn off your device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen, and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press Yes to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.
Once the GPS unit is reset, remember to place the device outside where there is a clear unobstructed view of the sky for 15 to 30 minutes in order for it to requires fix to GPS satellites. with this, the problem should be rectify.

Moisture has probably gotten inside the motorcylce cradle through the connector pins. if you take it apart, there is a very small ribbon cable that attaches from the pins to the cicuit board. if moisture gets on the end of the ribbon cable it can short out the small power tracers on the cable and cuircuit board. this happened to me. i had to buy a new cradle. 85.00

Speaker doesn't work when using Garmin on my motorcycle but it works in my truck. got any ideas?


there is a speaker on the cradle for the car and none on the bike cradle probably due to the exposure to the elements when on the bike and i think the Zumo must be powered from the bike for the speaker on the Zumo to work when riding.

GPS is not getting power on the motorcyclen mount.


If you're sure the power cord is getting power, then the mount has likely failed. Mine has failed 3 times. Replacing the mount will fix the problem as it did on mine. If the unit is less than 1 year from purchase, Garmin will warranty replace it for free. If not, it'll cost you about $85 plus shipping to put a new one on.
