Are you firing up the Zumo before you start the bike? I did this and it appeared to continue on battery power when the bike was started - hence, put it in the cradle and it should start up on bike power.

Alternatively, it could be the cradle - I'm on my third in less than a year!

Quite possibly the pins that provides power to your Zumo through the mount have corroded after getting wet when the Zumo has been removed. Two ways to prevent this in future, remove the power supply to the mount by unplugging the lead either at the mount or at the battery (or put a switch in) or/and use a product to repel water from the pins on the mount. I remove the mount completely from the bike when not in use which has solved the verdigris problems I was getting.

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.

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

Hi, Dmercier for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

I press the power button, the screen appears, 2 secondes later, it shuts down.


If the battery is depleted and it's not in a powered mount, that will happen. Recharge the unit via the USB cable if necessary and make sure the battery is charged at least 4 hours before re-attempting.

Zumo Wull not charge form bike mount


Experience the same problem with my Zumo 550. Told by service advisor @ Radio World that this is a common problem. Unit needs to be charged on the DC charger occasionally. The motorcycle mount and car mounts, I was told, does not charge the battery on these units, but maintains a charged battery.

You mean helmet speakers? If you use the bike mount it should work, the car mount is a line out(not amplified so the sound is very poor) I had a wired helmet set, worked okay below 50 KMh
