Re: 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.

HI I have Zumo 550 when I first switch it it comes up with can't maps press OK you press OK then starts to work but starts at 1am on the clock and in night time mode after awhile it goes to the right time...

If your zumo 400 or 500 series will not power on, or performs strangely after powering up, follow the steps (described on the Garmin website) below to perform a soft reset:
  1. Connect the zumo to a power source such as a computer or AC outlet
  2. Hold the zoom (+) and ON buttons at the same time for five seconds
  3. If this does not restore power, remove the battery for five seconds
  4. Place the battery back in the zumo
The zumo will now power on. Because the battery may deplete while the zumo is locked up, it is ideal to leave the zumo connected to power to allow it time to charge.
Once the battery has charged, follow the steps on the Garmin site to update the operating software in the zumo. (just copy this link to get there{8576ba20-e948-11dc-d6fc-000000000000} )

Good luck,

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.

Zumo not accepting a 12v charge


My friend had the same issue as you mention. Puts his Zumo 550 on his bike only to have it discharge in a few hours. He later found out the pins on his motorcycle cradle had corroded and therefore was not keeping the Zumo charged. His solution was to purchase a new motorcycle cradle at about $100.00 CDN.

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.

Garmin zumo 550 AC adapter inop

Take the unit back for warranty service. If you are using the original adabtor it should work. Take note that the Garmin GPS's are designed to work only with original Garmin accessories.

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!!

No power

I had exactly the same problem with a 3 month old Zumo 550. Removed battery, waited a few minutes and replaced. System now poers on OK. All data on-board was retained.
