    Brand new garmin 550. Turned on but went off before the menu came up. Now it won't turn on at all. We have charged it and tried turning it on while plugged in. Have tried it inside and outside.

    My 550 will not charge using the ac adapter to the suction cup car mount, the wall charger works fine. I have not hardwired the bike mount yet ,so I am unsure if that works. Any ideas?

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.

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.
