Question about Garmin GXM 30 Antenna

1 Answer

Garmin GXM30 stopped working. what is the usual reason for this? Driving along in the morning, the sound started to sound'' fuzzy'', I went to try a different channel and immediatly lost all XM radio in my Garmin Zumo 550. I tried it in the car cradle still no XM or even recogniton that the antenna is hooked up. The lack of the Zumo seeing the antenna leaves me to surmise the antena died, and that it was not probably the wire connecting it to the Zumo but an electronic component inside the antena. It has in effect ceased to send any signal. Everything else about the Zumo continues to function perfectly.

There is very little to those pucks. If you have tried it in two devices then the electronics have gone bad. Blame a solar flare or something but it will need to be replaced

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Garmin Zumo wired headset

I bought a wired motorcycle headset, which does works okay (below 50 mph) www.imc-motorcom.com, didn't like the wire so I switched to a BT helmet kit, manufactured by interphone, works like a charm.

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!

SOURCE: garmin zumo switch on problem

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.

MY GARMIN STREETPILOT C310 WORKED THIS MORNING, BUT NOW WILL NOT SWITCH ON?


It is also 7+ years old. in technology years that is like 140 years old. retire it and get a Nuvi.

Remember that time you went to start your car and it worked yesterday but today it would not start... bad stuff happens.

If you are holding out hope, try leaving it plugged into the car or outlet
try holding the power button for a long time (30 sec)
try plugging it into a computer and see if anything happens.

I am sorry to say you are losing the transmission, these symptoms are of an automatic on the way out. Take it to any Aamco transmission (and others like them) and they will do a preliminary diagnostic for free in most cases so you have some idea as to cost. If you do need a trans rebuild it will run about $2000.00.

from the sounds of it it either had a voltage drop to the chassis or a ground connection fault, my guess is a the ground to chassis went bad, reason is grounds usually cause multiple systems failures, its time consuming to check the all , but first check all fuses

The cranking will usually sound different after the timing chain has slipped. Does it spit or backfire when you crank it? I suggest you rule out some easier things before going after the timing chain. If you are getting spark and fuel, then maybe I would take a peek at the timing chain to see if it has skipped on the sprocket.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Try resetting your unit with the reset button on the bottom. If this doesn't work, slide the power button all the way to the left and hold it for 8 seconds.

Stereo stopped working along with speedometer


It's probably not a fuse. It sounds like your vehicle speed sensor went bad in the transmission. The reason your radio stopped working was because your radio is probably equipped with speed sensitive volume and it requires a speed signal to work.

KVT-719 NAV button not highlighted unable to select


Well I see no help here, but emailed kenwwod and they told me:

The Garmin menu is not accessible from the main source select screen, only thru the V.Select which you have already discovered.

The reason why "NAV" is displayed as an audio source is if you were to add a GMX30 XM Radio/NavTraffic antenna, you would be able to access XM radio (subscription required). So unless you have the GXM30, you will never use that source key.
