Re: Speaker phone

While the unit is plugged into the computer, it cannot be used as a speaker phone. If you have a cellphone connected via Bluetooth, it will transfer the call to the C550, but you will not hear the other party and vice versa. The unit cannot be manipulated until it is disconnected from the computer.

How can I charge my Tomtom GPS 550 at home using a USB to my PC ? Or can it be charged only in the Car using the Car Charger ? How long should it take to fully charge using USB & also on Car Charger ?...

i dont believe it can chagre via usb as usb only provides up to 5v of power you can buy from walmart a cheap ac to car adapter (makes your ac outlet a cig lighter adapter) and power it that way.

sounds like the Audio patch cord, i had around 5 of them that do that ...sometimes i hear the music thru one speaker, cracking noise sometimes it works when the wire is twisted, but i would try a new patch cord patch cord worked fine on some stereo units others break up

Can I charge my Magellan roadmate with USB cable connected to the computer?

It depends on the Roadmate that you have. :
- If your Roadmate has a separate plug-in port for charging your unit IN ADDITION TO a USB port, then no, your Roadmate cannot be charged using your computer via the USB cable.
- If your Roadmate only has a USB port available for charging your unit, then yes, you can charge it via your computer via USB.
However, please note, according to Magellan, charging your unit using your PC via USB can take up to 12 hours to charge vs. 4-6 hours when using the vehicle power adapter.
FYI: This is mainly due to USB constraints on pretty much all electronic devices. USB cannot carry the same amount of power to a device. It uses what is commonly known as a 'trickle' charge to recharge a device. It carries much less current than a full-blown charger (like an AC power adapter).

Garmin Zumo 550 won't come back on after a trip of about an hour.

There's a small screw on the back that needs a torxs screwdriver.

Crackling noise then no audio at all while on motorcycle

In my opinion I suspect either a bad internal connection to the built in speaker or a faulty Bluetooth connection. Does the problem occur on both the helmet and speaker? If so, then the unit has likley had a circuit malfunction. If the helmet works fine but not the speaker, then I'd guess a broken or damaged speaker and/or speaker wire. Crackling noise is typical for broken wires or lose connections. Any decent TV repair place would be able to sort through it about 10 mintues before you have to return to for factory repair.
