Garmin zumo gps 550

The mp3 player automatically shuts off three quarters of the way through song list when selecting to the next song. Will play continuously but will not allow a manuel select once you are once three quarters of the way through the play list. It doesn't seem to matter if you have 20 songs or 120 songs loaded.

Hmmm, sounds like a firmware issue, current firmware is 4.20, to update use the garmin webupdater download from the garmin site. PS the issues you mention were with firmware 3.30

When I turn my Garmin 550 on it says loading maps, then goes to the select a local: It's frozen their on United States i push OK and nothing happens can not change the Locale it's frozen I tried...


Hi tkfranks331,

Press the power key and hold it if the screen of your Zumo is frozen. Keep holding the power key while pressing the key that has a plus symbol ("+") on it. This will reset your device and unfreeze the screen. You can also try calibrating the screen by pressing the power key for one full minute.

If this does not work, please follow these steps.

1. Update the internal disk software. Download and install WebUpdater on the computer. Please visit this link to download the WebUpdater.

2. Open WebUpdater on the computer.

3. Connect the Zumo 550 to the computer with its USB cable.

4. WebUpdater will automatically search for updates.

5. Follow the prompts to download any pertinent updates for the Zumo 550.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Downloading songs from an i-mac computer to a garmin zumo 660


I don't know for sure, but most likely the problem is that iTunes keeps songs in AAC format, and the Garmin wants them in MP3 format.

If that's the case, then what you need to do is this:

in iTunes, build a playlist of the songs you want to export.
Click on that playlist to show the list of songs
Click on the first song in the list, then hold SHIFT and click on the last song in the list so they're all highlighted.
Select the menu option "Make and MP3 copy". Apple keeps moving this option, so you may have to hunt for it, depending on the version of iTunes you have.

This should leave the nice-quality AAC versions alone, but also make MP3 copies of each song.
Copy the MP3 files to the SD card and try that in your Garmin.

Zumo 550 randomly shuts down, sometimes won't power up again.


Commonly happened when playing MP3's using an early version of the firmware. Install the Garmin updater and install the latest firmware and patches.

My original unit did the same thing.

Can't xfer whole cd albums to zumo 550 sd card, only song lists.


The CD songs are in *.wav format and have to be converted to MP3's to be usable. Extract the CD audio to MP3 files (WINAMP will do this and it's free or use your own tool) then copy the files to the SD card using windows explorer.

Music on an 8GB SDHC card not showing up on Zumo 450


More than likely your Zumo will not recognize cards larger than 2 gb. This is not a problem with your device. They are not designed to use larger cards.

Can't end Bluetooth phone call with Zumo 550


I have a motorola phone, and it's fine.
I have paired the phone to the zumo, and the phone is set to connect to the zumo automatically.
Check the phone is set up this way, and all should be well.
Hope this helps.

Looooooong time to load and start playing MP3s


Hmmm, the Zumo doesn't have a harddrive, it's flash memory. The best place to store mp3's is on a fast SD card, and don't get the biggest size and cram it full, I had like 100 mp3's on a card adding up to almost 450 mins of music, started up without a problem. Not as fast but pretty snappy!

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!!
