Question about Garmin zumo 550 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Garmin 550t. When i have my zumo on my motorcycle mount it seems not to take power from the bike & then after a while it tells me "low battery", it is wired directly to the bike battery so it should charge from there but doesn't . On the zumo screen a small battery appears in the top right corner & shows only 1 greencell.

Moisture has probably gotten inside the motorcylce cradle through the connector pins. if you take it apart, there is a very small ribbon cable that attaches from the pins to the cicuit board. if moisture gets on the end of the ribbon cable it can short out the small power tracers on the cable and cuircuit board. this happened to me. i had to buy a new cradle. 85.00

    There is a rubber seal on the motorcycle mount that will sometimes move and cover the pads on the mount connector that provide the charging power. Push the rubber back with your fingernail or some soft object, and try it again. This fixed a similar problem on my motorcycle cradle.

    Speaker doesn't work when using Garmin on my motorcycle but it works in my truck. got any ideas?


    there is a speaker on the cradle for the car and none on the bike cradle probably due to the exposure to the elements when on the bike and i think the Zumo must be powered from the bike for the speaker on the Zumo to work when riding.

    GPS is not getting power on the motorcyclen mount.


    If you're sure the power cord is getting power, then the mount has likely failed. Mine has failed 3 times. Replacing the mount will fix the problem as it did on mine. If the unit is less than 1 year from purchase, Garmin will warranty replace it for free. If not, it'll cost you about $85 plus shipping to put a new one on.

    Zumo not accepting a 12v charge


    Mike,

    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.

    My garmin zumo will not turn on.


    Have you also held the power on button for a couple of minutes, with the battery installed, and without the battery installed. There is an issue with the garmin dying, some cases a new battery helps, other cases, just leave the battery to charge for several hours, worst case is that you have to ship it to Garmin. I had a couple of Dead Zumo, however, removing the battery for several minutes, putting it back and clipping the zumo in the car holder did the trick for me. I also have a spare battery and allen wrench, just in case...

    Power supply to garmin zumo 450


    When I installed the Garmin cradle for my Zumo 450 on my bike I installed the power cable directly to the Main line going into my headlight.I then ran the cable out of the back of the headlight and hid it behind my windshield and then, out through the handle bars up to the cradle, you can barely see it. Works great for me!


    Hope this helped,
