Garmin zumo 550 switching on and off

8 month old unit started up and then powered off. It continued for hours.
On reading some tips here I removed the battery for some minutes. On re inserting the battery, the unit worked correctly.

Keep your finger in the right bottom corner when you start up the unit. it will show a warning if you want to reset! push on "YES". it will reboot the unit. (please note that you have to remove your little memory card).

Hope it works... it did mine! SU

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 https://buy.garmin.com/support/searchSupport/case.faces?caseId={8576ba20-e948-11dc-d6fc-000000000000} )

Good luck,
Michael

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.

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.

I cannot get audio at all for my garmin zumo 550. all it says onscrean is to connect zumo to holder which i have done or to connect to bluetooth headset.i think i may have a problem with my power lead but...


The 550 relies on the car base for audio as it has no speaker. If the base is not powered up it will not amplify the sound out of the GPS unit, Check the in-line fuse on the power cord, it is usually located in the tip of the cigarette lighter adapter. twist off the tip and this should expose a fuse.
HAve you tried connecting to it with a bluetooth headset, this should work regardless of whether or not it is on the base.

Hope this is of some help.

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.

Make sure that the bike's electrical connection to the GPS unit is actualy not having power once you turn the key off in the bike. This GPS turns on with external power. It is inherent in to its design.

In the case were you cannot have the bike's power source to the GPS turn off with the key, see if you can wire a small in-line switch in series with the GPS unit so that you have an external power switch. This should be easy to do.

The models I have used from Garmin have their own power switch. You should be able to use its power switch to turn it off.

GARMIN ZUMO GPS 550- how to i connect power source to my Harley mc and speakers?


Red lead to the plus and black to the minus of the battery, connecting to the speakers youl'll nead something with an aux input, or a small amplifier, the output signal of the Zumo is just enough to power a head set!

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.

GARMIN c550 will not turn on


There is an ISSUE with the DEAD ZUMO, however some of the are solved, and some need to be shipped back.
There are a couple of options.
1) remove the battery, keep power button pressed for a few minutes. install battery, try.
2) fully recharge the battery with the wall charger, try
3) With a fully charged battery, press and hold the + button and press the power button(hard reset).
4) hold thumb firmly on top left of touch screen and hold power button till it switches on(hard reset).
5) Try a different battery (fully charged)
6) Ship it to Garmin
