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.

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...


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

Poor sound quality via Bluetooth mic after switch to iPhone 3GS


Unfortunately, solution is NOT free. Until Apple decides to take good look into this issue, you are left to buying another BT headset model.

I got lucky first time around, bought new Plantronics (not Playtronics...) Voyager 520 (I do love Plantronics 3xx design, this is the next best thing). It did cost almost twice as much as my previous headsets (about 45 EUR), but it's still on the cheap "side" and (to my experience) also the best value.
Hope new headset also lasts almost whole week before needing recharge, like my "old ones". :)

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.

Garmin zumo 550 map update problem


  1. Make a backup of your Zumo by copying all the file to your computer.
  2. Using your PC and MapSource select all the maps then send them to a SD memory card need 2Gig or bigger card.
  3. Try to rename this file to gmapprom.img and replace the same named file in your zumo. (I haven't tried this personally, so if it fails, just replace this with your backup and all will be as it was.)
  4. If this fails, you can use the SD memory card in your zumo and it will use this map instead, but it will take longer to boot your zumo.

Zumo 400


You mean helmet speakers? If you use the bike mount it should work, the car mount is a line out(not amplified so the sound is very poor) I had a wired helmet set, worked okay below 50 KMh

there is an extra audio menu under the wrench symbol, this one differs from the front panel set both of these to 100%, should be better!

Have you tried someone elses car cradle? There is a small amp in the car cradle which is probably fried, Is it under warranty? If so ship it back, if not, find another zumo user to test if it's the cradle or not, then still try Garmin, if the response is 'no warranty', shop for a cradle on ebay..seen them NEW for less than $ 50

How do you load maps? and are these Garmin maps. I try to keep the Zumo original and use an SD card for extra maps. Did you try this yet? And if you are using SD cards, try a different brand/quality. I had some lockups with crappy budget cards. Kingston, Sandisk and some other A brands work fine!
