Question about Garmin GPS

1 Answer

I have a zumo 550 for a motorcycle the volume is set at 100% but i still can't hear the direction or the phone above 30mph. On the bike i also use Auotcom which has replaced too try to rectify the problem. Still no good. Both systems was fitted by the motorcycle shop. the volume isn't much better in a car. The mp3 is really good on bike and car.

Try a headphone amplifier, like the Boostaroo.

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

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.

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.

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.

Volume


I had a similar problem when I first connected my Cardo Scala Rider set to the helmet. First off, make sure that the volume on the Zumo is set to 100% for BOTH guidance and mp3 functions. Then click the upper control on the Cado Scala to maximize the volume of the headset. When you've accomplished those two electronic hurdles, adjust the location of the speakers in the helmet - if location of the speakers is not optimized nothing you do with the electronics will have much effect. I typically run the mp3 volume at 20% and the GPS at 50% with the headset volume at halfway. My Cardo Scala unit is a Teamset and I sometimes have problems hearing my rider scream that I'm going too fast. I haven't bothered yet to tell her to keep the microphone closer to her lips.

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,

DTL

Unit won't draw power from the bike battery


Ay I just fixed my Zumo 550, that would constantly go into battery power when hook up to my Motorcycle, found the enemy I was fighting was lack of proper ground (-).
