Sounds like the Audio patch cord, i had around 5 of them that do that ...sometimes i hear the music thru one speaker, cracking noise sometimes it works when the wire is twisted, but i would try a new patch cord first.....my patch cord worked fine on some stereo units others break up

    I tried other patch cords and as I said tried an Ipod useing the patch cord on the bike it's not the patch cord going into the aux input of the radio.

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

Wiring To an 08 Ultra Classic


If you are mounting the unit to the bars or fairing, I would recommend using a power lead which is available in the fairing, rather than the AUX accessory switch.  The AUX switch sends power to a connector under the seat, in front of the battery.  You would need to run new wires up under the fuel tank, along the neck and into the fairing to connector your Zumo to the AUX.  Instead, there is a 12+ V switched ignition power lead which is not used on U.S. touring bikes and would be perfect for connecting your Zumo.  Pull the fairing off the bike (7 screws, TORX T-27) and look at the headlight harness, which is 3 wires, black, white, yellow.  Attached to this harness will be 2 wires, a black and an orange w/ white stripe.  The orange will have a red silicone cap over it to prevent it from shorting out in the fairing.  Cut the zip-ties which connect these 2 wires to the headlight harness and then hook it up to your Zumo, black is negative, Orange positive.

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!

Installing XM on my Motorcycle


Pick yourself up a Garmin Zumo 550, it has a navigator, MP3 player, photo viewer, and XM (Radio, Traffic, & Weather) and best of all the music gets interupted when it's time to give you directions.

Power


The best place is on the battery connectors, the battery works like a capacitor and whining sound from the dynamo/generator/voltage regulator is usually least close to the battery connectors. Dont forget to fuse it with the proper fuse, you won't be the first one to have a flaming bike if the wiring messes up!

No power


I had exactly the same problem with a 3 month old Zumo 550. Removed battery, waited a few minutes and replaced. System now poers on OK. All data on-board was retained.

Zumo 550


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.
