Hello
Windows-7 won't recogonise most of the external devices like XP do. I've updated my system with Windos-7, and felt so many problems, and reverted back to XP itself. When I tried with Windows-7 CD with XP, and made a compactablilty check, which says that, all the external components, including USB stic, must be pluged in when you install Windows-7. In fact I don't feel smooth Win-7 as WinXP.
Your problem can't be rectifed unitl you revert back to XP again. Most of the older softwares are not compactable with this operating system as I feels.
Try your Gramin with an other computer running on XP SP3. OK.

    If you reload Win-7; while your Gramin Sumo is connected, it may sometimes recogonize it. Anyway, I'm not sure about it. OK.

When I turn my Garmin 550 on it says loading maps, then goes to the select a local: It's frozen their on United States i push OK and nothing happens can not change the Locale it's frozen I tried...


Hi tkfranks331,

Press the power key and hold it if the screen of your Zumo is frozen. Keep holding the power key while pressing the key that has a plus symbol ("+") on it. This will reset your device and unfreeze the screen. You can also try calibrating the screen by pressing the power key for one full minute.

If this does not work, please follow these steps.

1. Update the internal disk software. Download and install WebUpdater on the computer. Please visit this link to download the WebUpdater.

2. Open WebUpdater on the computer.

3. Connect the Zumo 550 to the computer with its USB cable.

4. WebUpdater will automatically search for updates.

5. Follow the prompts to download any pertinent updates for the Zumo 550.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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

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.

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!

Connection problem between a nokia n95 8gb and zumo 550


I have recently purchased a Zumo 550 and successfully copied across selected phone book entries from a Nokia N95 without the need to use any additional apps:-

1) Assuming the N95 and Zumo are paired via BlueTooth
2) In N95 Contacts - use 'Mark' / 'Mark All' as necessary to select the contact entries you wish to transfer to the Zumo 550
3) In N95 Contacts - select 'Options' then 'Send Business Card' then 'Via Bluetooth'
4) Select the Zumo 550 device from the list of paired Bluetooth devices
5) Contact data is transferred from N95 phonebook to Zumo 550 phonebook

Interestingly, Garmin don't seem to list the Nokia N95 as being a supported device on their website, but the above process worked for me!!

My Zumo would not start after a normal shutdown. I removed the battery and left it for a few minutes, reconnected battery and it started OK. I guess it locked up for some unknown reason.
