The temperature range listed in the manual is 32F to 140F. Mine is always powered on or taken inside and I haven't had any problems but I don't have a lot of riding time below freezing yet.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

I didn't think of looking in the manual

Yeah, it can get flakey below freezing, but at least it starts up. I had a hard drive model in years past that would just throw up an error message that it was too cold to spin up.

Maybe there is something wrong with the rider, especially for riding when it is that cold out.:mrgreen:

The LCD display on my Uniden HR2510 froze/cracked when my truck was parked during a winter hunting trip.

liquid in them is not water, if you had something freeze & crack, it must have been damaged to begin with to have water in it, water is the only liquid that defies physics by expanding at freezing point, any other liquid, solid or gas contracts with cold

I use numerous items with lcd in extreme cold, most that happens is the screen goes blank till it warms up

I've been using my Zumo for a couple of winters now, have ridden in temps as low as 15º F and have had no issues...yet.
