Noticed on my last ride that the zumo didnt appear to be running from bike power ( its hard wires to the battery) and sure enough half way through the ride I get a low battery warning, with the unit shutting down not long after.
I didnt worry to much about it at the time as I was on my way home and figure it must have blown the fuse.
Once home a little investigation proved the the fuse was intact, and I had power to the fuse atleast, next the power cable was tested and I was able to find power on two of the four pins, but without a wiring schematic I wasnt sure if that was good or bad.
Same goes for the cradle pins found power on one(3rd from the left,front row), but what of the other 12 or so. again a a wiring schematic would have been handy.
Decided I'd test the unit in the car cradle, worked fine. atleast that means the unit itself is OK.
Nothing else for it, but ring Garmin.
Explained the problem with the tech support guy, who pretty much agreed that the cradle maybe toast.
it was decided that I should sent them the power cable and cradle for further testing, where they will either repair it or replace it, but they are out of stock of replacement cradles, so lets hope it can be repaired, and that it doesnt take then to long to sort it out and get it back to me.
I dont have a very good feeling about this, have read a few storys on the net about ppl having issues with the cradle especially if they get real wet ( ie when washing the bike), one guy has had 3 cradles in 5 years
, and at $115 each its not something I want to replace.
