USING HANDS-FREE
FEATURES
Using Bluetooth® wireless technology,
your zūmo can connect to your mobile
phone and wireless headset to become a
hands-free device. To see if your device
with Bluetooth technology is compatible
with the zūmo, visit www.garmin.com/

Bluetooth wireless technology
establishes a wireless link between
devices, such as a mobile phone,
wireless headset, and the zūmo. The
first time you use two devices together
you must “pair” them by establishing a
relationship using a PIN/ passkey. After
the initial pairing, the two devices can
connect automatically each time you turn
them on.
NOTE: You might have to
set your device to connect
automatically when the zūmo is

Using a Remote Antenna
Cleaning the Unit
Caring for Your zūmo
Cleaning the Touch Screen
You can use an optional external remote
antenna (Garmin GA 25MCX). To
purchase, go to www.garmin.com/
products/zumo, and click the
Accessories link.
Pull back the weather cap from the MCX
connector located on the back of the
zūmo, and connect the antenna.
Your zūmo contains sensitive electronic
components that can be permanently
damaged if exposed to excessive shock
or vibration outside normal motorcycle
or automobile use. To minimize the
risk of damage to your zūmo, avoid
dropping your unit and operating it in
extreme high-shock and high-vibration
environments.
zūmo 500/550 Owner’s Manual
The zūmo is constructed of highquality materials and does not require
user maintenance other than cleaning.
Clean the unit’s outer casing (not the
touch screen) using a cloth dampened
with a mild detergent solution, and
then wipe dry. Avoid chemical cleaners
and solvents that can damage plastic
components.
Clean the touch screen with a soft, clean,
lint-free cloth. Use water, isopropyl
alcohol, or eyeglass cleaner, if needed.
Apply the liquid to the cloth, and then
gently wipe the touch screen.
Protecting Your zūmo
• Carry and store your zūmo in the
included carrying case.
• Do not store your zūmo where
prolonged exposure to extreme
temperatures can occur (such as in
the trunk of a car), because it can
cause permanent damage.
55
APPENDIX
• Though a PDA stylus can also be
used to operate the touch screen,
never attempt this while operating
a vehicle. Never use a hard or sharp
object to operate the touch screen or
damage may result.
Avoiding Theft
• To avoid theft, remove the zūmo and
mount from sight when not in use.
• Use the Garmin Lock™ feature. See
page 10.
Changing the Fuse
An AGC/3AG 2-Amp, high-breaking
capacity, 1500 A-rated fuse is located
at the tip of the vehicle adapter.
Periodically, you may need to change
the fuse. Unscrew the black, round end
piece, and replace the fuse.
About GPS Satellite Signals
Your zūmo must acquire GPS (Global
Positioning System) satellite signals
to operate. If you are indoors, near tall
buildings or trees, or in a parking garage,
your zūmo cannot acquire satellites.
Go outside to an area free from tall
obstructions to use your zūmo.
When your zūmo has acquired satellite
signals, the signal strength bars on the
Menu page are green
. When it
loses satellite signals, the bars turn red or
disappear
.
For more information about GPS, go to
www.garmin.com/aboutGPS.

Problem/Question
Solution/Answer
How do I know my
zūmo is in USB Mass
Storage Mode?
When your zūmo is in USB Mass Storage Mode, a picture of a
zūmo connected to a computer is shown. Also, you should see
a new removable disk drive listed in My Computer (Windows) or
a new volume (drive) on your desktop (Mac).
My computer never
senses that the zūmo is
connected.
1. Unplug the USB cable from your computer.
2. Turn the zūmo off.
3. Plug the USB cable into your computer and your zūmo.
The zūmo automatically turns on and goes into USB Mass
Storage Mode.
I cannot find any drives
named “Garmin” in my
list of drives.
If you have several network drives mapped on your computer,
Windows may have trouble assigning drive letters to your
Garmin or SD drives. Follow the steps on the next page to
assign (map) your drive letters.
I get a message saying
“Unsafe Removal of
Device” when I unplug
the USB cable.
Windows: Double-click the Unplug or Eject
icon in your
system tray. Select USB Mass Storage Device and click Stop.
Select the Garmin drive and click OK. You can unplug your
zūmo now.
Mac: Drag the volume icon to the Trash. The Trash icon
changes to an Eject icon. You can unplug your zūmo now.
