different modes of transportation. Routing
and navigation are calculated differently
based on your usage mode. For example,

want to change usage modes.

Using Hands-free Calling
Using Hands-free
Using Bluetooth technology, your zūmo can
connect to your mobile phone to become a
hands-free device.
To determine whether your device with
Bluetooth technology is compatible with the
zūmo, go to www.garmin.com/bluetooth.
Pairing Your Devices
Bluetooth wireless technology establishes
a wireless link between devices, such as a
mobile phone 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.
To pair and connect, your device and the
zūmo must be turned on and be within 33
feet (10 meters) of each other. The zūmo can
be connected to a phone and a headset at the
same time.
Initiate pairing from your zūmo or from your

page are green
. When it loses satellite
signals, the bars turn red or clear

Caring for Your zūmo
Your zūmo contains sensitive electronic
components that can be permanently
damaged if exposed to excessive shock

materials and does not require user
maintenance other than cleaning. Clean the
outer casing (not the touchscreen) using
a cloth dampened with a mild detergent
solution, and then wipe dry. Avoid chemical
cleaners and solvents that can damage plastic
Cleaning the Touchscreen
Clean the touchscreen 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
Protecting Your zūmo

exposure to extreme temperatures can
occur, because it can cause permanent

this while operating a vehicle. Never
use a hard or sharp object to operate the
touchscreen, or damage may result.

from sight when not in use. Remove the
residue on the windshield left by the
