motorbike owners with ZUMO 500/550 !

if anyone has a zumo 550 on the bike you need to check your cradle NOW!!

open the back of the cradle (4 screws) chances are if its been raining the circuit board is wet.

there is a ribbon connector at the bottom of the board that links to the pins on the cradle. The ribbon cable can burn out if its wet.

pull the brown retainer out and look at the ribbon for any arcing.

That meants the zumo is not charged by the bike and the zumo can also be fried.

dry it out and repack the mount with non-conductive dielectric grease.

A new mount is €80 / 120CHF

the zumo is rated as IPX-7 (1m underwater for 30 min) but the mount is not waterproof

this happened to me last week in slovenia and meant a day trip to Graz to find a dealer that had a mount.
