Hard wired zumo 660 switches to am radio between songs
« on: February 11, 2016, 11:00:51 pm »
I have only had this bike for a few weeks.  I am noticing that when playing music from my hard wired zumo 660 through the bike speakers that between songs the bike will go to another source until a new song starts on the zumo.  At first it was playing songs from my iPhone which was paired up.  It then started going to the am radio.  It happens on every song.

I am guessing I have some setting screwed up. Looking for suggestions...thanks

Ok...NAV will show up in two locations on the lcd  screen.  It will show NAV in the middle or it will show NAV in smaller font and off to the left.

If it is set to the NAV on the left, it works like it should.


It appears the alt source NAV off will remove the smaller NAV on the lcd.  However, by doing that the problem returns.

The workaround seems to be have the alt source NAV on.  However, I am open to suggestions on what else I am missing.

I don't have the manual handy, but it sounds like it's working as designed. The GPS will override whatever audio source is selected so that you can hear spoken directions from it without having to select it as the audio source when listening to the radio, satellite, or device 2. Not sure if you can select the GPS as the audio source, but it sounds like you have when it doesn't fall back to the radio during song switch.

So the gps was overriding the audio source while playing music, but during the pause it reverts back to the audio source, just like it would do after giving GPS directions?

Sounds reasonable.....new user error  :001:

I tell you an hour of that switching was sure irritating.  Lol

Yes it''s working as it is designed to do - the NAV input over-rides anything else
that has been Selected as the Source ( Radio, iPod etc ).

To listen to the music from your Zuno 660 without switching
to another Source between tracks, simply Select NAV as the Audio Source,
by repeatedly pressing the Mode/Menu button ( "M" ) until NAV is diplayed in the Centre of the Display.

If you have something else Selected as the Audio Source, such as "RADIO",
then if you Play music on your Zumo 660 it will over-ride the RADIO Selection,
and NAV will appear on the Display as you have noticed,
until the Audio output stops briefly between each track.

You could try using software to change the way your music is stored on the Zumo 660,
by removing the standard time gap between each track, so that there is no gap,
and each song plays continuously one after another,
which should stop the Trophy audio system from switching back to the Selected audio source,
but the easiest way is just to Select NAV as the Audio source, as above.
