    Sat Nav problems - Help!

    Plugged my Garmin590 into the sat nav mounting today and twice it turned itself off. In addition, it now won't play my music files, it tells me I need a powered mount and speakers. It has always worked before! Any ideas please?

    Seems like there's no Power reaching the Cradle.

    Check the In-Line fuse to see if it has blown.

    If you didn't do the installation yourself you may have to hunt around to find it !

    If whoever installed it followed the guidance from this Forum, then it may be tucked inside
    the left hand mirror pod. ( Grasp the outer edge of the mirror and pull it carefully
    towards the rear of the bike and it will hinge out of the pod ).

    If it ls not there, then the Power Feed that "should" have been used is located
    behind and below the panels surrounding the left Mirror Pod.

    Follow this Topic for more guidance on where the Power connection should have been made,
    and once found, trace the wiring up to to the fuse and on to the Garmin cradle.  :028:

    IIRC, you will also lose power to the SAT mount if the radio fuse is dead, which can easily be tested by seeing if the radio is working. I seem to recall this happening to me on a tour after a wet overnight under a motorcycle cover.

    Cheers. The radio is fine, speakers are fine etc, it's just the sat nav. I'll check the fuse when I get a minute next week and report back. Thanks guys, much appreciated.

    I too experienced power issues with SatNav.  I resolved mine with a new cradle and finally a refurbished new Zumo590LM.  It was the connection pins wearing and not connecting properly.  The unit and cradle had covered 45,000 miles and the pins on the back of the Zumo showed clear signs of wear.

    I did find my whole unit experienced significant vibrating and firmed up the mount a bit with cushioning around the mount and secured with zip ties.

    I also find the USB power mount to be intermittent if the voltage drops it appears the technology cuts out power to accessories to reserve it all for the important power requirements of the bike.

    LOve, light, and kindness,

    Dave

    I had a similar issue with my zumo 660. Turn out to be the cradle, it works perfectly in the car cradle. I upgraded to the 595 and have noticed substantial vibration on the mount which has me concerned.

    Those worried about vibration might want to look into Touratech's locking mount: https://touratech-usa.com/Store/Touratech-Zumo-590LM-595LM-Locking-Handlebar-Mount

    In addition to providing a tiny bit of security, it's mounted on four rubber bushings, which decreases high-frequency vibration to zero. It still moves around, but nothing that has ever made me think "hmm, that's concerning."
