Help, Zumo 660 install

Post by salty1 »



I've installed a Zumo 660 on my 2006 Wing and all is fine except I'm getting no audio from the Garmin through the bike's AUX circuit. The audio out female plug (Zumo) was mated to the bike's aux-in male plug. I didn't try to connect anything else except to power the Garmin. The Garmin's audio works independently just fine, directions and music. My mp3 player also plays music just fine through the bike's audio system. I'm somewhat at at a loss why the Garmin output is not coming through the bike's system. Any help would be much appreciated.

Okay I figured it out! The Zumo has an optional powered cradle for its point of attachment on the bike. The cradle was not getting power so the Garmin was on battery power and all voice or music came through it's speaker. As soon as the cradle was properly powered and plugged into the bike's aux-in circuit, Garmin directions and stored music came through on the bike's system. So glad to have it! :D
