Re: Nuvi 660 Question
Thanks Mike -
I do have a pigtail coming off the battery as you do and might try plugging a regular old battery tender charger into that to see what happens.
I've resisted using it in the past as the warnings that came with the BMW Charger have stern warnings about potential damage to bmw electronics when using any other charger. Hopefully going straight to the battery isn't going to harm anything.
I'm going to give it one more try today as I have some errands to run. I'll take the bike. I found an older thread where Hopz advised leaving the Zumo alone and allowing it to turn itself off. Hopefully that will allow all circuits to close themselves and remain off.
I don't have any other accessories ( lights, horns etc) so I'm not sure what might still be live. The charger re powered the Zumo from both powerlet ports, I was hoping it might be some cross feed from the dash port...but that wasn't it.
One last question - Mike, are you using a BMW charger into that pigtail ,another Canbus friendly brand, or just a standard battery tender?
Thanks for the reply, I appreciate it!
