Garmin Numo 550 problem

Just bought the unit and used it on a trip to Calgary, Alberta - great unit! However, I cannot get it out of the cradle..... It's not locked in with the security screw either..

Any clues?

The lever on top of the cradle pushes two pins into the Zumo body. If you pull up the lever, the pins should come out (springs). If the pins won't come out I suspect a little dirt to be in the holes of the Zumo. Try pushing on the Zumo into the cradle to give the pins more room to come out.

Here you see the pins. If pushing on the Zumo doesn't work, try squirting a small drop of WD40 where the pins are.

Vibrations can cause the security screw to screw itself into the locked position. Try to unscrew the lock counter clockwise until you hear or feel the threads click. It sounds like a lot of screwing around ,but it happened to me and I left the screw driver @ home. I had to wait to "unlock" the device till I got home. JGood
