Garmin Zumo 550 wiring problem
First off, I have searched.
I purchased a used Garmin Zumo 550. I wired it onto my bike and had the following issue:
The GPS is not getting power from the bike cradle. It is running on the batteries. When I put it in the car cradle it is getting power. I checked the pins on both cradles and have power, positive and negative, on the same pins on both cradles. Below is a representation of those pins with the + and - showing the location of pins with power on both cradles.
. . . . . . . . . . . .
. . + . . . . . . . . -
Same voltage, 11.69VDC, on the same pins on both cradles, however, the unit won't run on the bike cradle.
I am hoping some electrical farkle guru can give me suggestions for troubleshooting.
