Cool Zumo 665 updates?

Just updated my Zumo 665 with latest maps(2014) and firmware, on my little data pipe it took all night to download ( <1.5 Mbps).

Now it does not see my XM antenna and my cell phone (Droid Razor) does not work, even though it shows as paired and gives status. HMMMMMMM, Garmin? What have you done now?

Any one else have the same issues? I need to do a 84k service this weekend so will troubleshoot connections and re-pair the bluetooth. I will let you know what I find.

Re: Zumo 665 updates?

Nope.
Don't remember how long it took.
So, unfortunately cannot offer any suggestions.

Re: Zumo 665 updates?

I recently loaded the new maps but it did not have a firmware update for the 660. Maybe I was lucky?

Question Re: Zumo 665 updates?

Started working again with no input from me, took the bike apart anyway for service, checked all the connections, no movement. Oh Well, the Gremlins strike again, I guess I gotta ring that little bell more....grin.

Glad you got it working again Bob.
I did a map update in September but I can't recall if I did any firmware upgrade while I was at it... (A.G.E virus )

Re: Zumo 665 updates?

I did update and now I can no longer upload routes from mapsource. I called Garmin and their reply was "yeah, you have to use Basecamp now". Nice way to make people use an inferior product. I guess I will just have to bite the bullet and learn Basecamp, juk!

Re: Zumo 665 updates?

Try mapquest on line; at times its a pain to modify the route, but it works while when I've tried Base Camp I cannot get it to do anything!!

the first software my garmin unit came with was also a what the F***?!!

Continue to use Mapsource, if you like. Save file as a GPX instead of a GDB.

Connect your 665 to your PC via USB cable. Click on your saved GPX file and drag it into the Zumo 665 GPX folder using Windows XP, Windows 7, or Windows 8.
