Greetings my fellow Beemerphiles
I bought a NIB Garmin Zumo 550 off eBay for $625.00, all the gear was included, and it was NIB, unopened etc etc
I used it for a whole season, no problem, all was good, and after a long stint off the bike (10 days) I was geared up n ready to go and my bike wouldn't start. Major dead battery. I'd like to blame my 4 year old daughter for playing with the ignition or PIAA running lights, but I can't be sure. My running lites go off with the ignition but the red LED was iluminated when I put the battery charger on, but it was dead as a doornail.
So after making the bike happy again I turned my GPS on in the driveway and it showed road kill status for the battery and switched off.
I put in on the AC charger when we got home and in the morning it would still say low battery and turn off.
One would think after a 200+ miles ride it would be charged sufficiently, but it will not hold a charge. I am curious as to what the draw is/would have been on the unit when everything is turned off.
I am clueless to electrical stuff but I am not a completely in the dark, so if a someone would illucidate on my fading power problem I would be most appreciative.
