To clear out everything except trip logs:
Delete your favourites from the Zumo screen menus
Delete Trips from the trip planner app.
Delete Temp.gpx and Current.gpx from the Garmin folder via Windows Explorer.
Reboot the Zumo
I have sometimes found it necessary to turn it off completely - hold the power button in for a while until the red OFF button shows on screen and tap that. I haven't found out why this would be the case though, and it hasn't been consistent.

Any routes and waypoints on the SD card can be deleted from within Basecamp, or by deleting the files from within Windows Explorer.

Just to clarify that, as I said any gpx file in that GPX folder should be deleted, not just temp.gpx
