New to the Garmin Zumo XT. Have had a 395lm for about 5 years. Just mounted both on new motorcycles. Not too difficult, but puzzled about my new Zumo XT. Seems to have a mind of its own. Nothing wrong with it, but not sure it is charging off the motorcycle battery. When I turn it off with the button on the back, sometimes I can turn it back on and sometimes to just stays blank? Tested it in the car and it worked off the lighter. Then I charged it on the computer and it works. I worked off the motorcycle battery for a day and then not. Everything else tied to the battery is working. Any tips.

Welcome to the forums.

With your XT in the bike cradle, the XT should switch itself on when it receives power from the battery.
Does it do that ?

If not test the voltage on the contacts of the cradle - make sure that you are getting power at the two pins. Mine shows 5.21v dc.

If not, check your in-line fuse and your connections to the bike power. If it comes from a fused circuit on the bike, check that fuse as well.

Then its a phone call to Garmin.
