I have my Zumo connected to the factory can-bus adapter in front of the battery box. When shutting down the bike the Zumo would stay on for about 30 secs and then bring up a screen asking if I wanted to continue on battery power. If nothing was selected it would switch itself off automatically.

For some reason that feature is no longer working. Any ideas on where to look to fix this?

Thanks.

i have a defective pin in the craddle and zumo stays on battery until drained if not shut off manually. check if it gets power from bike or runs on battery. use car holder and pull out cigarette lighter power adapter.

When the bike starts, the Zumo starts. It just doesn't shut down after the bike. It's like the Can-bus is staying active when it shouldn't be . . . .

My NavIII (aka StreetPilot 2820) does stay on for a few minutes after you turn off the key. There's no internal battery on this thing (why not I can't say, there's certainly plenty of room for one and it would be very useful) so I know exactly when it's powered. It's probably plugged into the same accessory plug as the BMW Zumo.

Anyway, it comes on when you turn the key to the on position. Sometimes when I start the bike the unit resets, like the starter draws enough current to starve the GPS, but this doesn't happen every time. When I turn the key off the GPS stays on for a couple of minutes, then shuts off. That appears to be by design.

Maybe it's the same with your Zumo. Try waiting a little while after you turn off the bike.

That's the way mine works when I just turn off the ignition. However, it also does some other weird things.

If I turn off the Zumo before I turn off the ignition the Zumo will turn itself back on when the CANbus shuts down. And it comes on under bike power, not the Zumo's internal power. Not good if you walk away from your bike too soon and don't catch it. Potential here for the Zumo to drain your bike's battery!

Another CANbus related issue. I noticed that when the bike is on a BMW CANbus-aware battery charger using the stock accessory socket that when you remove the battery charger the Zumo will turn itself on and be operating under bike power. Again, not good.

Mine behaves similarly. For some reason, this week, the unit has begun switching off the way it's supposed too. After about 20-30 secs, a screen comes asking if you want to continue on battery power, if you say yes it runs from the internal Zumo battery, if you tap no it switches off immediately, if you do nothing there's a countdown timer on the selection screen and once it's count down, again the unit switches off. I'm happy. The bike battery drain is manageable as long as one remembers that anything "opening the port" (like a the battery charger) powers up the Can-bus and if the Zumo is connected it too powers up. Hence the potential drain.
