Chet's Corner: Zumo Compass Page

19 December 2006 @ 5:15 PM  /

Featurechetscorner_1_16I am taking time out of my busy pre-Christmas schedule to answer more of your questions.  It might be a surprise to most but today's question is about the zumo 550.  It's a good thing too, I wouldn't want to neglect this product.  Here goes:

Q:  How do you get to the compass page on the Zumo 550?  I have set it to off-road and the screen doesn't come up. Do you have to have a certain area of a map, or a topo map loaded?  I just recently purchased one, and am trying to learn all the screens without going out in the car or bike.

A: In order to get the compass page to come up on your zumo 550, there are two requirements.  The first is that you have to be in "Off Road" mode.  To do this, go to "Settings > "Navigation" > "Route Preference" and change it to "Off Road".  The second requirement is that the unit is in a route.  This means you need to go to "Where To?" and set a destination.  Once you have done this, you can press the page button (the button on the left with the square on it), or tap the arrow on the map screen.  This will take you to the compass page. 

Well, I'm off again.  Keep those comments coming in about things you'd like to see here on the Garmin blog.
